About Camp Walter Johnson

Since 1974, Camp Walter Johnson has impacted the lives of over 55,000 children throughout North and South Carolina. Children who visit our camps generally come from many socioeconomic backgrounds, and, in some cases, from unhealthy family or neighborhood environments. All Salvation Army camps provide kids an opportunity be in a positive environment for the summer to grow, learn, and be encouraged while striving to meet their spiritual, social, recreational and educational needs.

Walter Johnson offers a place where eyes are opened, lives are enriched and souls are nurtured. Many successful individuals write letters to local offices saying how attending a Salvation Army camp was the turning point in their life. Memories are made and friendships are formed that can literally last a lifetime.

Camp Walter Johnson offers one week camping sessions for children ages 6-17, and a five-week Music Conservatory program for children ages 10-17.
