In a few short weeks, campers from The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte will gather at Salvation Army Camp Walter Johnson. They will kiss their loved ones goodbye and climb on a bus headed for a week of building lifelong friendships, reconnecting with nature, and participating in action-packed activities that help them face challenges, develop confidence, and learn valuable life lessons.
Sending kids to Camp Walter Johnson is a long-time tradition of The Salvation Army. Since 1974, Camp Walter Johnson has impacted the lives of more than 55,000 children throughout North and South Carolina. Camp Walter Johnson offers one week camping sessions for children ages 6-18 and a five-week music conservatory program for children ages 10-17.
"In today's challenging economy, summer camp is a distant dream for many children," said Marty Clary, Executive Director of The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club. "Because of the kindness of countless donors, The Salvation Army can help make that dream come true."
