$150 can help provide a child an unforgettable camp experience. Summer hunger is a big problem for children living in poverty and donations will help us provide lunch and snacks to all of the participating children. We'll also provide opportunities to make crafts, take field trips, and join in character building activities.

SUMMER CAMP: CAMP WALTER JOHNSON

The Salvation Army also sends local children who are 6-12 years old and experience poverty to five days of respite at Camp Walter Johnson in Denton, North Carolina. Camp Walter Johnson is owned and operated by The Salvation Army and has a trained and compassionate staff. We had 141 children attend overnight camp in 2019.

A $225 donation provides the camp experience to one child for five days and nights.

Donations will be used to provide a camping experience that is safe and loving for children where they can play sports, swim, explore the outdoors, stretch their hearts and minds, make new friends and find a sense of purpose.
