Camp Walter Johnson

Since 1974, Camp Walter Johnson has touched the lives of over 55,000 underprivileged children.
This Salvation Army Camp began with a generous land donation from a local Denton, N. C. resident,
Walter Johnson. He gifted The Salvation Army 143 acres for the campsite, as well as an additional
piece of real estate that we were able to sell for $650,000. The funds from the sale helped finance the
initial construction of the camp. Camp Walter Johnson is administered by The Salvation Army North and
South Carolina Divisional Headquarters, in Charlotte, NC.
