Who We Are

The Salvation Army is a world wide evangelical Christian church, human service agency and nonprofit corporation. Its message is based on the Bible, its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Founded in 1865, The Salvation Army is now active in more than 10,000 communities in the United States and in 107 countries, offering assistance wherever and whenever needed.

Purpose of Salvation Army Camping

The Salvation Army's purpose is to serve the needs of campers: physical, social and spiritual. For the physical needs, our aim is to help campers develop good health habits in cleanliness, proper rest, balanced diet, exercise and care of the body. To meet social needs, the camp provides an opportunity for each camper to contribute to and receive from a group living experience. The aim is to help campers make their own right decisions, stimulate creativity and foster independence. The fact that The Salvation Army is a religious organization makes it possible for its camping program to integrate concern for the spiritual dimension of life. We Believe in God, His Word and what it teaches, and a pattern of living exemplified by Jesus Christ. These purposes are achieved through carefully selected staff, well planned programs and the highest standard of health and safety.

Goals of Salvation Army Camping

  1. To promote an awareness of God, His love, and through the love of Jesus Christ, to aid toward spiritual growth and knowledge of basic human values.

  2. To give children, youth and adults a fun-filled, healthful, safe, educational and inspirational experience in the out-of-doors.

  3. To help develop an understanding, appreciation and a sense of stewardship for the out-of-doors, for the natural environment and for all living creatures.

  4. To help individuals grow in understanding themselves and each other, and especially for children to experience relationships with staff as caring adults and to offer opportunity for people of varied cultures to develop compassion and love for each other.

  5. To provide a loving and supportive environment where families can learn to cope with and solve their problems.

  6. To facilitate creative self-expression through worship, song, work, play physical activity and the development of new skills.

  7. To allow each person to participate in planning programs and in establishing limits and responsibility for the safety and welfare of all

  8. To assist in developing an appreciation of the wonder and joy of the miracles of everyday living

Statement of Doctrines

  1. We Believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by the inspiration of God, and that only they constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.

  2. We Believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.

  3. We Believe that there are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and coequal in power and glory.

  4. We Believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.

  5. We Believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocence, but by their disobedience they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and are such justly exposed to the wrath of God.

  6. We Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by his suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.

  7. We Believe that repentance towards God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit, are necessary to salvation.

  8. We Believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.

  9. We Believe that continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.

  10. We Believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

  11. We Believe in the immortality of the soul; in the resurrection of the body; in the general judgment at the end of the world; in the eternal happiness of the righteous; and in the endless punishment of the wicked.
