Summer is almost here, but it’s not too late to help a local child get to camp. Each year, The Salvation Army provides hundreds of disadvantaged metro area youth with life-enriching summer activities through our residential camping program.
Activities like boating, nature walks, swimming, and field trips have been proven to help improve self-esteem, friendship skills, social comfort, peer relationships, environmental awareness, and spirituality.
Last year over 600 local children participated in The Salvation Army residential camping program. The youth experienced more than just a fun time, they built positive relationships with peers and God.
For $185 you can help a child in metro Atlanta attend a weeklong summer camp experience in Jasper, GA. Many children are waiting to hear if they will be able to attend summer camp—so your donation is important. Make your sponsorship gift today by clicking here. (be sure to designate your gift to Send A Child to Camp)
