Sal­va­tion Army Cap­tain Jen­nifer Hillier re­mem- bers, dur­ing her teenage years, spend­ing many sum­mers work­ing at The Sal­va­tion Army Camp, “My life was changed at­tend­ing and work­ing at camp, I made friend­ships and con­nec­tions that I still have to­day. I have heard many tes­ti­monies from adults whose lives were trans­formed by at­tend­ing camp as a child.”

The Sal­va­tion Army op­er­ates a camp at Pine Lake, Al­berta. Hol­i­day Camp is de­signed for chil­dren 7-12 years of age and pro­vides recre­ational pro­gram such as wall climb­ing, ca­noe­ing, pool ac­tiv­i­ties, as well as bi­ble teach­ing and op­portu- ni­ties for so­cial con­nec­tion. Teen Camp is de­signed for young peo­ple ages 13-16 and pro­vides sim­i­lar ac­tiv­i­ties as Hol­i­day Camp but with spe­cially tailored pro­gram­ming for this age group.

The camp also hosts a week for Moms and Tots, when Mom’s and their chil­dren up to the age of five can en­joy a week of fun and qual­ity time to­gether. This is de­signed to be a ‘time out’ of the stress of reg­u­lar life where Mom’s get to fo­cus on spend­ing time with their chil­dren and con­nect­ing with other Moth­ers.

“Each sum­mer, chil­dren have the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend Hol­i­day Camp - a week­long camp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that for many, will im­pact the rest of their lives,” said Hillier.
