Holiday Camp develops lifelong friendships
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.
