For the first time in its more than 100 years of camping ministry, The Salvation Army has decided to cancel its 2020 summer residential camping program due to COVID-19. Any Salvation Army camps with trailers parks and/or cabin rentals across Canada will also be closed until the local health authority gives official approval to open.
The Salvation Army’s number one priority is the safety and security of our campers, staff, leaders and holiday guests, and it’s in this spirit that the decision was made. We respect and support the tireless work and decisions of our government leaders and public health authorities. The Salvation Army’s decision is in keeping with Canadian government requirements and public health rules and guidelines
Each Summer we offer the opportunity for dozens of community children to attend a fun filled week of adventure at Summer Camp! Please visit the Camp Sunrise web site!
The Salvation Army Camp Sunrise is an amazing place filled with a fantastic, compassionate staff who provide delicious, nutritious meals, wonderful adventures and opportunities such as team building exercises, leadership training, confidence building, and the chance to discover life-long friendships. For many kids, a week at camp is a life changing experience that will equip them with valuable life skills.
On behalf of the families we serve, The Salvation Army wishes to thank this year’s sponsors for making this wonderful opportunity available to 50 great kids in our community!
