The Salvation Army will be providing free summer camps for children starting in June.
According to Nancy Wolfe, Service Extension Liasion of the Salvation Army, the camps are free and are offered to children of different ages in the area. The activities will take place at Hidden Falls Camp in Bedford.
“The only thing that needs provided for the children is transportation,” Wolfe said. “Applications for the camps can be picked up at First Church of God, 1200 U.S. 52 in Rushville.”
Camps will start as early as June 10.
There are several camps throughout the summer for children to attend.
Children ages 6-8 can attend Camp Mini Mites. This camp will have an evangelistic focus while introducing children to the outdoors as God’s creation. The camp will be from June 10-13.
There will be several camps throughout June and July for ages 6-17. These campers will stay in tents in the extreme camp area, learning advanced outdoor skills and gain more rustic camping experience. Regular devotions and bible study will take place in a campfire setting.
June 21-28 will be the Indiana Music Institute Camp for ages 9-17. This is a working camp for music instruction including brass, vocal, guitar, percussion and more.
June 30-July 4 will be Bible Camp for ages 7-17. The main focus of this camp is bible study with outdoor activities as electives.
July 21-25 is teen camp, ages 13-17. Teens will have the opportunity for outdoor education while being presented with the gospel and the tenants of biblical lifestyle.
