Camping at Little Pine Island focuses on having fun in God’s creation and teaching practical skills that many kids have not had the opportunity to learn. Drawn primarily from Salvation Army Community Centers, camper’s physical, social and spiritual needs are met in a way they will take with them long after camp is done.
As an extension of character building programs in local communities, these camps encourage kids to earn emblems in various activities such as physical fitness, ecology, nature, aquatics and safety skills classes that meet every day needs.
Whether an expert or beginner, campers find the experience of being in a choir or band to be fun and educational. Participating in drama and contemporary worship planning helps create tomorrow’s leaders of today’s youth.
