The Salvation Army's annual summer camp programs are so important. Every year, thousands of kids get a fresh perspective on life as they meet new friends, discover new activities, and get a taste of the great outdoors. As campers learn to swim, play sports, create music, make art, and scout, their trained counselors help them navigate the complicated emotions and struggles often associated with their lives back home.
The Salvation Army Eagle Crest Camp is located in Washburn, IL (just outside Peoria, about 2 hours from Kankakee), and is the Official Camp and Retreat Center for The Salvation Army in Central Illinois & Iowa. The 2019 Summer Camp Season will feature 7 different themed youth camps for various age groups.
