Youth Summer Camps

Every summer, The Salvation Army sends dozens of youth to experience summer camp.  The Salvation Army offers a number of unique camping experiences for youth of all ages at our Hidden Falls Camp in Bedford, IN.  The 706-acre camp includes lodging, dining, miles of nature trails, an indoor swimming pool, fishing, a challenge course, paintball, archery, and much more.  Summer camps are an excellent time for youth to experience the outdoors, escape the distractions of home, and learn about God.
