Summer Employment

It is with a heavy heart that, The Salvation Army Central Territory Leadership, have decided to cancel all divisional camps for summer 2020. We have been doing our best to continue organizing and putting plans in place for the summer while hoping the situation would improve. However, bringing children, teens and adults from around the Metro Division isn't a smart option in the current pandemic.

It is a heart-breaking decision for our leadership to have to make; we have been excited about the plans for our activities, and the effort behind hiring each and every staff. This summer was going to be epic! Above all though, safety and well-being our campers, parents, volunteers and staff come first. It is only best to have our divisional camps if we feel we can confidently keep everyone safe.

We hope more than ever; Wonderland will be that home away from home for all our campers in 2021. We try and create an environment that is care-free, full of memories, friendships and is Christ-centered, away from the normal pressures and worries of normal life for our campers. While this summer is not possible for us, we pray for all of our families that are willing to wait another year for a summer of their life at Wonderland Camp.

· Wonderland Camp will still be open this summer.

· Our Divisional Events/Camps are cancelled.

· If you have already registered for a camp session, you will be getting a full refund.

We pray for good health, peace and happiness during these uncertain times.
