The Salvation Army Camp Paradise Valley Summer Camp Program is for 7-12 year old school age children. It runs from June to the end of July and is made up of week long (Mon.—Sat.) overnight camps. All camp specific information and registration for these camps are run through and handled by local Salvation Army Corps (Churches). If you do not know your local Salvation Army, see the link at the bottom of this section or we would be happy to give you their contact information.
The Salvation Army camping program is divided into two types of camps designed to meet the specific needs of each group it serves.
Type #1—Community Camps
Community Camps are operated for the benefit of children who are referred by social service agencies, such as The Salvation Army, Boys & Girls Clubs, etc. Camp Paradise Valley staff reach out to children providing them with a positive environment for their week at camp. Their camp experience helps them grow, learn, and be encouraged while striving to meet their spiritual, social, recreational & educational needs as appropriate.
Type #2—Salvation Army Camps
Salvation Army Camps are operated for members of youth groups sponsored by The Salvation Army. Camp Paradise Valley staff help campers meet their spiritual, social, recreational, & educational needs through the camp ministry. Salvation Army youth ministry camps include programs such as Girl Guards, Sunbeams, Explorers, Rangers, & Music Conservatory.
Please contact your local Salvation Army unit for information and/or register your child(ren) for a summer camp. Deadlines do apply.
