Each summer The Salvation Army Camp Hoblitzelle provides a residential camping experience for children
ages 7-17 yrs. While at camp, kids have the opportunity to enjoy a fun and safe environment where they can learn independence, teamwork, and to build new friendships. In addition, they enjoy evening campfires, inspiring chapel services, swimming, organized recreational activities, arts and crafts, and more. All of this while enjoying God's creation and learning about His presence in their lives!
