Summer Camp 2019

Salvation Army Summer Camp Program

The Salvation Army provides a week-long summer camp experience at Camp Del Oro in Nevada City, CA. Our Christian summer camps are greatly discounted for needy families thanks to the generous support of our community. The youth will have a chance to meet other youth from Northern Nevada and Northern California. They interact with a well-trained staff that stays and lives at the camp alongside the campers. They hire only the best staff, who ensure the safety and quality of each child’s experience at Camp Del Oro. ampers enjoy a week of jam-packed fun that includes our giant lake water slide, archery, canoeing, arts and crafts, nature walks and campfire activities.  The Salvation Army has camps for youth between 7 - 17 years old.

Summer Camps

Say Camp/Teen Camp

June 19 - 24
This camp, for young people ages 7-16, will offer the opportunity to earn specific camping badges for troops. They will learn about tools, techniques, and information that is realized more fully in a camp environment.

Sports Camp

June 26 - July 1
For the fifth year in a row we are offering a fun and engaging sports camp. Here campers will have fun playing and learning skills in basketball, soccer, and volleyball. This year we will host this camp for those ages 8-16.

Music and Worship Arts Camp

July 3 - 13
Music Camp is for boys and girls ages 8-16. Music Camp offers instrumental and vocal opportunities and ends with a Final Festival of praise to God on July 13. The tracks offered this year include brass band, voice, guitar, ukulele, bucket drumline, praise & worship band, and timbrels. It is strongly encouraged that kids bring the instrument they want to learn with them to camp. Doing so greatly increases the chance that they will get their first class choice.

For More Information

The camp is available for youth between 7 - 17 years old that would love to attend one of our week-long camps. Please contact us either by phone at 775-688-4555 or email us at salarmy.reno@usw.salvationarmy.org.
We have an informational flyer for those that are attending camp and want to know what will be happening and what to bring.

If You Would Like to Help

We want to make sure every kid has an opportunity to go camping this summer regardless of ability to pay. The blessing the kids will receive from attending camp outweighs the cost of each camper. The Salvation Army of Washoe County sends approximately 50 kids to camp. Each camper costs The Salvation Army $332 each. If you would like to help and make sure each camper can go camping then please donate and help out.
