FOR OVER 100 YEARS, THE SALVATION ARMY HAS RECOGNIZED THE RESTORATIVE POWER OF NATURE. Camping frees youthful imaginations trapped in the concrete, noise, and pollution of our inner-cities. It restores peace of body and mind to weary parents, and creates undistracted time in which families can bond. Camping also gives elderly men and women a unique way to rediscover pride and independence.
For these reasons, The Salvation Army operates summer and day camps that served 168,751 last year. To reconnect people with nature, temporarily separate them from the circumstances contributing to their strife, and empower them to move forward recognizing hope and opportunity in their lives.
Camp CONNRI is situated on 272 acres of rolling hills, overlooking a pristine 50 acre lake in Ashford, Connecticut. Campers enjoy a wide variety of activities including: swimming, hiking, fishing, boating, baseball, softball, basketball, volleyball, nature studies, arts and crafts and much more. The camp offers a safe, Christian environment that nourishes your child's physical growth, mental maturity, and spiritual enthusiasm. Activities are under the supervision of certified, experienced personnel, where the safety and welfare of all campers is a primary concern of every staff member. The Camp is proud to be accredited by the American Camping Association, the State of Connecticut, and The Salvation Army.
