You are in: Parents/Guardians
Thank you for your consideration of sending your child to The Salvation Army's Camp CONNRI! We encourage you to fill out your application completely in order to secure a spot for your child. Please locate your nearest Salvation Army corps or service unit in order to do so.
During your child's stay at camp, we will do all that we can to ensure that your child has a safe and rewarding experience. He or she will sleep in a cabin with up to nine other children in the same age range. Members of the counseling staff supervise the campers at all times, and sleep in rooms attached to the cabins. The camp provides sheets and blankets, but your child may want to bring a pillow and a sleeping bag.
Camp CONNRI is a Christian camp. Daily morning and bedtime devotions are a part of the regular schedule. During the week they will watch a dramatic presentation, which re-enacts some of the events from the life of Jesus after which campers will be given the opportunity to accept Jesus into their hearts. The last day of camp is set aside as a special "Lord's Day." Campers will participate in a morning worship service which includes singing and a Bible presentation. Other daily activities include athletics, arts & crafts, boating, climbing tower, hiking, low ropes course, nature study, swimming and clubs.
The camp staff work very hard to make sure every camper has a safe, healthy and enjoyable camping experience. All activities are carefully supervised by trained camp staff, a nurse is in residence, and a doctor is on call at all times.
During camper orientation, campers are made aware of camp rules: respect for each other, respect for the staff, respect for camp property, respect for nature, and respect for God. Camp staff are expected to show respect for campers at all times. If a camper refuses to abide by camp rules, and poses a danger to himself/herself or to other campers, it may require the camper to return home. Parents/Guardian will be kept informed by telephone during this process.
We hope this information is helpful to you in your planning.
Blessings to you,
Captains David & Stephanie Childs, Camp Directors
