“Ready, Set, GO!” is a phrase that many children will have the chance to hear this summer at The Salvation Army’s Wonderland Camp in Camp Lake, Wisconsin.
Wonderland Camp hosts children (ages 7-18) from Chicago and surrounding areas throughout the months of June, July and August for several different camping experiences including Sports Camp, Music Camp, Teen Camp, Character Building Camp, Bible Life and Gospel Arts Camp, and High Adventure Camp. Campers can try out high ropes, rock wall, zip line, archery, boating, swimming, sports, music instruction, Bible classes, etc.
This year, we expect to welcome 1,000 campers and show them the love of God through Christ as they experience the wonderful activities that Wonderland has to offer.
This summer’s theme will focus on Chapter 12 of the book of Hebrews, which encourages us to hold strong and fast to our faith in God during all good and trying times. Each camper will be encouraged and challenged to hear God’s life-changing Word and to put it into everyday practice.
Summer youth camps are run through the Youth Department at the Metropolitan Divisional Headquarters under the leadership of Captains Michael and Kristina Sjogren along with a team of teen, young adult, and adult leaders who come alongside each summer to minister to the youth.
