Regional Summer Camps for Faith Communities
Camp Gifford has overnight and wilderness camps
From June 21 to July 30, The Salvation Army's Camp Gifford on Loon Lake will offer six weekly overnight camps for children, ages seven to 12, and adventure or wilderness camps for teens, ages 13 to 17.
The camp provides a Monday to Friday outdoor camp experience for children that is "exciting, educational and spiritual," said Daniel Tollerud, who is the director for the Salvation Army's Spokane Youth Center and Camp Gifford.
Children will have the opportunity to play games, create fun arts and crafts, learn archery, swim, boat, sing and learn more about God in a fun and uplifting environment, he said.
Teen Adventure Camps provide teen wilderness fun with activities such as hiking, sailing, high ropes elements and outdoor survival skills.
"Teens will explore nature, and will grow and develop their relationship with Christ while developing friendships with other teens from around the Pacific Northwest," he said.
Fees are on a sliding scale and there are scholarships available.
Bus transportation is available from Spokane.
