Thank you for your interest in The Salvation Army’s Ontario Camping Ministry for your child/children.
We offer two camping programs each summer
– “BLAZE” for ages 6-9 at the Jackson’s Point Camp on Lake Simcoe
– “Newport Adventure Camp” for ages 10-16 at Camp Newport on Skeleton Lake near Huntsville

NOTE: In 2018, all campers registering from York Community Church will attend the week of August 20-25.
Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions to these dates.

Families are asked to contribute whatever they are able to the registration cost of this camp but no child will be denied for financial reasons.
Therefore, all families who are asking for financial assistance MUST FIRST APPLY to the Canadian Tire Jump Start program for assistance.  York Community Church will cover any registration costs beyond what is received from Jump Start plus what the family can contribute from their own funds.
