Salvation Army Summer Camp


Each summer, children from low-income Tucson families enjoy fresh air, exercise and new friendships at the annual Discovery Camp program.


The camping experience is more than just a pleasant vacation. Children learn new skills and self-reliance; trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them to mature.


Camp Activities include adventure and scouting, arts and crafts, music development, and sports.


Discovery Camp is for children ages 7 to 12 years and is held in Heber, Arizona at The Salvation Army's Camp Ponderosa.
