Today in Morning Discovery, we learned about how to use our talents to praise God! God made each of us with our own special talents and abilities, and he expects us to use those talents to glorify him! Our memory verse for today is "Shout for joy, all the earth, burst into jubilant song and music." (Psalm 98:4)...

FeesOur fees are designed so every family can afford Camp Wonderland. The total cost will vary according to location and can be determined only through contacting your local Salvation Army representative.
Open House - 4:00pm-7:00pm
Come tour the campgrounds, meet the staff, hear about the programs your child will experience. Children are welcome to join in the fun. Our bounce house will be blown up and your child will be able to see a cabin like the one they’ll sleep in. We have found Open House to turn hesitant campers into “I can’t wait to go to camp” kids! Refreshments will be served. RSVP HERE!
Preparing A Child for Camp
Whether this is your child’s first visit to camp or they have been here many times, any trip away from home has the potential to produce anxiety in any child. Here are a few suggestions from Christian Camping International that may help get your child ready for camp:
- Talk about the activities they will be doing: swimming, hiking, arts & crafts, boating, ropes course, and sleeping out. Let them know adults are watching over them.
- Send stamped and addressed postcards with your child so he or she can write home.
- Send a letter. Everyone likes to get mail! Keep the contents positive. Be sure to send mail early or the letter will arrive after the child has returned home.
- Sidestep the separation. Focus on the stories your child can tell you after camp. Please do not suggest to your child that he or she can call home if they get homesick. Telephones are not available for the campers, encourage your child to talk to a staff member if they feel homesick. If we are unable to work things out, we will call you. Usually the child is over any homesickness after the first day.
- Celebrate the homecoming. Plan a special dinner for the evening your child returns and make a welcome home sign!
Today in Morning Discovery, we learned about the importance of keeping our faith in God. Even when we're down, and don't know where to turn, God will always be there to point us in the right direction! Through him, everything is possible! Our memory verse for today is: "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." (Psalm
