There was a buzz in the air as children from St. Thomas decided to make The Salvation Army their March Break destination. A camp staff from St. Thomas Citadel combined with a camp staff from North York Temple (Toronto) made for a dynamic and energetic team.

Theme days included: Superhero Day, Ooey Gooey Day, Hawaiian/Pirate Day and Camper’s Choice.  Activities included arts and crafts (pretty amazing puppets created), sports and games (another round of musical chairs please!?), electives (choir, timbrels, and bucket drumming) and Bible time with Corps Officer Capt. Mark Hall, where children learned how to talk with God and that He could be their Superhero.

Captain Mark states “children love Bible stories and they love to know that Jesus walked on water. As miraculous as that is, He walks with them to school – as simple as that is. It is very important for them to know this.”

The week concluded on Friday evening where parents came to an evening program that showcased all they had participated in – choir singing, drummers drumming, timbrels playing and camp songs sung!  See you in 2015!

Here’s what people said!

“My son had an absolute BLAST!  See you next year!”
“The camp staff were great.  Thanks for a great week!”
“Thanks for taking such good care of my children.”
“My children had a great time and Emery cried because he had to go home!” 
From a camper: “This is the best day ever.”
 “It was wonderful to hear my child pray at home.”
