COVID-19 INFORMATION FOR CAMP ARNOLD

Camp Arnold, like many businesses across the nation and around the world, has been affected by Covid-19 in many ways.  Our loss of income over the last year has been phenomenal and, even worse, our inability to serve those that we care for, has been completely disabled since March of 2020.  As we look toward a brighter tomorrow in which we can once again serve our youth in the summer camps, our local schools through Outdoor Educational programming, and numerous churches, and community organizations as a retreat/conference facility we are putting plans into place to ensure the safety of each of our guests as well as our staff and volunteers.

We’ll be doing out best to keep the information on this page current.  With things changing fast, and going back and forth with some guidelines, we may find it challenging for the included information to always be correct and pertinent.  Please feel free to call or email using the information in the next paragraph if you have any comments or questions. Thanks!

Below you will find downloads and information regarding our Adventure Programming (teambuilding, high ropes course, low ropes activities, etc.), Retreat Information, and information pertaining to our summer camping programs (Day Camp, Overnight Camp and Wilderness Camp).  Please check back through the upcoming months as we will be making changes to this page in accordance with State and local guidelines as things are clarified.  We hope you find the information contained on this page helpful.  If you have any questions or concerns that aren’t addressed here please feel free to contact our Camp Director, Jeff Potts at jeff.potts@usw.salvationarmy.org.  You can also call our office at 253-847-2511 (Please know that staffing in our office is inconsistent during this crisis.  There is typically someone in the office most weekday mornings from approximately 8:00 a.m. until Noon.).

SUMMER INFORMATION

We will hope to have our Summer 2022 dates and plans up by January.  

We are planning to have overnight and wilderness camp back in operation – we can’t wait!  Check back in with us in early 2022 to see our dates and to read about our plans for Summer 2022.  If you’re not familiar with what we normally do in the summertime click on the “Summer” menu link above.

Our camps normally start about a week after local schools release for summer and run through the first week of August.  Our actual dates will be posted in early 2022.

Meanwhile, have a great year.  Remind the world how much Jesus loves them by, you know…, loving them.  God bless!
