We are reaching out to let you know that, as of yesterday evening our assessment process has finished and we have decided to not open summer camp this summer. It was a hard decision for us to make, but ultimately, for the safety of our campers and their families, our staff, and the communities which we serve, we feel it is the right one.
Camp Ladore has been a safe-haven for campers, their families, church retreats, seniors, and other groups for over 50 years. The Salvation Army has made a commitment to preserve this property for the service of others for the duration of that time, and is continuing to commit resources for future ministry opportunities.
Our season may be cancelled, but our hope for our campers is not diminished. Our desire to share Christ with our community and be His hands and feet to others has not ceased, and we pray that we can continue in the work set before us for His service and glory.
To all our old family and friends, as well as the newcomers to the Camp Ladore community: thank you for your continued support and prayers for the ministry of The Salvation Army at Camp Ladore. You have given us so much encouragement over the last few months through your emails and your stories on our Facebook page. We are so blessed to have you on our team!
Through it all, God has provided us with the blessing of this ministry opportunity. We look forward to serving you and your families again.
