Directors' word

Camp Ladore has provided new adventures, learning experiences and lasting friendships to the children of Pennsylvania and Delaware for 50 summers. We have seen countless lives changed and magnificent memories made. One thing remains the same: children need hope. Campers need to be protected in a safe environment. They need to trust in caring staff who look after them. Children need a love that perseveres and believes in Jesus Christ as our one true hope.

Camp Ladore is a place to make lifelong friendships, learn new skills, and develop as a person.

Camp Ladore is a safe haven from the outside world. To potential employees I would say it is a chance to serve and disciple the up and coming youth.

Quality Staff Needed

Camp Ladore needs a staff that loves children and has a desire to share Christ’s love with others.
Camp Ladore is a Christian camp operated by The Salvation Army. Our ministry is to children ages 6-12 from Pennsylvania and Delaware. Ladore provides a low cost opportunity for children who would otherwise not be able to attend summer camp. They can have an unforgettable week in a safe environment. Our goal is to have each camper see Christ’s love in action and to experience activities they cannot do where they live.

Working at Camp Ladore will make a lasting impression on your life! You will laugh, cry, get tired, sing songs, tell stories, give hugs, develop life long friendships and make lasting impressions on campers’ life. Each day is packed with exciting activities for the campers to enjoy. Activities vary from nature, arts & crafts, athletics, pioneering, ropes course, swimming and boating.

These are high energy programs, often themed events, filled with songs, skits, athletics, arts & crafts and fun!

The campers day starts with devotions and ends with devotions in their cabin groups. All staff are expected to set an example and actively participate in the planned activities.
