Why Camp Hidden Lake
Each spring, many children leave school and head out for a fun-filled summer of camps.
However, for many kids from income-limited homes, the possibility of going to summer camp is not an option. With the help of The Salvation Army and donors in the community, kids from across Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi are able to experience one or more summer camp programs at our 300-acre camp in Lexington, Mississippi.
Summer camp is much more than a vacation.
Camp Hidden Lake teaches kids new skills, healthy attitudes, and great values. It offers sports, music, Bible Study, arts and crafts, swimming, fishing, and other activities for school-aged youngsters in our community.
At Camp Hidden Lake, campers experience long, hot summer days, dips in the pool, star-filled nights, campfires, roasted marshmallows, pillow fights, cabin devotions, emblem work, seeing old friends, and making new ones.
We believe every child should get to experience summer camp—exploring nature, learning new skills, developing confidence and building life-long friendships in a fun and nurturing environment.
We provide that experience for campers and counselors every summer at The Salvation Army’s Camp Hidden Lake. Transformational relationships and shared experiences create hope and a drive to create a better future.
But we need your help. Camp Hidden Lake is funded through donations so we can make these opportunities available to all children.
