Little Pine Island Youth Camp

The Little Pine Island Youth Camp Experience

Camping at Little Pine Island focuses on having fun in God’s creation and teaching practical skills that many kids have not had the opportunity to learn. Drawn primarily from Salvation Army Community Centers, camper’s physical, social and spiritual needs are met in a way they will take with them long after camp is done.

As an extension of character building programs in local communities, these camps encourage kids to earn emblems in various activities such as physical fitness, ecology, nature, aquatics and safety skills classes that meet every day needs.

Whether an expert or beginner, campers find the experience of being in a choir or band to be fun and educational. Participating in drama and contemporary worship planning helps create tomorrow’s leaders of today’s youth.

As the joy and diversity of the elderly enrich our camp, staff find working closely with seniors adds to the experience and excitement of working at Little Pine Island Camp in a unique and unexpected way.

A testimony of how Little Pine Island Camp made an impact in one young girls life

Here is how Little Pine Island and a camp counselor touched the heart of one young girl and how that week changed her life forever.

A letter to the Major -

Dear Major John Mowers,

“Over 50 years ago, when I was a young girl, I attended The Salvation Army church here in Kalamazoo.  I was given an opportunity to attend summer camp  I had never been to camp before; I had never even been on a vacation before.

I don’t remember the exact location of the camp, but it was near Grand Rapids.  I do remember that I had the most wonderful time meeting new friends, swimming, bible study and worship service.  I also received the most valuable gift of my life – my salvation. A young woman, who was a camp counselor, led me to the Lord.  It chaned my life and I am so grateful to The Salvation Army and the mercy of our Lord.

I feel privileded to help in the good work that The Salvation Army is doing.”
