Eagle Crest Camp
A week at The Salvation Army's Eagle Crest Camp can often be a life-changing event.
We offer summer camping opportunities for all ages, from Women’s camp in May through our Service Extension camp in July. Eagle Crest Camp offers 297 beautiful acres for all to enjoy, including crafts, arts, physical activities, games, swimming and Bible Study.

Low and High Ropes Challenge Course
Our new high ropes challenge course has been built, inspected, and commissioned.
Lower Level Elements are approximately 21 feet in the air and the higher level elements are approximately 33 feet up in the air. There are a total of 21 traversing elements with a cargo net entry and a zip line exit.
If you would like to schedule a time for your group to use the course, please contact Luke Hardy.
We will offer the course to groups in 2-hour blocks of time.
Non-Army Groups will be charged $18 per person per 2-hour session for groups of 10-30 participants. The course can be opened to groups of 5-9 people but the cost will be $25 per participants. If groups of 5-9 participants agree to use the lower level only, then the rate can remain the same for fewer participants. It takes 5 instructors to run the course when both levels are being used but only 3 are needed when only the lower level is being used.
Members of The Salvation Army Heartland Division will be given a 40% discount on those costs...so $10.80 per person per 2-hour session for groups of 10-30 participants and $15 per person per 2-hour session for groups of 5-9 participants.
Salvation Army groups that are from outside the Heartland Division will be given a 10% discount on the regular rates....so $16.20 per person per 2-hour session for groups of 10-30 participants and $22.50 per person per 2-hour session for groups of 5-9 participants.
During Heartland Division Events at camp, the course will be available at no extra cost as part of the event registration costs.
The course will be open from Spring-Fall subject to weather and temperatures.
Those who weigh between 45-265 lbs are able to participate. There is also a minimum height restriction of 48" (4'). Participants need to be in reasonably good health.
