The Salvation Army is dedicated to touching the lives of our youth. One of the ways we accomplish this is through the summer camps. Each summer we have children and teenagers from all walks of life come and experience God at High Peak Camp. At camp, we offer many daily activities for each child?s interests. The daily activity rotation includes:
- Climbing Wall
- Frisbee Golf
- Miniature Golf
- BB Shooting Range
- Low ropes course
- Zip line
- Camp-wide activities
- Outdoor Education
- Arts and crafts
And much more.
Cabin Activity Time
During this time a cabin may decide to go fishing, go on a hike, do archery, play sports, do a craft, practice a skit, and etc. This is a great chance for cabin-mates to get acquainted as they have discussion, choose an event and participate together in it.
Campfires are perhaps one of the most memorable parts of summer camping. During a Campfire the campers sing songs, participate in skits, watch (and frequently participate in) dramatic presentations with strong moral lessons, and listen to stories together. Some other events that happen at Campfires include; Cabin and Individual Challenges, Theme Nights (Game Show night, Movie night, etc.), and a Devotion.
The devotion time can be interactive (questions or games), it is sometimes Christian videos, stories, and more. Devotions are themed and geared toward the ages of the campers in the cabin. Older campers may learn how to deal with tough issues, while younger campers will probably have stories about Bible heroes and miracles.

Rocky Mountain Youth Camps
Rocky Mountain Youth Camps are the staple camps at High Peak Camp, offering a host of exciting activities and electives for the campers to enjoy. Rocky Mountain Youth Camps sessions last five days, beginning on Mondays and ending on Saturdays. Campers in this program range in age from 7 to 12 and are split up into older and younger units. The Campers spend their days continuously engaged in activities like canoeing, swimming, ropes course and climbing the rock wall. Every day we host chapel sessions that proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and give our campers the opportunity to learn more about who God is.

Salvation Army Youth (SAY) Camp
SAY camp is our one week camp specifically for those youth who attend various Salvation Army programs. Many of our SAY Campers either attend a Salvation Army Corps, or are members of a Salvation Army Youth Group. During the week the youth have the opportunity to grow in their faith, learn more about God, and develop new friendships. They will also have a fun, exciting week experiencing new activities and God in a new way. This camp runs along the same schedule as the Rocky Mountain Youth Camps, but in place of electives the campers have a chance to earn emblems.

Music & Worship Arts Camp
The Salvation Army?s music ministry teaches children how to read music and play brass instruments, while emphasizing the importance of God?s love and learning to use musical talent as part of Christian life. Whether it?s playing in a Salvation Army band on Sunday morning, or volunteering to play your trombone outside a Salvation Army kettle at Christmas time, The Salvation Army music ministries combine musical and spiritual excellence.
This eight-day camp provides everything from basic music instruction for beginners to advanced skill building for more experienced singers and players. In addition, students learn theory, vocal, instrumental, drama and related skills. As with local music groups, Music Camp also provides an extended opportunity for spiritual and social growth.
July 6 - 15 - Music Camp
Wilderness Camp is for any teen who wants to experience an exciting outdoor camping week that involves hiking, cooking outdoors, rock climbing, and sleeping in tents. During this excited five-night program, camp will also focus on spiritual growth, developing teamwork skills, and appreciation of the outdoor environment. At least two of the five nights will be involving low impact outdoor camping in sleeping bags and tents. Due to the high energy level of this camp program, we encourage parents to discuss with their teens the potential physically strenuous activities that will take place. Camp Staff will constantly watch for any medical or heath concerns and will not require any camper to do something that would be harmful for them.
