Big thanks to Vancouver Island Charity Riders!  Because of your donation, The Salvation Army is able to send two Victoria area kids to Camp Sunrise!  In addition, through many other generous donations, another 36 Victoria area kids are able to enjoy camp this summer too.

The Stan Hagen Centre for families is thrilled that they are able to provide 38 local kids with an exciting and stimulating camping experience on the Sunshine Coast.

While enjoying many opportunities for fun and activities at camp, campers will also have ample opportunities to develop many new skills.  Their abilities, confidence and self-esteem grow while their health, spiritual, social and recreation needs are looked after by camp counsellors and leaders.

Campers come to The Salvation Army camps from a variety of social and financial backgrounds, in some cases this is the only vacation they will get, summer camps create many unforgettable memories, and many summer smiles.
