Hidden Falls Camps
The Salvation Army in Indiana has a camp nestled on 706 wooded acres near Bedford in southern Indiana. This camp provides youth and adults with overnight camping experience with a multitude of outdoor activities, team building skills, character building, life skills and spiritual enrichment.
It is estimated the cost for a week of camp at Hidden Falls is $375.00 per participant; however through the generous donations to The Salvation Army we are able to offer our campers a greatly reduced rate of $75.00. The fee must be paid no later than the day applications are due to the Fort Wayne Corps. Transportation to and from camp is provided by The Salvation Army.
Parents are asked to provide a McDonald’s gift card for their child to cover the cost of lunch on the way to and from camp. Dollar amount placed on the gift card is your discretion. We suggest $10.00.
In addition there is a snack shop at camp, so if you want to send spending money with your child for that purpose, you may do so.
Applications for Allen County residents must be sent to The Salvation Army Corps at 2901 North Clinton Street, Fort Wayne IN 46805. (Hidden Falls Camps is no longer able to process applications they receive at their location.)
