On June 25, forty two children from Ottawa County got up early, loaded up a chartered bus filled with snacks and movies, and headed to Camp NEOSA in Carrollton, Ohio, for 5 days filled with swimming, canoeing, hiking, outside sport activities, singing, role-playing, arts and crafts and lots of fun.
Camp NEOSA (Northeast Ohio Salvation Army) is one of the many programs offered by The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit. Camp NEOSA provides an atmosphere where campers learn skills in developing their physical, social and spiritual needs. To assist in the development skills of each camper, the camp is aimed at helping to learn good health habits, provides an opportunity to contribute to and receive from a group living experience, and participate in activities that stimulate creativity and foster independence. The Port Clinton Service Unit has provided this opportunity to approximately 35-45 campers each year for the past seventeen years.
Currently, we are taking applications for our Tools for School program and need bell ringers for our Christmas in July Campaign July 25-27.
If interested in finding out more information on programs offered by the local office, call Maureen Saponari at (419) 732-ARMY (2769) or stop in at 1854 E. Perry Street – Suite # 800, Port Clinton.
