The Salvation Army accepting applications for Camp NEOSA

The Salvation Army’s Camp NEOSA this year is June 25-30. The camp program is provided to the first 35 children ages 6-12 who register. Transportation is provided. 

Camp NEOSA is one of the many programs offered by the Port Clinton Service Center. This program is made possible by funding through local contributions from residents and businesses. Due to generous funding, they are able to offer a weeklong camp experience to thirty five applicants this year.  

At Camp NEOSA the camper will experience many activities that are geared towards assisting the development of their physical, social, and spiritual needs. To meet these needs, the camp is aimed at helping learn and develop good health habits in cleanliness, proper rest, balanced diet and exercise. Camp NEOSA also provides an opportunity for each camper to contribute to and receive from a group living experience, help with making their own decisions, participate in activities that stimulate creativity and experience an atmosphere that fosters independence.

Camp NEOSA is located on a 200-acre peninsula on 1,000-acre Leeville Lake in Carrolton, OH. The natural surroundings contribute to the spiritual, educational, social, and recreational needs of every camper and camp days are filled with hiking, swimming, canoeing, arts and crafts, sports and drama activities.  

Applications are available at The Salvation Army office in The Sutton Center.
