Transportation is provided to Camp NEOSA on Monday through Friday, June 20-24. Camp NEOSA is located on a 200-acre peninsula on 1,000-acre Leesville Lake in Carrolton, Ohio. 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.
Camp NEOSA is one of the many programs offered by the Port Clinton Service Center. They are made possible by funding through local contributions from residents, businesses and grants provided by The Ottawa County Community Foundation, Stensen Grant, Portage Resale Grant, Greater Toledo Community Foundation and Walmart Community Grant.
“Due to this generous funding, we are able to offer a week-long camp experience to 31 applicants this year,” said Maureen Saponari at The Salvation Army.
Registration will be on a first come, first served basis.
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.
