Dear Parents/Guardians: We’re excited that you are considering sending your child to beautiful Camp Keystone! The Salvation Army operates a residential camp each summer for children throughout the State of Florida. Camp Keystone is located in Starke, Florida, about 30 minutes outside of Gainesville, Florida. While at our camp, your child will participate in swimming, horseback riding, hiking and other outdoor activities. Because The Salvation Army is a Christian organization, Bible Classes and Worship Services are also included as part of the camping experience.

This Parent’s Guide is intended to make your child’s camp experience as enjoyable as possible by providing you with useful information all in one place. In order to provide your child with the safest and most engaging experience possible, we are constantly updating and improving our policies. Even if your child has attended Camp Keystone in the past, please read through this entire manual, as it contains new information and policies.

If you have any questions or concerns, please be in contact with The Salvation Army representative from whom you obtained this packet of information.

We look forward to having a GREAT summer with your child.

Captains Jonathan and Anita Howell
Divisional Youth Secretaries
