Salvation Army sends 110 San Francisco kids to camp

SAN FRANCISCO

The Salvation Army held its 15th annual camp send-off event. For many children it's their first time attending camp. It's an exciting time for both the kids and their parents.

"I would image the parents are excited for a couple of reasons, right? But certainly for the reason that their kids get this great opportunity to be out in the open air, we have great facilities in Scotts Valley, Santa Cruz Mountains. The experience will really be the experience of a lifetime," said Salvation Army Maj. Rob Birks.

Donations help pay the majority of the camp's cost with parents paying just a $25 registration fee. It is quite a bargain for what could be a life-changing experience for a child.
