Junior Camp 2019-2020


Wow!  Can you believe it!  It’s our 35th Anniversary!

The American Legion Auxiliary’s first Junior Camp was held in 1985 and every year since junior members have registered and attended camp.  Life time friendships have been made and for many juniors a continued membership in the American Legion Auxiliary.   We have member’s children now attending camp or belong to the SAL.  Junior Camp builds a better understanding of our Country, Veterans and our Military and their families.

This year Junior Camp will be held August 9 – 14, 2020 at the Newton Christian Conference Center.  Registration will be Sunday evening from 6 to 7 p.m. and Friday, August 14, Department Junior Convention will end our week of camping.  Registration this year is $250.00.  At this printing the DEC had not met so cost has not been determined.  We will have a fundraiser this year to help defray the cost of camp. 

Junior Camp offers a week of presentations on our veterans, military, Americanism, crafts, recreation, swimming, working on junior patches, cookouts, smores, Flag disposal, a talent show and building self- esteem.  Please join us for our 35th Anniversary Party.  More information to follow.
