WAYMART, PA — The Salvation Army Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware Division received a $15,000 grant for 2023 from Aetna Better Health Kids, a CVS Health company.
The grant was used to support its summer camp programs at Camp Ladore. It provided health and wellness items and supported activities and fitness to benefit the children attending the camp.
Camp Ladore offers music, arts and sports programs during its summer camp sessions for children aged seven to 16. Campers can explore their interests and develop life skills and healthy forms of emotional expression.
“Camp Ladore is blessed for Aetna‘s generous gift and support of our organization and its mission,” said Captain Dave Kelly, the director at Camp Ladore. “With this funding, we will ensure that Camp Ladore’s programs continue to offer a healthy and safe environment for campers to address their spiritual, educational, social and recreational needs.”
Camp Ladore is owned and operated by the Salvation Army. It is located on 1,200 acres surrounding a 265-acre lake.
