Registration for Camp Kroc is now closed for the summer. 
Thank you to the families who participated this year.


Welcome to Camp Kroc!

Camp Kroc is a ministry of The Salvation Army Dayton Kroc Center.  At the heart of the Camp Kroc philosophy is our focus on building authentic relationships caring adults and other children, but most importantly, with Jesus. Camp Kroc provides campers with unique day camp and community experiences that will help them to grow, learn, and have fun while fostering the values of sharing, integrity, responsibility, and respect. Our attitude and approach to everything we do at Camp Kroc creates a welcoming, supportive atmosphere in which campers can be themselves without fear of judgment and gain a greater sense of self-esteem and self-confidence.  We call it a child-centered program; the campers call it the best summer ever!
