Salvation Army selling camp, conference center


Staff report



In order to invest greater resources to direct service and less on property upkeep, The Salvation Army has decided to sell its large property located at 340 Lake St., Delaware, commonly known as Greenwood Lake Camp and Conference Center.

The Salvation Army maintains its commitment to serving those in need in Delaware County. The agency is exploring facilities in the county that will be much more cost effective and better suited for their programs which include the Delaware Worship and Service Center, Choice Food Pantry, Direct Housing Program, and Anti-Human Trafficking Program, a news release states.

“The Salvation Army is committed to its mission of serving suffering humankind in the Name of Jesus without discrimination,” shared Debra Ashcraft, Area Coordinator for The Salvation Army. “Program function and financial resources by which we meet the needs of others are regularly examined to ensure optimal effectiveness.”

Greenwood Lake Camp has a long, rich history of serving children. Due to decreased demand and lack of financial resources, there have been no residential camp-related programs held at the camp for over a decade. Children who seek a residential camping experience have been attending Camp SWONEKY, located in Oregonia, Ohio, which is operated by The Salvation Army regional headquarters.

Inquiries on the property may be directed to The Robert Weiler Company. For information contact Skip Weiler at 614-221-4286, ext 102.
