The Salvation Army’s Three Trails Camp & Retreat Center is a fresh air camp which was established in 1924 by The Salvation Army. Three Trails shares in the long history of Salvation Army camping, providing a safe environment for campers to escape from everyday activities to have fun, learn new skills, and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.
Some of our local youth loaded onto an Arrow State Line bus from Tarkio on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 and headed to the Kansas City, Missouri camp.
The primary purpose of Three Trails has been serving children from Kansas and Western Missouri during the summer months, through their residential camping program. In over ninety years of operation, tens of thousands of children have been given the opportunity to come to Three Trails. As an outgrowth of this tradition, they have developed a wonderful retreat center to help support their mission.
Located only a few miles outside of downtown Kansas City, Three Trails is a 40-acre campus that is an oasis in the city. Three Trails combines spacious accommodations with the beauty and serenity of nature to offer an affordable experience for their guests facilitating a church retreat, conference and business meeting, spiritual retreat or team building adventure. They offer guests clean facilities that are well maintained and excellent service. They are committed to serving the needs of their guests.
With a location that is close to home, accommodations that are up-to-date and flexible, and a focus on the guests’ experience, Three Trails is the retreat destination of choice for hundreds of groups each year.
