About Camp Gifford

Camp Gifford is a Christian camp owned and operated by The Salvation Army in Spokane, Washington. Camp Gifford operates primarily as a Summer Youth Camp as well as offering Retreat and Conference facilities to rental groups.


We provide affordable residential summer camping experiences to more than 1,000 children every summer. Our goal is to provide a week of camp to those children who would not otherwise have an opportunity to attend a summer camp. Primarily, we serve low-income, foster, homeless, single-parent and minority children.

Additionally, Camp Gifford’s excellent facilities are available to rental groups throughout the year. You’ll find our location and available activities to be among the best in the area at a price that is sure to please. In addition, your rental helps Camp Gifford pay for the poorest of children in our area to attend summer camp.

We’d be happy to converse with you by e-mail, telephone, mail or live and in person if you have any questions or comments after looking through our site. Our business is helping people, and you’re one of them!
