To register for a camp at the Salvation Army Gene Eppley camp, each child must submit an individual camper registration form. There are several pages included in this packet: camper information form, Summer Food Service Program form, medical form, ropes course permission form, and photo release form. All pages must be filled out and signed by a parent or guardian in order for the camper to be accepted for camp. Please contact Jessica Hays at 402-898-5923 or

Being a camp staff member at Gene Eppley Camp is an experience you will never forget! Whether you are a counselor, dining hall staff member or lifeguard, the work of camp is centered around Christ and His work in the lives of young people, and you! It is our desire to:                  

1. Know Him and be like Him - "To be conformed to the likeness of his Son" (Romans 8:29)

2. Love campers with His love - "May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you." (I Thessalonians 3:12)

3. Help every camper and staff member to be complete in Jesus Christ - "And we proclaim Him admonishing...teaching every man with all wisdom...that we may present man complete in Christ." (Colossians 1:28)
