The Salvation Army Summer camp programs date back to the 1890s, with locations throughout the United States. In April of 1956, Camp Hoblitzelle in Midlothian, Texas was dedicated as a Salvation Army Camp home through a generous gift from the Hoblitzelle Foundation. Located approximately 40 miles south of the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, this camp is seated on 1,200 acres of scenic Texas pasture land. The Salvation Army Camp Hoblitzelle is a traditional summer camp program providing children the rich experience of camping in the context of a Christian community.
This large enclosed patio overlooks a fountain on the camp’s lake. No one wants to spend their time at camp suffering from sunburn or mosquito bites! Clear vinyl panels protect from inclement weather and mosquitoes, without spoiling the peaceful view. A sun shade helps to block harmful UV rays in the hot Texas summertime. The vinyl material we use for our enclosures is the toughest available; sturdy enough to stand up to everyday weather stresses all year around. The vinyl pieces are joined by a process known as RF welding, which actually strengthens the seams, rather than using stitching which will perforate and weaken the vinyl.
