CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Salvation Army says Camp Happy Valley in Putnam County will be closed this summer because there's no money for needed repairs.
The 167-acre camp in Teays Valley normally serves about 120 children during each weeklong session.
Salvation Army Maj. Owen Gilliam tells the Charleston Gazette that the organization has lacked funding for maintenance for several years because of the economy and a drop in donations.
He says the camp needs $80,000 to repair storm damage, leaks in gas lines and other problems.
The organization's board hopes to open the camp next summer.
