At Ladore we believe many of life’s grandest rewards and experiences begin at 50!  Since 1975, The Salvation Army has been catering to the needs of Seniors via a getaway at Ladore.  Each year thousands of guests, age 50 and older, return to Ladore or visit for the first time.  Our program is often referred to as a “Cruise on Land”.  It’s a week’s vacation with the option for seniors to participate in the various scheduled programs and activities.

The Adult and Senior getaway is about the participants!  A wonderful time of fellowship and fun, it creates an atmosphere where seniors from all over can come together, get to know one another, make new friends and reconnect with old friends. Seniors who’ve attended often make this an annual event.

Each year the program department selects a theme for the summer – the 2021 theme is “Through the Decades”

“Through The Decades!” is our theme for 2021. Oh, the memories flood our minds when we think of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s: Sock Hops, Rock & Roll, Tie-Dye Shirts, the Golden Era of Television, Drive-In Theater, A&W Root Beer and Car Hops, and so much more. We sure had fun!
