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.

Pontoon Boat Ride

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 2023 theme is “The Great Outdoors”.

We have guests that come to Ladore year after year; they just want “S’more” of Ladore. “S’more” fun, “S’more” new and old friends, “S’more” fresh air and fresh memories. The 2023 theme of “The Great Outdoors, getting S’more of Ladore” captures the spirit of the great outdoors with all of the modern comforts Ladore has to offer. 

In recent years, we have installed new beds and USB-port lamps, new ADA-height room toilets, new indoor and outdoor group games. 2023 will bring its own surprises and fresh ideas. 

The program department at Ladore will have available daily theme games, guided tours and walking trails, pontoon boat rides, music and crafts, indoor swimming pool and hot tub, game rooms, theme movies, and more. You will go from one activity to another, or you can take a nap.

Outside on the Grand Patio, you will find bocce, shuffleboard, corn hole, pickle ball, horseshoes, and a handicapped accessible miniature golf course. Some of the best fishing in the area awaits you along with a spectacular view of the 265 acres of our own Lake Ladore.

The chefs will prepare delicious meals. Chaplains offer inspiring devotions. Entertainers will wow the crowd! Guest Services have big hearts and are looking forward to welcoming everyone back to get “S’more” of Ladore!

Join us for “The Great Outdoors, getting S’more of Ladore” for an unforgettable adventure powered by God’s love. Our mission is to impact lives for Jesus Christ by providing superior hospitality, programs, and educational opportunities resulting in spiritual growth for all ages.
