More than 100 San Francisco kids will be heading to the Santa Cruz mountains today for summer camp, thanks to the Salvation Army, organizers said.

The children will be bused to the Salvation Army’s Camp Redwood Glen in Scotts Valley for five days of outdoor fun after today’s 13th Annual Camp Send-Off event, organizers said.

Children between the ages of 7 and 16 will attend the camp, many of whom have never been outside of the city, organizers said.

Campers from low-income families pay only $25 for the camp, a fraction of the normal price. The extra costs are subsidized by donations, organizers said.
