The Salvation Army provides a variety of programs for youth in need in our community.
Fifty-seven percent of children between 6 and 17 years old participate in at least one after-school extracurricular activity.
Children were more likely to participate in sports (35%) than clubs or lessons like music, dance and language.
Our first priority is to meet basic human needs, but we recognize the importance of programs that go beyond the basics of food, shelter, clothing and safety. In addition to meeting basic needs, The Salvation Army strives to provide programs that will help children thrive during crucial developmental years from after school programs and summer camps, to childcare and toys at Christmas.
After School Program
The purpose of the afterschool program is to give children a safe environment to grow and develop mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Our after school program runs August through May 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM.
Summer Day Camp
This program engages elementary school age children in a fun packed curriculum, including crafts, music, skits, puppets, games, bible lessons, field trips, swimming and community service. Several of the weeks during the summer are dedicated to Vacation Bible School.
Summer Day Camp takes place in June & July from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
Troops & Character Development Programs
The Salvation Army's character-building troop programs offered for youth vary from community to community, but all are Biblically based and led by trained volunteers. The Salvation Army's goal is to give young people a safe community in which to grow and prosper.
These programs take place every Wednesday afternoon @ 4:00 PM.
