Empowering Youth Through Vibrant Ministry

Let the children come to Me and don't hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to them. - Jesus

Our children are the future.

We're here to help them learn to love God and others

Adventure Corps

The Salvation Army Adventure Corps is a Christian education program designed for boys Grades 1-12. It is divided into two sections: Explorers for boys in grades 1-5 and Rangers for boys in Grades 6-12. Each section takes members through a series of achievement awards and levels, helping boys to develop their individuality and potential.

Girl Guards

Guarding opens the door to adventure. As a Girl Guard, you will find many exciting new experiences awaiting you. With each experience, you will discover things about yourself and the world God has created. Girl Guards is open to all girls in grades 6-12.

You will belong to a large family with thousands of members in every part of the United States and in many other the countries where The Salvation Army is located. Girl Guards is one of many youth groups sponsored by your local Salvation Army corps. Girl Guard meetings may be held at the corps center, at community buildings, or schools.


Moonbeams are members of a national character-building program sponsored by The Salvation Army for boys and girls in grades Preschool (age 4) through Kindergarten.

Moonbeams should try to help others whenever possible, even before being asked. Moonbeams are encouraged to attend Sunday school or church every week. If not a member of a Sunday school, the Moonbeams are invited to attend at The Salvation Army. There they’ll meet friends and have fun learning about Jesus.


The Guarding Program is sponsored by The Salvation Army. It includes girls in grades 1 through 12, divided into two groups: Sunbeams (grades 1-5) and Girl Guards (grades 6-12).

If you do not have a Sunbeam program in your local Salvation Army, you may join Girl Guards in grade 5. If you do not have a Girl Guard program, you may remain a Sunbeam through grade 6.

All Sunbeams are members of the Guarding Program. Any girl may join the program.


Children who have completed 1st grade through 12th grade (age 17) have the opportunity to travel to Little Pine Island to experience a week at camp. Camping at Little Pine Island focuses on having fun in God’s creation and teaching practical skills that many kids have not had the opportunity to learn. Camper’s physical, social and spiritual needs are met in a way they will take with them long after camp is done.
Camp Applications become available in May. 

The Salvation army Kurt Janowsky Summer Culinary Camp

For the past 2 summers, over 10 students have had the opportunity to engage in sharpening their culinary skills during our camp. This 2-3 week camp takes place in different parts of Michiana to give students a broad perspective on food and the field in general. Healthy eating options, food safety, meal planning, and proper technique are all covered topics during the sessions. From field trips to special instruction from certified chefs, culinary students will enhance their cooking skills as well engage in dedicated Bible time. Applications for this program begin in April.
