Give adventure to every kid you meet

The Salvation Army Outdoors

The Salvation Army Outdoors initiative provides opportunities for kids of all ages to learn new skills, explore creation, and experience exciting adventures. 


Information & Resources

The Salvation Army Outdoors initiative comes alive through Character Building, Community Center, Day Camp, and Summer Camp programs. Leaders are always thinking of new ideas, experiences, and materials that their youth will love. Science-based, conservation educational curricula like Growing Up Wild and Project Learning Tree provide hundreds of tried and tested ideas and activities that engage youth.

Equipping Leaders

New and seasoned leaders need to be encouraged and equipped. The Salvation Army Outdoors Field Training events are designed to introduce leaders to the initiative while providing practical training and skills, such as: Conservation Educational Curricula, Basic Archery Instructor, Camping, Basic Air Rifle Instructor, Pioneering, Geocaching, Fishing, Boating and more.

Engaging Friends 

The Salvation Army Outdoors initiative would not be possible without the help of vested partners and friends who share a love for God's creation. One of our strongest partners has been Safari Club International Foundation. They have come alongside The Salvation Army to help with funding, introductions to prospective partners, and hands-on training.

Other partners include: MI DNR, Pheasants Forever, Council for Environmental Education, US Forestry Service, Cabela's, Bass Pro Shop, and many more. One of our partners said, "If you need help, all you need to do is ask." If you would like to get involved with The Salvation Army Outdoors, please don't hesitate to contact us.

The Salvation Army has formed partnerships with The National Archery in Schools Program (NASP®) and Safari Club International (SCIF) to make recreational and competitive archery available to local corps and community centers.

Goal 

The Salvation Army Outdoors is a new way of thinking about:

Enhancing and expanding your existing Character Building, Community Center, Day Camp and Summer Camp programs with outdoor adventures.

Equipping leaders with new skills and tools.

Engaging friends to come alongside us to provide support, training, and funds for The Salvation Army Outdoors activities.
