Youth Programs

Our main charge is to ensure that all are met with understanding and love. At the core of all that we do, fighting for our youth is a primary driver to share God's grace. 

The Salvation Army is renowned for the holistic care approach incorporated into everything we do. Providing a safe place to play and a warm meal is just the start. We also provide character-building programs, summer camp, day camp, sports activities, after school programs, and mentorship. The youth of today will be equipped and empowered for life, tomorrow.

SUMMER CAMP 

For many kids, summer camp is the first time they will see the world outside of their neighborhood. Each year, Echo Grove Camp welcomes hundreds of children from low-income families to enjoy fresh air, exercise and new friendships through our annual summer program. This experience is more than just a few days away from home. Here, children learn new skills and self-reliance. Trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them mature and grow. Camp activities include learning to swim, scouting, arts and crafts, music development, and sports. For more information about our away camp experience or to register please give us a call starting in May.  248-477-1153
