All of our programs focus on Biblical and Spiritual enhancement of the family structure. Our aim is to nurture the families that come through our doors and provide an atmosphere of love and acceptance for you and your children. Our goal is to share the love of God through Jesus Christ in all that we do. We invite you and your children to join us for any and all of the programs offered here at The Salvation Army of Monroe.

The Salvation Army now offers a safe and friendly environment for your children to enjoy after school games of pool, foosball, ping pong, air hockey, and board games.

Echo Grove Camp
Echo Grove is a great place to meet God in His great outdoors. Through relaxation, adventure and rich fellowship, we endeavor to bring all campers closer to Him.
For nearly 100 years, thousands of children from low-income families have enjoyed fresh air, exercise and the chance to make new friendships during the annual summer camp program at Echo Grove. The camping experience is more than just a pleasant vacation. Children learn new skills and self-reliance; trained counselors who understand their emotional needs and problems help them to mature. A few weeks at Echo Grove can mean a lifetime of impact for a kid who needs to be lifted up and encouraged.
While at Echo Grove, campers participate in a wide range of activities, including swimming instruction, Adventure Corps and Scouting, arts and crafts, music instruction, Christian education and much more.
