How we help empower youth

YOUTH BASKETBALL PROGRAM 

We have a co-ed Youth Basketball League available for elementary school children each year. It is one of the most popular activities that takes place in our Community Center.

The league’s primary objective is to teach kids fundamental skills, good sportsmanship, and an attitude to always do their best. Small teams give the opportunity to learn these skills through half-court drills and full-court games. Team practices allow teaching time throughout the season without game time pressures.

Registration takes place in December. The season begins in January and runs through March.

SUMMER DAY CAMP

Our Summer Day Camp is offered every year for 10 weeks during the summer months. This program is for children in our community who are in 1st through 5th grade. Recreational and fun activities are planned all summer long both at The Salvation Army and off site. Our campers also visit Echo Grove each summer.

GIRL GUARDS
Girls Guards are for middle and high school girls. The Girl Guards program is focused on addressing their spiritual, physical, mental and social needs. Skill-development, personal growth and community service opportunities expand as girls learn to work together and independently in various environments. They are also encouraged to think seriously about career and life-style choices as they move into adulthood, based on what they've learned as a Girl Guard.
Girl Guard Aim: I understand that as a Girl Guard I will grow spiritually by increasing my knowledge of God through Bible study and prayer. I will grow mentally by being honest in my thoughts and actions and by developing the mind and talent God has given me. I will grow physically by protecting myself from all harmful substances and habits by developing a healthy body. I will grow socially by being respectful, friendly, of service to others and loyal to my country.
