At The Salvation Army we provide counseling and one-on-one teaching assistance to empower kids of every age. A critical piece of this is our ability to recognize what level of assistance is needed, which varies drastically depending on socioeconomic conditions.
For many kids, summer camp is the first time they will see the world outside of their neighborhood. Each year, we enable thousands of children from low-income families to enjoy fresh air, exercise and new friendships through our annual summer camp programs. This camping 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.
Healthy minds and healthy hearts are also vital for kids at every age. We provide safe activities that many times are either free or at a low cost to meet the needs of every community.
