All young people deserve the best start in life possible. Salvation Army youth programs work to support young people in learning new life skills, making friends, working in a team environment, and connecting with all areas of life - spiritual, social, educational, and recreation.
Character Building Programs
The Salvation Army's Character Building programs provide opportunities for young people to develop their character through exploring different activities, experiencing new things, and learning how to work together as a group. There are different groups for boys and girls, ages 5 to 18 years that meet on Tuesdays at 6:15 pm.
Instruction in brass instruments and Singing Company (our children's choir) are held on Tuesdays evenings. Qualified leaders give instruction in both of these areas. Brass musicians are also expected to practice at home. Both groups are eligible to attend Music Camp in the summer.
BOLD for Corps Cadets is a practical training that provides the individual an opportunity to discover and develop potential for effective leadership in The Salvation Army as a soldier (church member) or an officer (pastor). BOLD stands for: Bible Study, Our Heritage, Leadership and Discipleship. Corps Cadets meets once per month.
There is no better way to learn team work and friendly competition than through sports. Throughout the year, our STRIVE sports program offers basketball, soccer, and hockey programs.
Day Camp & Summer Camps
In the summer months The Salvation Army offers children a safe place to spend their time with caring leaders at both our Warren Summer Day Camp and our Salvation Army Echo Grove Camp.
