Knowledge is a ticket out of poverty.

We help lift children up by providing free character building scouting programs, day camps, summer drop-ins, musical instruction, gym access, and more.

The Salvation Army's Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Corps Community Centers provide a number of programs for children and young adults.

Each location provides free Character Building scouting programs for children in 1st through 12th grades during the school year. In the summer children can participate in Day Camp in Ann Arbor or Summer Drop-in at Ypsilanti. Some music instruction is also available as well as various other programs during the school year. Call for more information.

Give a kid a better chance. You can help.
