The Kroc Center is comprised of five major components: a worship center, a performance and special events venue, an aquatics center, a fitness and recreation center, and an arts and education center. It offers a wide variety of programs for adults and youth, including sports, fitness, aquatics, arts and music, Bible study, after-school programs, and summer camps. The programs, as well as the building itself, have been designed to stimulate the mind, body and spirit; to provide hope; and to transform the life of each and every person who visits. Learn more.
After-school programs benefit both children and parents, allowing kids access to homework help, literacy-building, tutoring and connection with their peers. Parents are able to enjoy peace of mind at their jobs, knowing their children are safe and well cared for after school is dismissed.
Day camps and overnight summer camps offer an appealing array of fun activities for every child in pre-K through 12th grade. Fishing, hiking, camping, swimming, boating and archery encourage kids to stay physically active while exploring God's world. Educational activities like art and music keep their minds engaged. A number of specialized opportunities like Sports Camp and Music Camp are also available.

Research shows that one-third to one-half of children who are poor for a substantial part of their childhood will be poor as adults. Our Pathway of Hope program is specifically aimed at breaking this cycle of intergenerational poverty by offering a strengths-based casework approach to families with children 18 years of age and younger. Services offered include financial counseling and planning, job training and referrals, assistance with housing, and spiritual support. Pathway of Hope works with people where they are, offering practical guidance to help families achieve their big-picture goals, one step at a time.
