Adventure Corps

The Salvation Army Adventure Corps is a character-building program designed for boys in grades one through eight. Its purpose is to assist boys in developing their individuality and potential.

It has been proven that youth are less likely to participate in risky behaviors (drugs, alcohol, teen sex, violence, etc.) if they consistently take part in positive community programs. At the same time, good health and success in school increase when youth take part in community programs. Adventure Corps is a faith-based community program which focuses on the physical, mental, and spiritual growth needed in males today. Adventure Corps is an important aspect in Corps ministry that could provide a Corps with a strong young male church base.

Aim:

  • To aid in the growth of young men in regards to their physical, mental, and spiritual needs
  • To provide a safe, organized, faith-based program for young men
  • To bridge the community with Corps services
  • To encourage members to invite family members to other weekly programs and worship at the Corps
  • To remind young men that it is their duty to “give back” to the community through volunteering and service
