Youth Character Building
The Salvation Army’s fun, safe and educational programs include Sunbeams for elementary girls, Girl Guards for young women, and Scoutreach for boys and young men. Rooted in the scouting tradition, The Salvation Army’s character building programs are biblically based with caring, trained leaders.
WEDNESDAYS @ 4:30pm
Sunbeams is a fun program for girls ages 6 to 11 and teaches them to help at home, study and respect nature, and help others. The program also helps them grow in mind and spirit.
Girl Guards is for girls from 6th grade through the senior year of high school and is designed to teach them skills, and help them address issues with social, mental, physical, and spiritual needs and also gives them the opportunity to help the world around them.
The group uses a format similar to the Boy Scouts: emblem earning, focus on working with others, providing service within the community, learning about other cultures, meeting new people, and building friendships. Younger Adventure Corps members (grades 1–5) are considered Explorers, whereas 6th–12th-grade boys are referred to as Rangers. However, whether Explorer or Ranger all Adventure Corps members have the opportunity to earn emblems in the areas of sports and athletics, health and safety, outdoor living, arts and crafts, bible and The Salvation Army, the world around us, science and technology, and family and culture.
