We have worked for years to offer a safe and structured environment for children that is fun and productive. It is great when others can see the value of having their children involved. Our goal is to promote holistic healthy living by teaching the children about God and His love for us; the Biblical principles of living right as modeled to us by Jesus: loving and respecting ourselves, while loving, respecting and serving others; caring for our bodies by: eating healthy, getting proper rest and exercise.

Corps Cadets & Jr. Soldiers
One Saturday a month at the Green Bay Salvation Army Kroc Center www.gbkroccenter.org
Junior Soldiers is a discipleship program for children ages 7 through 14. Children who become junior soldiers are members of the corps. Classes usually run from September–May and teach children about the Bible, the life and example of Jesus Christ, the history and doctrine of The Salvation Army, and how to live a Christian life.
CROSSTraining for Corps Cadets is a five-year discipleship and leadership development program open to young people in 7th grade (or 13 years old) through 12th grade. Corps Cadets participate in Bible study, activities to develop their spiritual lives, ministry leadership training, and hands-on service projects. CROSSTraining for Corps Cadets meets from September through June. The goal of CROSSTraining for Corps Cadets is to prepare spiritually mature, committed leaders in the corps and develop potential for effective leadership in The Salvation Army as a soldier or an officer.
Prayer & Praise
One Friday a month we travel to one of the other Salvation Army Corps (churches) to have a time of fellowship and worship with other teens and young adults in the Wisconsin Upper Michigan Division (WUM). This is a great time to catch up with friends made at Army Lake Camp and other divisional events.
Throughout the year we participate in activities to raise money. The money raised helps subsidize the cost of summer camps, trips and activities. We encourage teens and families to participate in order to decrease the amount they have to pay for each activity.
