Youth Programs

Our youth need a safe, fun place to feel at home, and the Spokane Salvation Army Citadel Corps provides this and much more.  Scouting programs, music lessons, junior band, day camp, overnight camp, dance and excursions.  The Spokane Citadel Corps is a home away from home for youth looking for a place to belong.  Here, we are always interested in providing the best level of service by creating an atmosphere of love and care.

Here is a list of activities for young people...

Tuesday's @ 5:30 pm

Beginner & Junior Band is made up of brass instruments for children, ages 6-18.  This band is for children who are at beginner and intermediate level, and prepares them to play at a higher level.  This also gives them the chance to play with other young musicians.

Singing Company is a junior chorus of the church for boys and girls, grades 4-8.  They sing in Sunday services and at special events at the Spokane Citadel Corps.

Tuesdays @ 7 pm

Moonbeams are members of a national character-building program sponsored by The Salvation Army for boys and girls in grades, Preschool through Kindergarten. The children will meet friends and have fun learning about Jesus as they earn a variety of emblems such as Colors, Manners, Space and many more.

Sunbeams is a character-building program sponsored by The Salvation Army.  Sunbeams is open to girls, grades 1-5, and focuses on helping girls learn about themselves and their world.  They do this through programs centered around education, fellowship, service and worship.  These girls earn a variety of emblems that they display on a sash.

Girl Guards is for girls, grades 6-12.  The Guarding program opens the door to many exciting and new experiences.  With each experience, the girls are encouraged to discover things about themselves and the world God has created.  Girl Guards meet together as a troop to earn a variety of emblems that they wear on a sash, such as: learning new skills, hiking, singing, camping, swimming, making handicrafts, meeting new friends, going on trips and serving the people in the community.

Adventure Corps is designed for boys, grades 1-8.  It is divided into two sections: Explorers for boys, grades 1-4, and Rangers for boys, grades 5-8.  Each section takes members through a series of achievement emblems and levels, helping boys to develop their individuality and potential through:

  • Gaining a sense of personal identity and character through interaction with other boys and leaders.
  • Learning the importance of Christian values and biblical truths by experiencing God's Word and by the modeled example of their Christian  leaders.
  • Developing physical, mental and social skills as challenged by the Adventure Corps program.
  • Providing a balanced environment for learning, developing and caring that is child oriented and Christ centered.

Fridays @ 6 pm

Young People's League (YPL) is a youth group for middle and high school students, grades 7-12.  It allows young people to come together and fellowship in a safe environment.  During YPL, we allow for free time when children can play basketball, volleyball, board games or just sit around and chat.  After free time, we have a planned activity and a short devotional.  On occasion, we also have planned outings.  

Sundays @ 10 am

Corps Cadets is one of the most vital programs in The Salvation Army because its goal is the preparation of spiritually mature, committed, servant-leaders.  Members are literally cadets in the corps, learning to become the leaders of tomorrow.  Corps Cadet membership is for young people at least 12 years old and in the 6th grade, actively part of the weekly Corps programs, and enrolled as a Junior or Senior Soldier.

Annually

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a week long, fun-filled program we offer during the summer to connect with the children and families within our community.  Vacation Bible School is for children, ages 7-12.  VBS allows children to enjoy crafts, bible lessons, games and songs while learning important lessons for life.  VBS is a fun time where kids are able to be kids while learning more about God.
