Children & Youth Programs

Through our programs dedicated to children and youth, The Salvation Army is striving to change generations by giving children from poverty-stricken environments the chance to start life in a very different place than their parents may have.

After School

The Salvation Army is partnering with The Boys & Girls Club of Central Mississippi to provide After School Care in our Community Center. (BGCCM) to provide daily After School Care in our Community Center. BGCCM is well positioned to support and prepare youth success and excels at reaching youth who need the support the most. The first element, a safe, positive environment, sets the foundation for life-changing youth development work. The next key elements, fun and a sense of belonging, keep youth engaged. The last three elements – supportive relationships, opportunities and expectations, and recognition – help transform time spent at the Club into experiences that change young lives.

Camp Hidden Lake

For many disadvantaged kids, the possibility of having a fun at summer camp is not an option. With the help of donors in the community, we send kids to our summer camp near Lexington, Mississippi. The Salvation Army’s 300 acre Camp Hidden Lake helps disadvantaged boys and girls in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi open their eyes to a whole new world – THE NATURAL WORLD. Camp Hidden Lake teaches kids new skills, healthy attitudes, and great values and  offers sports, music, Bible Study, arts and crafts, swimming, fishing, and other activities for school aged youngsters in our community.
