Salvation Army: Youth Programs
Summer Day Camp: The Salvation Army’s Day camp is a 6-week program available during summer break where every day the campers are provided a nutritious breakfast and lunch, given the opportunity to be artists, cooks or athletes and given a chance to learn more about the Bible. The camp features many field trips, including horseback riding, trips to museums, Letchworth State Park and The Seneca Park Zoo creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Long Point Camp is a 138 acre summer sleep-away camp located on the western side of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York. Long Point Camp exists to be a place where youth may capture the joy of living, loving, and learning more about God, themselves, and others.
Project Bundle Up is a Salvation Army program that has been helping Rochester’s neediest children since 2001. Low-income, urban children participating in Project Bundle Up have a unique opportunity to receive new winter coats. It is also a community event where volunteers from many sectors can reach out to some of Rochester’s poorest children. Project Bundle Up gives these children the opportunity to shop and choose a new, warm winter coat at jcpenney stores.
Afterschool programs serve youth from all corners of Greater Rochester. Elementary students receive help with their homework, participate in clubs and enjoy indoor and outdoor recreation as well as arts and crafts.
