The Salvation Army Adventure Corps is a program for boys ages six through fourteen. Adventure Corps participants are encouraged to get out, explore the world around them and discover ways of serving God and others.

The Adventure Corps Leader is responsible to lead participants in their weekly program consisting of recreation, badge achievements, and spiritual aims. The Adventure Corps Leader is responsible for the recording all attendance and reports and for the general leadership of the program.


The underlying desire and purpose of the Adventure Corps Leader is to help young men develop into fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ as well as functional and productive members of The Salvation Army and society.
