Our Programs     


Homework Assistance

At The Salvation Army Nampa Corps, we provide one-on-one teaching assistance to help kids of all ages with school work, study guidance, and literacy advancement through our Afterschool program.  Depending on the school they attend, we may even be able to pick them up after school!

For more information, or to sign your kids up for Fall 2018, please call Jennifer Hatch, Youth Center Director, at 208-467-6586. 

Sports, Clubs and Extracurricular Activities
Through a variety of no-fee and low-cost after-school programs, we provide safe ways for kids to make friends and participate in activities they couldn't otherwise afford.    

Every Thursday this Fall, we are offering open-gym basketball!  Stop in for a game anytime between 6 and 9 p.m.

Music Classes

The Salvation Army now offers guitar and piano lessons for kids at their Downtown Nampa location!  Sessions will be held once a week, with both beginner and intermediate levels available.  For more information, please visit our music classes page.

Kids Cooking Classes

Kids cooking classes are back!  Starting Tuesday, October 16th, The Salvation Army is offering a 9 week beginners cooking course.  There will be 8 weeks of cooking instruction, including recipe terminology, measuring, and basic skills.  A graduation dinner will be held the 9th week, in which students prepare a full dinner for their family and friends to showcase their new skills.  

To register your child, or to volunteer as an instructor, please call Megann at 208-467-6586 ext. 1210.

Troops Scouting Program
The Salvation Army has scouting groups for all ages, Moonbeams PreK-K, Sunbeams for girls 1st-5th grade, Girl Guards 6th grade and up, Adventure Corps for boys 1st grade and up.  The goal is to help youth develop positive social and communication skills, decision making skills and character and leadership skills. They will experience various subjects for which they can earn badges, in areas such as cooking, art, sports, safety, etc.  It's a place they can learn life skills and make life-long friends in a safe and loving environment.  Please call Nancy Halverson at 208-467-6586 ext. 3 for more information.  Groups are held on Wednesdays at 5:00 pm (except Summer break).  Click here to register. 

Teen Outreach Group
The Salvation Army provides the opportunity for teens 7th grade and up to develop their faith and have positive social interactions. Through the use of learning about God each week and participating in fun organized activities, they can make friends and develop into mature young adults. Meeting time is Fridays at 7:45 pm.  Please call Nancy Halverson at 208-467-6586 ext. 3 for more information!

Orange Sundays
We provide small groups for all ages on Sunday mornings to develop faith, support discipleship and encourage healthy relationships with God and others. Through engaging activities and Bible-based lessons, we learn more about God in a loving and fun atmosphere. Join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 am!
