Community Youth Center Mission Statement
“To challenge youth physically, mentally, socially, emotionally and spiritually
in a fun, nurturing and safe environment.”
Our highest priority is that every child who walks through our door
will know they are loved and accepted here.
We currently have two available programs through our CYC. Our After School Program and our new Summer Care Program. Please read below for more information on each program.
After School Program
Hours of Operation and Eligibility
The Salvation Army Community Youth Center After School Program is for youth in elementary, middle school and high school. The center is open Monday – Friday from 3:00pm to 6:00pm when school is in session. (We follow Fort Wayne Community School schedule and closings.)
Character Building: Adventure Corps, Sunbeams, and Girl Guards are Christian character building programs focused on helping children learn about themselves and their world. They do this through participating in programs centered on education, fellowship, service and worship. Any girl or boy regardless of race, color or religion may become a member of the local troop. This is just one of the many things the kids can do while attending CYC.
Solid Rock Café
Free snacks are provided in our Café every day.

Summer Care Program
This year Wellsprings and Salvation Army are partnering up to better serve you and your children this summer. Wellsprings will still be offering Summer Day Camp from 9am – 1:30 pm, Monday – Friday June 6th through July 19th this summer at multiple locations, including the Salvation Army. In addition to their Summer Camp, The Salvation Army Community Youth Center (CYC) has offered to keep their location open, and have an After Summer Camp Care for those that are not able to pick their child/ children up at 1:30pm. The Salvation Army CYC will provide After Summer Day Camp Care from 1:30pm – 6:00pm on days that Summer Day Camp is in session. Transportation to the Salvation Army CYC from Summer Day camp locations will be provided as part of the service, but they will need to be picked up by a parents or guardian by 6:00pm from The Salvation Army each day.
ALL information regarding the Wellspring Camp can be found HERE!
