Salvation Army Offers ‘JUMP’ Day Camp for Kids

The Salvation Army Chicago Midway Corps Community Center
has opened registration for a new, low-cost, faith-based day camp option for local children.

The Salvation Army JUMP camp will offer children the chance to engage in a well-rounded curriculum with their peers, while offering parents a respite and low-cost childcare option. The JUMP camp will include:

• Jesus-centered curriculum 
• Understanding the world through STEM activities 
• Music integration 
• Physical activity

“We want to extend the offer to have activities in a safe
environment that stimulates the minds of youth, and inspires teamwork and good health,” said Lt. Dalvius King-Harvy, Corps Officer for The Salvation Army Chicago Midway Corps. “We are including meals and snacks, and a full-time schedule of activities to remove some of the burden from parents who have struggled working while their children were at home due to COVID.”

Two 4-week sessions will be offered at The Salvation Army Midway Corps, 5036-52 W. 47th Street. 

The first session will run from June 28 to July 22. The second session will be offered from July 26 to Aug. 20. Camp will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

The Salvation Army JUMP camp is open to students in grades 1 through 6. Each session will have 30 slots available, but cohorts within the camp will be limited to 10 children each. All public health guidelines will be followed.

Registration for JUMP camp is now open. Parents can sign up by calling Lt. Dalvius King-Harvy at The Salvation Army Chicago Midway Corps at (773) 838-8005. The cost is $20 per week per child.
