Since 1890, armed with tambourines and a mission to serve, The Salvation Army held its first meeting in Delaware. More than 200 voices were lifted in song and prayer in the second story of 220 Market Street. Although our location has changed, the mission of The Salvation Army in the State of Delaware remains as it began 125 years ago. The work and ministry will continue to grow providing human outreach by offering spiritual, emotional and assistance to people in need. Check out the article from delaware online celebrating our 125th anniversary!

Gearing up for Camp Ladore
This summer, over 100 Delaware young people will be attending The Salvation Army Camp Ladore in the Poconos. At Camp Ladore, there are many activities to choose from, including Archery, Boating, Challenge Course, Pioneering, Hiking, Nature, Arts & Crafts, Athletics, and Swimming. Also, during some of our specialty Salvation Army Music and Arts camps, we have Drama, Choreodramas, Dance, Singing, Timbrels, and Brass Bands. These activities help campers learn something new, accept a new challenge, explore the world God created, and help them grow in their interactions with others. We also incorporate Christian education into each one of our activities as the foundation to the child's time at camp.
Camp is a place where kids can Have Fun, Be Safe and Encounter God!
