What is the Fall Youth Retreat?
Prairie teenagers and young adults will be converging at Beaver Creek Camp, SK for an amazing weekend of worship, fellowship and fun from October 13-15, 2017 for “FUSE 2017 – Disturb The Present”. The guest speakers for the weekend are Captain Bethany Dueck, who is the Associate Corps Officer (Pastor) at Heritage Park Temple in Winnipeg, MB and her husband Cadet Brian who is presently studying at The College For Officer Training in his second year. The very talented Dion Durdle from Halifax, Nova Scotia will be leading worship for the whole weekend. There will be crazy activities and of course there will also be lots of giveaways and amazing food! 
We hope to see YOU there!
NOTE: This event is for those ages 13-30 (Must be in Grade 7). The cost for the weekend is $130.00. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you fill out the application and get it back to the youth leader (Jenny) or Corps Officer (Pastors Peter or Lee-Ann) by October 6!
Leadership In Training Program
Occuring in connection to our Summer KidsQuest Day Camps, this Program encourages youth to develop leadership skills. Youth can apply to become LITs in one or more of our weeks of summer camp.  Through this program, youth are encouraged in their leadership development through hands on opportunities, learning from reflecting, teaching, special guests and shadowing. They are also encouraged to be intentional in their learning by developing their own learning goals.
Opportunities can range from leading programs to being more behind the scenes.  Applications come out in April of each year. It’s a great opportunity to make friends, learn leadership skills, and to help campers have a SPECIAL summer! 
Please note: Youth must have completed Grade 7 before they can apply to be an LIT.
Applications can be found here in March 2018!the_salvation_army-svg

1.  Does it cost money?
Answer:  Most of our youth programs are free.  If there is a cost to a specific event (e.g. going to the Corn Maze), we do collect money for that.
2.  What are the ages for the Programs?
Answer: For the most part, our events/programs are for students in Grades 7-12.  However, there may be specific programs or events that are geared towards a certain age, e.g. Growing Deeper series is for Grades 11/12.  For our Bible studies, students in Grade 9 can choose to attend either the Sr. High or Jr. High group or both! 
3.  What if I need a ride?
Answer:  If transportation to our programs is needed, please e-mail Jenny at and we’ll try to figure it out together.  If we go for an outing (e.g. serve at Winnipeg Harvest), rides are usually provided from the church.
4.  Who are the volunteers?
Answer:  We have a number of dedicated volunteers who support the youth whether helping lead events, driving, teaching, hosting us in their homes and baking for our snacks!  All of our volunteers must go through the following screening to work with our youth:
– Criminal Record Check
– Child Abuse Registry Check
– Application to Work with Children and Youth
– Code of conduct
– Armatus Abuse Prevention Training
– Review The Salvation Army’s Abuse Prevention Policy
For drivers, they must additionally have a clean Driver’s Abstract
The first step to volunteer though is to connect with Jenny.
5.  What does student organized mean?
Answer:  At Southlands’ Youth, we try to give youth as many opportunities as possible to help plan, organize and lead events, for those who are comfortable with it. 
6.  Do I have to be a Christian to attend youth programs?
Answer:  Not at all.  We welcome anyone who wants to attend.  We are a church but no one is forced to believe.  If anyone has questions about God or Christianity, we would love to discuss them.
For additional questions, please email Jenny at
