Camden Kroc Center Program Philosophy

The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Camden Corps Community Center operates from a belief that the TSA mission and the aspirations of Mrs. Joan Kroc are integral yet distinct components of the nature, scope and objectives of all of our programs.   The gospel is central; the needs of individuals, families, and communities are our focus; and providing access without judgment of differences is paramount. It is essential that we create and maintain an environment where dignity and respect characterized our relationship with others and the communities we serve.

Our program model draws from Luke 10:27 which states, “He answered, love God with all of your heart, mind, soul, and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself.”  Our intention is to minister holistically with a goal of realizing positive individual and community outcomes.  We understand that this must be done in communion with others who seek real remedies in an ever changing and diverse world.  Our aim is to exceed expectations in member and guest services, facility care, and program delivery.  We are committed to developing, measuring, displaying and celebrating goal achievement for all programs.

Kroc Center Policies and Procedures

In order to facilitate positive life experience at the Kroc Center, mutual respect between members, guests, and staff is required at all times.  We urge all members to treat others as you would have them treat you.  Failure to observe these policies will result in suspension and/or termination of membership privileges.  Center personnel have the right to refuse service to anyone deemed disruptive or abusive.  The Kroc Center conducts background checks on all members and day pass users.
