If your group is looking for a fun, flexible activity at a reasonable price, The Salvation Army Kroc Center is waiting for you! Check out some examples of groups we have entertained in recent months:

– Playground picnics for 50 kids of all ages, with use of our giant slip & slide (in season)
– Open swim time for 30 preschoolers in the zero-depth pool area with water play structure and splash pad
– Private parties for 200 fifth-graders in our indoor Aquatics Center, Climbing Wall, Game Room and Gymnasium
– High school dances in our Fireside Hall and adjacent outdoor amphitheater
– Overnight rentals of the entire Kroc Center for high school post-ceremony “Grad Bash” parties

Whatever your needs, the Kroc Krew will help you through the planning process from concept to completion. We’ll work with you to find a schedule and activities that offer the most fun at the lowest cost.

If you’re on a shoestring budget, buy $5 day passes for your group of 20 or more and get access to all the Kroc has to offer. This is a great option for individual classes, preschools, youth groups, or after-school programs.

Or, think big and bring your whole grade, school, business, or congregation! Large groups can arrange private rentals of the Aquatics Center and other recreation spaces, plus areas to hold your own meetings or activities. The Worship and Performing Arts Center can seat up to 400 for a theater-style presentation.

So, whether your group is 20 or 200, 5-year-olds or 15-year-olds, The Salvation Army Kroc Center has something to offer that will keep them active and send them home happy (and hopefully tired).

Your parents and leaders will rest easy with the Kroc Center’s commitment to safety. The climbing wall features an auto-belay and uses certified attendants and all water activities are supervised by American Red Cross-trained lifeguards. And, our entire Kroc Krew goes through CPR training and The Salvation Army’s “Safe from Harm” program to ensure the protection of kids and vulnerable adults. We also screen each member, day pass user, and program participant against available sexual offender databases.

Facility use is limited to open recreation areas for day pass users. Schedules are available at or by request. Group day passes must be purchased at least two weeks in advance. All groups must maintain age-appropriate child supervision ratios. Children under 12 must be supervised by an adult at all times. Youth under 16 may not use the fitness floor (except with a valid Teen Fit Permit for ages 12-15).
