What is a Moonbeam?

The Salvation Army Moonbeam program is a holistic Christian Education experience for girls and boys in pre-k and kindergarten.

What are the goals of the Moonbeam program?

The goal of the Moonbeam program is to help boys and girls to develop:
Positive social and communication habits
Artistic flare and giftedness
Through a Biblical worldview by encouraging:
Christian values and Biblical principles
Physical, mental, spiritual, and social development
In a safe environment for learning, developing, and caring that is
age appropriate and Christ centered.


To become a Moonbeam a child must:

  • Be four or five years old. (Six years old if still in kindergarten).
  • Attend four consecutive troop meetings.
  • Learn the Moonbeam Pledge, Motto and Prayer.

How do I get my child involved in a troop? How can I volunteer?

How to share in this program with your child?

It’s all about doing
What you can
When you can
With what you can

Here are a few suggestions:



What did you do today?
What did you learn?
What did you like least/most?


This can be a great opportunity to spend time working together!


Do you like crafts?
How about music or reading?
What are your craft or cooking skills like?
Be creative and ask you local Salvation Army Moonbeams leader how you can be involved!
