About The Salvation Army Kroc Center - Camden, NJ

The 120,000 square-foot Salvation Army Kroc Center redefines what a community center is all about. This unprecedented place of gathering and enrichment houses an array of education, sports, faith, arts and supportive programs never before assembled under one roof in Camden, open and accessible to all. The programs, as well as the building itself, have been designed to stimulate the mind, body and spirit, to provide hope, and to transform the life of each and every member of the community.

Development of The Salvation Army Kroc Center was made possible by a $59 million combined capital and endowment grant from a bequest to The Salvation Army by the late Mrs. Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc. Working with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection and Camden Redevelopment Agency, the former “Harrison Avenue Landfill” (brownfield) was converted into a wonderful asset right in the residential neighborhood of Cramer Hill in Camden. As a condition to the significant Kroc grant, the community also raised $9 million locally through the generous support of hundreds of donors.
