Central Bible Leadership Institute offers a place for Salvation Army people engaged in mission to rest, enjoy fellowship, and experience growth since 1944. CBLI’s purpose is to nurture and prepare Salvation Army people to serve the world through the Army’s mission to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in his name without discrimination.

Adults, families with children, young adults, and teens enjoy a wide variety of activities led by Salvation Army leaders and guests. There are age specific tracks for Bible study, leadership training, and worship as well as many opportunities for all campers to share in worship, fellowship, recreation and meals.

CBLI is an affordable and a wonderful way to spend vacation time in fellowship with friends and family, studying God's word and becoming spiritually and physically refreshed. The cost of accommodations, meals, child care, and most program material are included in the camper registration fee. Some corps and divisions offer scholarships to help with registration fees. See your corps officer for details.

Spanish Translation will be available for Adult track delegates, and all United Meetings

All family housing will be one price, with no additional charges for specific housing units. All non-Village housing will include bed linens/towels. Housing will be assigned only after fees are paid in full or scholarship award is verified.

While we will try to accommodate special needs and requests, general housing will be assigned to maximize occupancy.
Family housing fills up much earlier than the registration deadline.
When housing is at capacity, you will not be able to select that option.

Making this change to a uniform fee will streamline our processes and enable those registering for CBLI to know the fees due at time of registration.

Special Needs

Parents of children with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for school, please forward a copy of your child's IEP to USC.Youth@usc.salvationarmy.org.


Please note that your registration is not complete until you have paid all fees and completed all necessary forms (Sr. High Track).

Once your registration is complete, your housing will then be assigned. CBLI check in will take place on Monday, July 24, 2023 from 2:00pm - 5:00pm in the classrooms under the chapel.
