Creative Spirit Camp
Creative Spirit Camp, held one week each summer for rising 1st-12th Graders, offers children and youth a great opportunity to enjoy the performing and fine arts in a fun and relaxed environment. Campers develop new skills and make new friends as they learn and play together applying their "creative juices." With multiple activities to choose from in each of four daily "classes," campers can learn to perform different types of dance, create an assortment of hands-on art projects, gain life skills such as sewing and cooking, explore the world of music through singing and ringing handbells, plus express themselves dramatically through acting. The week concludes with a closing recital showcasing their hard work and effort.
