TRACK DESCRIPTIONS

Each child can choose one of the following three tracks. We will do our best to place your child in the track of their preference!

TRACK ONE

Dance, Creative Storytelling, and Instrumental Music

This track is ideal for students who love to move, make a lot of noise, and exercise creativity! Students will explore the possibilities of using movement to worship and will be challenged to improve their dance technique, whether they are a beginner or have been training for many years! They will also participate in improvisatory, pantomime-style acting and will contribute their unique ideas in order to create a beautiful portrayal of the parables of Christ. Finally, students in this track will be given the opportunity to use either percussion instruments or recorders (depending on age and prior musical experiences) to worship through the performance of hymns as well as modern worship songs.
This track is a great opportunity for those who love to tell a good story and have the knack to be drama queens or kings! Students will have the opportunity to learn about the wonderful world of Theatre and focus on their craft of acting! But, fear not! No matter if you’re a pro or just starting out, this track will help you to become a better artist. Students will also have the opportunity to lean into worshipping the Lord through music, by participating in group devotional activities. Lastly, students will enhance their artistic form by telling a story through the visual arts and creative expression. *Note: students in this track will have to memorize scripts*

TRACK TWO

Acting, Worship Through Music, and Visual Storytelling

TRACK THREE

Stagecraft, Worship Through Visual Art, and Choir

For students who love to worship through art that they create with their hands and also love to sing praises, this is their track! Students will have the opportunity to create scene design for the end of camp production. They will fine-tune skills such as painting, glueing, and constructing, all while learning about the apostle Peter and his journey. Students will also have the opportunity to lead others in worshiping the Lord through visual art in two group devotional activities. Finally, students will learn to sing a choral piece which will be presented in the end of the week production. Campers will have the opportunity to learn musical techniques as well as the importance of group dynamics in relation to the body of Christ.
