Summer Youth Events 2019

June 17-21: Summer Drama Camp! We are excited to offer a drama camp from 9am to 3pm, Monday-Thursday and 9am and 7pm, for a public performance on that Friday. The camp is open to rising 2nd to 8th graders and is designed to give budding (or blossomed) thespians the opportunity to develop and practice skills in theater through rehearsing and performing a production of “The Wizard of Oz”. Campers will learn basic acting skills, practice choreography and drama, and get involved behind the scenes as they enjoy the process of bringing a production to the stage in just one week! There will also be lots of fun and games. The camp’s director has 20 years experience directing summer drama camps. Cost for the camp will be $250, and $225 for additional children from the same family. Registration will be coming soon. Please contact the church office with any questions at,
