Join us for camp, July 29-August 2nd, 9am-1pm
(Friday Closing Concert, 1-2pm)
All are welcome to join the closing concert at 1pm on Friday, August 2nd!
Campers will enjoy music of all styles as they develop their voices individually and discover the joy of singing and making music in community. Our daily worship time is enriched through our experiences in choral music, drama, visual arts, instruments (guitar, drums, handbells) and sacred dance. Classes will be taught by church staff and professionals in the surrounding Greensboro area. Campers will bring a bag lunch from home. Drinks are provided by the church. The public is invited to the closing concert on Friday at 1 pm.
We have two tracks of study for students during the week and each track is based on the grade completed in the 2018-2019 year. Grades 1-4 and Grades 5-7. The Registration Fee is $30 through May 1 and $40 after May 1.
**Special rates are available for students of Bessemer Elementary and Hope Academy- email Terri Vancil for more information.
