Our sixth annual Music and Art Camp will be held beginning Monday, July 10 through Friday, July 14. Campers and families will be invited to share music and arts and crafts from the camp during worship on July 16, with a reception and open house to follow. The camp is open to children entering Kindergarten through completion of the third grade. The cost to students is $75, which can be reduced based on need.
This year’s camp is based on the theme of Peace, from the perspectives of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Native American religious and spiritual traditions. One hoped for product of the camp is a “Peace Pole.” Peace poles often include the word for peace in many languages, and include objects which inspire the viewer toward thoughts of peace. When finished, it will be erected on church grounds in a place and manner that promotes prayer and meditation on peace.
Faculty includes returning members Myriam Gendron and Kari Kjome of the Community Music Center, and Carol Garner of our congregation. They will be joined by Andrea Lawhead, a parent from our Preschool, who brings skills in art and dance.
We will be seeking leadership and volunteers from our congregation for meal planning and preparation and planning and hosting the reception following worship on the 16th.
