Thank you for your interest in St. Paul's Summer Musical Camp! The camp runs June 26-30, Monday-Friday mornings, 8:45-11:45 a.m. It is open to all children in the community entering grades 1-7 (Fall 2017). In one week, the children will learn the music and make the props and costumes for In the Image, a musical that explores how God made us to be creative like He is! On Friday evening (7 p.m.), the children will present the musical to the community, accompanied by instrumental ensemble and celebrated with an ice cream social.
No prior experience is required, but children should have a positive attitude and an eagerness to learn. Daily attendance is vital for a successful Friday performance. If your younger child is not yet ready to focus in this setting, please consider waiting a year to enroll them.
Each day will move through singing, simple movements, snack, and crafts to prepare the costumes, set, and publicity. The camp aims to promote healthy singing, creativity, regard for others, and an understanding of God's love for us. All activities take place in the church buildings, and children will be divided into two age groups. This year's musical features 13 speaking roles. Children entering grades 4-7 may audition for these parts one week before the musical. This year's musical offers lots of opportunity for artistic creativity, as the kids will make their own creations to share in the performance.
Children with dance experience are invited to participate in the dance ensemble.
All children should become familiar with the musical by listening to their CD before the camp. CDs will be available for pick-up in May.
We ask a small donation of $15 per family to offset camp costs. (Scholarships available.)
Registration is limited; please register soon! Since performance of the musical requires the leadership of older children, registration may close sooner for younger children. For more information, contact Joanna Carlson at email@example.com or 410-979-7403.
Finally, this camp is run completely by volunteers. Please consider volunteering to help or donate snacks! See registration form below for details.
