VBS Arts Camp

Our enrollment for Jingle Bell Beach has reached capacity...but never fear!  We've got a wait list for you to join!  The sooner you sign up, the better your chances to get a spot! 

Jingle Bell Beach: July 16-20, 2018

 Christmas in July??? You bet!  What do you think of when you think of Christmas…Snow? Santa? Presents?  A tree? So many things evoke thoughts of the Christmas season, but none of those things are needed to celebrate Christmas.  What do you need to celebrate Christmas??This Summer, we’re turning Christmas cerebrations upside down by celebrating in the summer…and at the beach! 

Two Camps in One...Rookies and Arts Campers! 

Rookies are students who are 4 years old through First Grade. Their program is in the morning only, (9-11:30am), although you can choose for them to attend until 3pm if it works better for your schedule. Rookies get a taste of a lot of activities throughout the week from arts and crafts, to games, to Bible story time.

Arts Campers are students in Second through Fifth Grade. Their program is from 9am-3pm. Campers get to choose from four camps to attend for the week and spend their week concentrating on projects within their chosen camp:

  1. Domestic Arts Camp: This year we're focusing on Baking/cake decorating/cookie baking. Who doesn’t love baking at Christmas? This year we’ll be growing in our baking skills in our brand new kitchen - let’s get together and bake! We’ll enjoy our Christmas theme this year as we create yummy treats for ourselves, our families, and to share with our community.  This camp has reached it's capacity; more spots will not be added as we are limited by facility constraints, not volunteers.  
  2. NEW! Construction Arts Camp: Let's build something!  This week at Construction Arts Camp we are going to use all sorts of different materials from wood to cloth to marshmallows to create structures as unique as each of God’s children.  We will work together to make some truly awesome gifts for both our families and the community around us.  So strap on your tool belt and let’s get creative! This camp has reached it's capacity; more spots will not be added as we are limited by facility constraints, not volunteers.  
  3. Performing Arts: Music and Drama Skill Building will include classes in music, choreography and drama. Students in this track will fill the roles of actors, singers and dancers in the musical, “Jingle Bell Beach.”
  4. Visual Arts: We’ll use different mediums to create works of art! Projects will include drawing, painting and learning about famous artists. Some of these projects will be used in the dinner theater and some will be taken home. (We’ve got new projects and artists this year!) 

Please read through ALL of the instructions before starting the registration process.  We do things a little differently here at POP! 

We need over 100 volunteers to make our Camp a success each year.  There are lots of different opportunities to help; I bet one of our opportunities would be a fit for you!  The capacity of our camps is directly dependent on our volunteer engagement!  The more volunteers we have, the more kids we can welcome!
