Fine Arts Week, 2016

Grades 1-5  

 Registration is NOW open!

Incoming 1st-6th graders will spend a week dabbling in all of the arts and having a ton of fun from 3-8pm, August 1-5 at Holy Covenant UMC.

They’ll dance, sing, make costumes, play instruments, do art with Mr. Logan, and put on “We Like Sheep”, a children’s musical teaching the love of the Good Shepherd. Parents, you’ll get to see the fully staged version on Friday night at the end of camp!

Get it on your calendars NOW. Cost is $25 per child with a max of $50 per family. Membership at Holy Covenant is NOT required, all in the community are welcome! Scouts will earn credits towards badges and 4Hers will complete a full Fine Arts project in one week!  Mail or bring to Holy Covenant UMC. 

Once you are registered, plan to drop by the church office between 9 and 3 pm Tuesday – Friday to pick up a learning CD (one per family)

Volunteers are needed! All adults and teens entering 7th grade and up, please contact me with availability to volunteer. This is a fantastic program that benefits the entire community. If you can help, even for a day, please do!
