Salt ‘n Light Creative Arts Camp

August 9-14, 2020

For students who have completed 6th grade through 12th grade.

 

If you’ve ever been to Impact, Zeteo, or a worship night, you’ve gotten a chance to see how passionate we are about expressing our faith through the arts. At Salt ’n Light, we love to collaborate on creative projects that demonstrate the gospel of Jesus Christ and the truths that he preached through music, drama, visual arts, dance, video, and tech production. Now we want to bring you in on that innovative process and help you discover your own creative spark. 

 

Come join the Salt ’n Light staff for five days of hands-on creative arts training and experience. All campers will have the opportunity to learn about the heart behind creative arts, worship, and directing others toward God in imaginative ways. Then, through our Major and Minor tracks, we will work with campers to develop pieces specific to their interest, teaching and working with them through brainstorming, creative development, writing, acting, directing, dancing, leading worship, producing and more. All of this will be set to the backdrop of a camp environment with focused time on relationships, worship, and going deeper in faith.
