Arts Camp: A Creative, Customizable Alternative to Vacation Bible School and Beyond
• Less packaged, more theologically and pedagogically appropriate, thoughtful, and community-based alternative to Vacation Bible School
• A way for churches to conduct an artful exploration of faith
Arts Camp provides practical, concrete instruction that a church needs to plan, organize, staff, and conduct an annual five-day Arts Camp, including guidance on logistics, funding, finding art instructors (within both the local church and the broader community), ideas for structuring and scheduling the five days of camp, and a celebration on the Sunday following camp. Each chapter includes details on art projects, programming, music, drama, games, and resources.
For Episcopal and other mainline churches looking for alternatives to pre-packaged VBS programs, directors of Christian education and children’s ministry, camps and retreat centers
