Middle school students from around the U.S. converge at Western State Colorado University for activities, skits, great worship music, awesome speakers and the beauty of the mountains. You don’t want to miss this week of growing in Jesus together.
Serving Springs is a week of impact, fellowship, fun and service. Fifth through ninth graders are a vital part of VBS, leading younger kids to know Jesus better. After VBS finishes each morning, we fill the rest of the day with food, fun and service to various mission partners around the City. Come find out how amazing it can be to pour yourself out on behalf of others.
Upbeat Day Camp is perfect for kids who love to sing, dance and act. Campers learn and perform an entire musical in a week that’s also full of fun, friends, exciting games and growth in Christian faith.
This fun and unique music camp serves as an introduction to handbell ringing, as well as a concentrated time for advanced ringers to improve their skills. Ringers will receive expert instruction and prepare for a concert on Friday of camp week. New this year: we are adding an adult segment, in which adults with little to no experience can begin learning to play handbells.
The Fine Arts Workshop gives middle school and high school students the chance to express themselves in a variety of media. From drawing to painting, 2-D to 3-D, artists will explore the partnership between art and faith. It is in our DNA to be creative, and our experienced camp staff will help campers tap into that desire. Students will have a chance to display what they’ve learned in an Art Exhibition on Friday.
String Camp offers young musicians a week of expert instruction at a fantastic price. It’s a unique opportunity to grow as a musician and learn to play as part of an orchestra. Three orchestras of different skill levels will rehearse as a large group, in smaller groups and as individuals. Camp will conclude with the performance of a Friday evening concert.
