- ALL campers will get to experience a variety of arts form, including culinary arts, performance arts and visual arts!
- Dedicated Bible storytelling Station
- Outdoor Games are back! It is going to be a blast!

WHAT TO EXPECT
HOPE Christian Fellowship continues to strive to adhere to our local COVID guidelines. We want to be hospitable and loving to all while providing a safe and fun camp experience. As things stand right now:
- Each class will be treated as a cohort/family unit and exposure to other cohort groups will be minimized.
- Camp capacity will be capped at 50%.
- Classes will be small with 8 or less campers.
- We ask that all parents, campers, and volunteers wear masks while on campus except in certain situations, such as outdoors or where proper social distancing can be observed.
- Some camp structure (check ins, pickups, showcase, etc.) will change to minimize crowding.
- Classrooms will be set up to allow for some social distancing.
- Campers will be masked, and kept in their cohorts, during large group sessions.
- Snacks will be prepackaged, individual servings.
- Hand sanitizers will be available throughout the campus including in each classroom.
- Sharing of supplies will be minimized.
If things change between now and camp dates, the above may be adjusted to better reflect current conditions. Thanks for bearing with us as we try to figure out how to best honor God and each other in this unique time.

Let the fun begin! These classes focus on creative performance and basic skills. From theatre to music, these classes will get you moving and excited about creating and telling the story of God.
Materials: Students may be asked to bring items from home for class exercise. If so, these will be items commonly found in most homes and should not be purchased. Nothing extra will be needed on the first day.
Through a variety of art mediums, students enter the world of Visual Arts exploring, experimenting, and creating one-of-a-kind treasures. They will discover the creative genius of God and our natural ability to create because we are made in His image.
Materials: Students should wear old clothes and/or bring a paint shirt to protect clothing. Some projects may be messy!
Food not only fuels us, it can inspire and cultivate creativity in very “satisfying” ways. Students in this track will learn some basic food vocabulary, safety in the kitchen, experiment with tools of the trade, and have hands on experience in creating culinary delights.
Materials: Closed toe shoes and long pants are required in the kitchen. Hair should be pulled up or back for all classes.
Campers will get to experience out of the world, immersive storytelling sessions to experience and encounter the Big God Story. This year, we are using GROUP™ ROCKY RAILWAY — Jesus’ Power Pulls Us Through as our storytelling curriculum. Students will get to be immersed in God’s truths each day!
