Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Atonement Brings
Yes! And…Collaborative Arts Summer Camp to Fishtown
This summer, Yes! And… is offering camp at Atonement Lutheran Church from July 30 to August 10, 2012 for current grades 3 – 7. Although not a “Christian” camp it incorporates the same values we have in our church. Atonement is located at1542 E. Montgomery Ave
Middle school aged students are often left in the dust when it comes to summer camp. Most camps are geared toward younger children between kindergarten and 5th grade. This is unfortunate when the tween/teen age group is at the most risk.
At Yes! And...Collaborative Arts Theater Camp these children get to recreate themselves in a fun, friendly, safe and creative environment. We have seen many children grow within the camp. Many have stayed on going through Shadow Company Camp for teens and performing in the Winter Sort of Thing Production at Eastern. It is amazing to see the growth, friendship, creativity and vision the youth develop during camp. The week concludes with a performance of all the campers on the evening of August 10th.
The cost for a child to attend the full camp is $400.00 for two weeks. Many of the children who would benefit from this camp find it difficult to pay the cost. We as a church run fundraisers during the year to help defray the cost of camp, and there are also scholarships available. Yes! And…Collaborative Arts never turns a child away because of lack of funds.
