Parkwood United Methodist Summer Arts Camp

PUMC Summer Arts Camp
July 10-13, 2016    5:30 – 7:30


That is the theme of our upcoming Summer Arts Camp.  What is Summer Arts Camp?  It is very similar to the traditional Vacation Bible School that we have had at Parkwood United Methodist Church for many years.  This year we wanted to try something new to help us reach out to the children as they PRAISE God through songs, stories, bible verses and the arts.

The change is the focus on the arts.  Children love to perform, use their hands to make things, be creative and be dramatic!  We will give them an opportunity to do all of those things through our art activities.

Look at this lineup!

*Drama:  Make the props and present the drama based on a Bible story

*Music:  Make musical instruments and learn rhythms

*Crafts:  A variety of activities, including yarn sculptures

*Photography:  Learn strategies for picture taking and present a gallery of photos

*Jewelry Making:  Make necklaces and/or bracelets using a variety of materials

*Woodworking:  Make bluebird houses


These activities will be for our children ages 6-12.  We will have special activities for our 3-5 aged children.

On Sunday, July 10 at 5:30 we will kick off our summer arts camp by having a pizza and tie dye party!  We are asking everyone, adults and children, to bring a shirt to tie dye.  We will wear them on Saturday, July 16, 2016 to our end of camp celebration and ice cream social!
