Creative Arts Camp "Rehearsal - Preparing for Eternity"

Date: Sunday June 18th - Friday June 23rd

Program Director: Jeff Swain


The theme of Creative Arts Week 2017 is “Rehearsal”. As you probably already realize, a rehearsal is a walk-through, or a practice, that prepares us for the real performance that is coming.  Our lives here on this earth are temporary, but we have the opportunity to use our lives to prepare us for eternity.  During this week, it is our goal to grow in our relationship with God, with one another, and in our abilities to honor Him with our lives. This week we will be stepping into God’s creation to be inspired by His handiwork, we will engage in activities that will allow us to laugh and learn with one another, and we will invest ourselves in creative arts that will allow us to imitate God’s creativity and express our appreciation to him. Some of the areas that we will be focusing on will be Music, Drama, Media, as well as investing some time in both Visual and Tactile Art Mediums.


Stephen Brooks will also be serving at this week of camp.  Stephen is a graduate from Mid-Atlantic Christian University.  He served as a Worship Arts Minister for 7 years in Virginia Beach, VA & Indianapolis, IN.  He is currently living in Indianapolis, and is the co-owner/co-founder of Brooks & Bourke Theatre Company in Indianapolis.  Stephen will be heading up our drama track, will be helping to lead worship, and will be leading various electives.


Rob Blackwell will also be serving at this week of camp.  Rob studied music and communications at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington. Rob has toured with bands such as Building 429, Fee, Decyfer Down. His knowledge of touring also includes writing with Grammy nominated and award wining songwriters for Mandesa, Third Day, Lifehouse, and Toby Keith. Rob is currently living in New Bern, NC, studying advanced music theory and teaching techniques from the University of Edinburgh through online classes.  Rob will be heading up our music track, will be helping to lead worship, and will be leading various electives.


The camp will be set up with two primary tracks, a music track & a drama track… Whichever track you decide to take will determine the primary focus of your week.  But, in saying that, you will also be able to choose two electives per day to participate in as well. Electives will include opportunities to learn about and participate in (Guitar, Keyboard, Percussion, Vocals, Photography, Painting, Drama, Graphic Design, ProPresenter, and a few others that are still being developed). Each day will also include various opportunities to study, worship and interact with your fellow campers and staff.  We will participate in some traditional Elkhorn activities (i.e. high/low ropes courses, climbing wall, pool) as well as some typical camp style games and activities.


If you’re interested in exploring and using the gifts God has given you, sign up now. We’ll see you at Elkhorn. 1 Peter 4:10-11
