Our theme this year is “Hallowed Be Your Name: The Lord’s Prayer” from Matthew 6:5-14. This annual week-long camp seeks to teach children and students who the God of the Bible is, gain an understanding of Christian worship, sharpen their artistic skills, and expose them to the arts as a whole. The week concludes with a night of worship presentation where the children share all they have learned. 

Dates: August 1-5, 2022

Rates: Preschool: $65; Kindergarten-7th: $110

Scholarship: We have a scholarship budget if your family needs assistance. Please reach out to Tiffany (worshiparts@bbcyorktown.org) or Pastor Keith (kmcminn@bbcyorktown.org) if there is a need.

Camp Reviews

The entire week is an incredible balance of fun and learning. My daughter enjoyed time that was well focused on both musical excellence and spiritual formation. Each of the teachers/leaders were energetic and exuded the love of God. She has been eagerly awaiting her return this year!

The camp is well done and organized.  The children are kept busy and have a great time!  The program at the end is a perfect showcase of what they’ve learned all week. 
Chris Van Doren, Parent

 

My daughter and I were both involved in the preschool side of WAC. It was perfect for children who haven’t started school yet as the activities were age appropriate and engaging! Each day my daughter asked if we could go back the next day. She loved every minute of camp!
