WHAT IS AMP CAMP?

It’s 4 days of arts, music, and performance for children entering grades 3 through 8.

Picasso said, “Every child is an artist till someone convinces them otherwise.” At The Mission we are convinced every child is made in the image of the most creative being in the universe. It’s time to release that creativity. When your student registers they will select one of the emphasis listed below for Arts, Music, and Performance. Each day is packed with games, trainings, projects, and more games.

On the final day there will be a big showcase where friends and family can enjoy everything campers have been working on live that night or online via our livestream of the event. Click the registration link below to AMP it up!

COURSE CATALOG:

 

Emphasis Art


Drawing

Some kids feel like they can’t draw but in truth they have just never been taught the fundamental basics. In this class, we will teach you the three R’s of art and at the showcase you will be able to show off your before and after pictures with pride.


Painting

Just like in drawing most kids are never taught the fundamentals of painting. In this class, we will explore painting techniques crucial to a young artists success.

Culinary

Culinary is a fancy way of saying the art of cooking. In this course selection you will learn a few simple recipes, proper cooking techniques, and tips from a successful Chef. You will walk away from this class with your very own recipe book and will get to participate in a cooking contest as part of your showcase.

Food Art

In the new Food Art course, you will be learning how to turn simple treats into beautiful works of art. Have you ever wanted to turn a watermelon into a shark? Well we have and we did and you can too! 

Fashion Design

In four short days you will design and create an amazing costume or outfit out of tissue paper, duct tape, and other miscellaneous craft supplies. At your showcase you can show off your creation in a style filled fashion show.

DIY Crafts

In DIY Crafts we will be experimenting with how to make extraordinary craft masterpieces out of ordinary household objects.
