Summer At First

At FIRST we know how to do summer right, which is why we’ve got so many great camps and summer programs for kids! Whether you’re into sports, arts, music, or dance, there’s an adventure waiting for you. So go ahead and start exploring the camps below and let’s race into summer!

(Click on the shortcuts below to jump to specific areas)

Worship Arts Camp is the perfect  camp for kids who love to dabble in the arts. For five fun days kids get to worship through the arts choosing one musical instrument and an add on art focus from a wide variety of classes. Worship Arts Camp gives kids a chance to try something new without the commitment of private lessons or buying an instrument. 

We offer a ton of classes to ensure small group environments so that kids get the attention and training they deserve. On the final day of camp the children get to perform a miniature concert with their peers showcasing what they learned during the week. We hope to see you this summer at Worship Arts Camp.
