Creative Arts Camp at Trinity on Jackson in Elkhart is for children in Kindergarten through those going into 6th grade.

This online event allows kids a chance to explore many different types of arts including music, movement, rhythm, visual art, and more! New opportunities every year and for each age group.

Two tracks will be offered to meet the abilities of your child.  

Each morning at 9:00 am Pastor Lori Grasty will share a Front Porch Story. Regardless of which track you are registered for, watch Front Porch Stories to hear about the day, win prizes, and participate in the interactive experience on the Creative Arts Camp YouTube Channel.

After the Front Porch Story, you can participate in the other classes/activities on the YouTube channel from your track at your convenience. All classes will be available after Front Porch Stories. 

The Red Track is designed for younger children in the lower elementary grades.  The activities offered in the Red Track can be done as a family so that you can assist your child. Many of our classes are working to offer creative activities with items you already have in your home. 

The following are the classes intended for the Red Track:

  • Swinging & Singing: sing and move with camp songs 
    taught by Erin Elliott, Elsie Rogers Elementary School 
  • Playing on the Porch: create music with everyday objects
    taught by Carrie Shank, Pinewood Elementary School
  • Visual Exploration (experience art in a new way)* 
    taught by Jonathan Engbers, Elkhart Christian Academy 

* Visual Exploration supply lists will be available by June 30th. If do not have access to any of the supplies - please let us know and we can help! 

The Blue Track is designed for older children in the upper elementary grades. The activities in this track are designed so that older children can participate without the assistance of a parent.  The classes for the Blue Track are:

  • Speaking without Words (create video without words)
    taught by Michelle Gruver, Edwardsburg Elementary School 
  • Brain Busters (using common objects to do creative problem solving)
    taught by Kris Carpenter, Mary Feeser Elementary School 
  • Drumming on the Deck (drumming with objects found at home such as buckets or boxes and sticks, spoons or dowel rods)

If you are adventurous, you and your child could sign up for both tracks.  There is nothing holding you back!
