    This summer, children completing the 1st – 6th grade have the exciting opportunity to attend a summer music camp! This week will be filled with music, drama, interest groups (see below), recreation, making new friends, and learning and performing the musical, Back to the Cross by Christy and Daniel Semsen.

    The musical will be directed by Evette Orcutt of Central Baptist Church in Wendell. Christy Graham of Bay Leaf Baptist will direct the drama.

    Cost of Camp: $60. Cost includes a T-shirt, morning snack, drink at lunch, and an excellent week at camp.

    About the Musical Back to the Cross: Abandoned long ago and nearly forgotten, the H/O-2000 is discovered by the kids in our story while attending the annual VBS program at Midway Community Church. A series of time-traveling escapades ensue, taking our intrepid gang of time-jumpers on a wild ride, immersing them in strange times and cultures (including the totally tubular 1980s, the roaring ‘20s, the Wild, Wild West, and even the Garden of Gethsemane!), all leading to a point of discovery about the importance of the Cross and the message of the Gospel.
