MAD CAMPIt’s something different, it’s something new, it’s something you’ll be glad you can do. It’s M.A.D. camp! A week of music, art and drama like you’ve never experienced! We will learn the music from the musical, Oh Jonah. We will make scenery, create our costumes and learn the lessons of Jonah in Bubba’s Belly! Each morning we will meet at 9:00am. Each camper will bring a lunch and dismissal will be at 1:00pm. There will be childcare offered until 3:00pm for an additional fee. We plan on shouting out this event to the neighborhood so make plans to be with us and bring friends along!
