BAC2ONE is a week-long, Christian based art camp held at Bethel Church in Princeton. We invite children who are entering 2nd grade through entering 8th grade to join us in exploring numerous areas of art.
Over the past 8 years, we have offered a large variety of classes such as drama, dance, drawing, creative writing, videography, woodworking, photography, mosaics, pizza pizazz, jewelry design, sewing, journalism, car design, paper art, fishing lures, chalk art, pen & ink, pottery, sign language, imprinting, boom whackers, water color, calligraphy, scrap-booking, stomp, pastry making, cake decorating, tie dye, and balloon sculpture and more!
Fun and art exploration are important aspects of BAC2ONE; however, our mission is to connect campers to their Creator. We believe that God created us in His own image and has given each of us a creative gift. We believe that it is our responsibility to find, nurture, and develop our gifts in order to use them in service to our Creator and our communities. We believe that connecting kids to their Creator through their creative talents lets them see that God longs to be a part of their every day lives.
This year, BAC2ONE runs from July 23 – July 27, 2012. The campers attend a 1.5 hour core class every morning, as well as participate in Focus time and small groups. During Monday through Thursday afternoons, the campers choose two to four one hour elective classes.
On Friday, we excuse the campers at noon so that the BAC2ONE team can prepare for the art show on Friday evening. Throughout the building, we display all of our campers’ creative projects. A class presentation of dance, drama, music, stomp, boom whackers, and more completes the art show. Last year over 500 people attended the Friday evening event.
Each year, BAC2ONE follows a theme. Past themes include: “Discover the Treasure,” “Endless Possibilities,” “Made by Heart,” “Be Rooted,” “Wonder” and “Choices.” Our 2012 theme is “EVERYTHING”. We long for our camp participants to whole-heartedly live out their lives with the goal of doing and saying EVERYTHING to the glory of God.
Intrigued? Interested in hearing more? We’re looking for Christian artists who desire to share their talents with children. We’re looking for young people and adults who are passionate about forming relationships with children and encouraging them to develop a relationship with their Creator as small group leaders. We’re looking for able-bodied people who would be willing to work as helpers in classrooms or on the kitchen crew. Almost 200 campers attended BAC2ONE in 2011, with another 25 children at “miniBAC” where our BAC2ONE team members’ children who are not old enough to participate in BAC2ONE attend. We need volunteers! We need you. Prayerfully consider joining us this summer in this exciting ministry. Please contact us at: Bethel Church – 763-389-5715 – firstname.lastname@example.org.
