After a year hiatus, The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) Music and Worship Division is preparing to host its sixth annual Music and Worship Arts Camp: Elevate, on campus, July 12-16. Designed for high-school and middle-school students, the camp has two main purposes: guide “elevate” students in their musical abilities (singing, playing instruments, leading worship, operating worship technology, learning creative arts, and so much more) and help students “elevate” the Lord as they gain a deeper understanding of true worship.
While on the BCF Graceville campus, students will enjoy the “college experience” by living in the dorms, eating in the dining hall, using the college recreational facilities, and getting to know some of BCF’s outstanding music professors and talented students. Elevate campers will receive lessons on guitar, piano, drums, bass, band instruments, voice, as well as specialty classes such as music reading, choir, worship leadership, technology, photography, videography, and sign language. Elevate will also include a splash day, a color war, and a trip to the Water World Water Park in Dothan, adding to the fun fellowship.
Evenings will feature a special time of youth-oriented worship. Serving as camp pastor this year is Josh Richards, a BCF graduate and master’s student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. Musical worship will be led by BCF alumni and current music students.
Elevate is the perfect camp opportunity for youth who want to grow in their relationship with the Lord and increase their musical skills. The camp will be extremely beneficial for high school and middle school students who sing or play in a youth praise band, sing in a youth choir, or serve on a worship team; however, no musical experience is necessary.
The cost is $200.00 per camper. For more information or to register, contact the BCF Music and Worship Division at 800.328.2660 ext. 427 or access the BCF website (www.baptistcollege.edu) and click on the Elevate banner.
