Purpose Statement

The purpose of the “A Beautiful Mind Creative Arts Camp” is to emphasize the creative arts as a tool for life long, healthy expression. It is our hope to nurture the gifts of pre-teen girls and to instill self-awareness of who they are in Christ. We provide teachings in the areas of music, theater, visual arts, writing and dance, that can be used to express themselves as they mature and encounter life’s trials.
