Twenty-two students recently completed a week of camp focused on music and art.

Rev. Greg Hartzog, Minister of Music at First Baptist Church of Rincon, directed the musical part of the camp.

The students learned five songs from the musical “The Key of Life,” written by Pam Andrews and Rob Howard. The focus of the songs taught them that faith, hope and love are the keys we need to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

In the musical, the children cited scripture and shared about four men in the Bible who found the key of life; John the Baptist, Simon Peter, the Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan. The students learned choreography, and used rhythm band instruments for the musical.

Dr. Bill Gammon, associate pastor, was the art instructor for the week. The kids learned basic art techniques, photography, abstract stained glass on canvas, metal and wood sculpture, cartooning, geometric design, guardant drawing and works in color pencil on glass.

Dylon Oliver was recognized as the art student of the week. He is the son of Dino and Ruth Oliver of Rincon.
