But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire Von Trapp family must make a moral decision.

Imagination Camps

Imagination is one of the greatest gifts God has given us. Through it we can take ideas in our mind and heart and make them realities here on earth. We are born to be co-creators- From creating an epic adventure story, to a song that inspires many, to stories and sketches about nature. These camps will challenge your son and/or daughter to grow in imagination, fellowship, and faith.
