Hightown Community Sports and Arts Centre is located a short walk away from the University in the popular student living area of High Town. Smaller communities may offer only 1 or 2 types of schools within a reasonable distance. Sports programs have occasionally suffered unnecessary deaths on the playing field. The After School Sport and Arts Initiative started out in 2010 as the After School Sport Initiative, a 3 year pilot project funded through the 2010 Sport Legacy fund.
Sports & Arts Camp is a discipleship opportunity, where volunteers will connect with God, children, other teens and adults, grow in their faith, and serve the Lord as a team. Music and arts are among the first programs to be considered when cutting the budget.
Like you say, without adequate and proper funding a music program in public schools will be less than successful. What you’ll find when you look at a high school music program – or even the music programs of quality junior high schools – is NOT a ‘goof-off’ class.
Arts programs tend to be a lot calmer (have you ever heard of an audience member being trampled to death during a performance of Fiddler on the Roof, Phantom of the Opera, or Wicked?). The program offers a visual arts curriculum integrated with a biblical worldview.
Many schools emphasize discipline and respect for parents, instructors and elders. With outstanding modern facilities unequaled in camping, strong elective program options and a highly qualified experienced staff, French Woods Sports and Arts Center is an excellent choice when considering summer camps.
