2022 Music and Arts Camp

Preparations are underway for the 2022 Music & Arts Camp! We are very excited to welcome campers and youth mentors for three full mornings of musical, crafty fun. Through singing, drumming, art, nature, and service, we’ll begin to learn how God may be calling us to meet the needs of the world. 

DATE: August 8-10 (Mon-Wed, 9am-1pm)

CAMPERS: Children entering grades K-5 in Fall 2022. 

MENTORS: Students entering grades 6-12 in Fall 2022. Mentors may attend camp at no cost.

REGISTRATION FEE: $40 for the first child, $35 for the second child, and $30 for any additional children.

Registration is now OPEN: 

NEW this summer is a special outreach project that will be completed during camp. We have partnered with Dolls of Hope, a project of the Undaunted Foundation - a registered 501(c)(3) public charity based out of Lehi. Dolls of Hope strives to bring hope and joy to children - one bear at a time. Camp participants will sew and stuff cuddly bears that will be sent to refugee camps and children in crisis around the world. 

Would you like to donate supplies for our Dolls of Hope service project? We are in need of the following items:

  • Soft and cuddly fabrics in bright colors/patterns (fleece, flannel, minky, super-soft knit)
  • Fabric disappearing tracing markers 
  • Polyfill
  • Embroidery floss (any dark color)

We’re also accepting monetary donations to purchase art, gardening, and lunch supplies. Thank you for your generous support of this ministry!

Many grown-up hands are needed for this fun and creative experience. Can you donate your time to help plant seeds, feed the crew, or help children with crafts? If any of these opportunities interests you, please contact Katie Houts to volunteer ( or 319-415-6610).

  • Check-In Crew - (Mon-Wed) 8:45-9:10am. Check in participants and distribute nametags.
  • Dolls of Hope Crew - (Mon-Wed) 11:45am-12:30pm. This crew will assist children sewing and stuffing the bears. 
  • Nature Crew – (Tuesday only) 9:15-11:30am. Lead our nature-inspired activities.
  • Food Crew - (Mon-Wed) 11:00am-12:30pm. Prepare and serve a simple lunch.

About Hilltop Children's Music Program

The Hilltop Children’s Music Program (HCMP) offers a unique opportunity for children in grades K-5th grade to grow in their Christian faith through musical expression. This free ministry introduces children to the joy of music and cultivates the lifelong gift of song in each child. We use our hearts, our hands, and our voices in activities that benefit the musical development of children: singing, percussion, movement, Orff, handchimes, and much more. We lay important groundwork for musicianship - ear training, music literacy and readiness, musical expression, and creativity.

The HCMP also serves to inspire the spiritual development of children. We explore foundational Bible stories and move through the seasons of the church year by creating percussion grooves, crafting songtales, and preparing our choral repertoire. Our repertoire is diverse - incorporating global music and folk music in addition to newly-composed sacred anthems for children's voices.

The children in HCMP are provided experiences of worship leadership at Hilltop and around the community. In addition to participating in worship services at Hilltop, the children may perform at Hilltop's annual concert events: the Fall Festival of Faith, the Hilltop Christmas Concert, and the Music & Arts Fundraising Concert. These events are a wonderful opportunity to share our gift of music with the community.

Together, we imagine and discover how we can shine God's light and love to the world!
