Illuminate! Creative Arts Studio and Glory of Zion International's Youth Ministry, SWIFT, are gearing up to join forces for a powerful brand new week long youth camp this summer filled with numerous opportunities to expand their journey with the Lord!
This year we are going the distance and offering a full week of workshops, guest speakers, worship gatherings and so much more! This will be a time to better equip and enhance the call and gifts God has placed on your life. We can’t wait to have the next generation join us as the Global Spheres Center and Illuminate Creative Arts Studio host and teach during this summer event! If you have or know of a student who would enjoy being a part of this life-changing week, be sure to read the details below.
SWIFT Youth Summer Details: Go The Distance!
When: August 5th -11th 2019
Where are the classes: Global Spheres Center in Corinth, TX
Where are we staying: Camp Copass in Denton, TX
Cost: $125.00 per student ($25.00 deposit at registration to hold your child's spot)
Registration closes: July 14, 2019
Workshop tracks being offered:
(all campers will need to pick one track; we will not be able to allow students to pick more than one track)
Dance - Students enrolled in this track will spend their four sessions a day in Illuminate! Creative Arts Studio being trained by our dance department staff. Each day students will spend time taking a variety of dance technique classes, attending rehearsals for the Saturday night showcase, gain tools to use dance as an expression of worship through group improv classes, spend time creating and choreographing a dance presentation, and rehearsing with the GOZ/Illuminate! Dance team to prepare a presentation for the Sunday morning service at Glory of Zion International Ministries on the Global Spheres Campus. All levels, including beginners with no previous dance experience are welcome to join us this summer!
Media - Throughout the week students will be taught about photography, filming, lighting, sound, and general training in regards to media and production. Campers will learn how to use their skills and creative eye to bring forth the perspective the Lord is giving them through various media outlets.
Art - Throughout the art track which will be held within Illuminate! Creative Arts Studio on the Global Spheres Campus, students will spend time learning art technique, creating their own individual pieces, as well as working on a large group art piece for the Saturday showcase. Our hope is that these students will leave this week with an understanding of what God can speak through them and through their art expressions.
Music - The Music/Vocal track for this year’s camp is divided into four daily sessions that will allow time for students to receive small group and/or individual attention with their chosen instrument from one of our many musicians and instructors we have on staff, allow rehearsal time to prepare a performance piece for the Saturday night showcase, explore in a live worship setting how to express yourself and what God is speaking to you through your instrument or voice, as well as learn music theory and hear from various musicians regarding the path that God has put them on. Whether your student has spent years training in their chosen field or they’ve never touched an instrument or sang outside of the shower we are excited to go on this journey with them!
Outdoor - This track is designed for those students who just love the outdoors and nature! We will spend time on the outside portion of the Global Spheres Center Campus learning about how God speaks through the garden, nature, and the animals who now call this place home. This track is run by some of the GSC fitness trainers and will have times spent outdoors stretching and strengthening as well as team building activities through sports and outdoor games.
Ministry - This track is for those kids who feel a call to more traditional ministry roles. Each morning we will learn about and activate the gift of prophecy within ourselves and each other. There will be times to hear from various ministers who travel and are sent out into the world. Students will also work on a spoken word piece throughout the week that might possibly be performed at the Saturday Showcase.
The $125 camp costs cover all meals and transportation (while at camp), as well as a camp T-shirt, lodging and
all workshops that are offered during this time. If your youth is interested in attending, please

1 Timothy 6:11-12
11 But as for you, O man of God, flee from these things; aim at and pursue righteousness [true goodness, moral conformity to the character of God], godliness [the fear of God], faith, love, steadfastness, and gentleness.
12 Fight the good fight of the faith [in the conflict with evil]; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called, and [for which] you made the good confession [of faith] in the presence of many witnesses.
