Parents and Kids: Check Out The Double Bill At First Lutheran Church

Looking for some fun activities for the kiddos this summer? Check out the double bill, theater and language arts, offerings at Tacoma's historic First Lutheran Church, located adjacent to beautiful Wright Park. Creative Arts Vacation Bible School takes place at the church August 11th-15th, 2008 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Judy Hulbert, Artistic Director of The North End Children's Theatre and Theater Director at Lowell Elementary, along with husband Duane Hulbert, a University of Puget Sound Music Professor, and their two sons, will be teaching, producing, and directing their original musical, "Noah and His Wild Adventure." Children of all ages are invited and welcomed to participate in this exciting new production that features learning about theater, acting, singing, dancing, playing, and connecting the arts with faith. Space is limited, so act fast! The cost is $5.00 per child.

Ole' in the afternoon! The A.C.E. Language Institution presents Spanish Language Camp, also held on the campus of First Lutheran Church. This camp runs from August 11th-14th, 1:00 PM to 4:00 P.M. Activities for school age kids (must be at least a kindergarten graduates) include games, activities, crafts, songs, cultural exploration, and an imaginary trip to Cuba. Language and learning made fun and exciting for all. This camp costs $159.00 per child.

For children who would like to do both camps at First Lutheran Church, the church will provide a supervision while children eat a sack lunch from home. What a deal!

So, for registration and to sign up, please contact First Lutheran Church at 272-1538 or visit their website at

What wonderful offerings for summer camps, Kim! First Lutheran lives up to its name.

Funny you seldom hear of Second Whatever Church and never Third. I wonder how one gets to be first.

Stephanie, you crack me up. And you are the FIRST person to do so today!

Yeah, there are some great camps in the South Sound to appeal to lots of different kids.

My darling Gabriel will be going to violin camp in Tacoma and another in Seattle. I cannot say enough good things about Janet Disney who teaches violin at Ted Brown.

We went to a recital there where Gabriel performed for the first time last Saturday. The children are so cute and learning so much. I should have blogged about it, but was distracted getting ready to leave town.
