"...So that you may become blameless and pure, 'children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.' Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. " -Philippians 2:15-16  
Through Carrie's super-fun, hands-on drama camps, kids learn both basic and advanced principles and techniques of creative acting. Most importantly, Carrie loves using drama to instill in children and teens the knowledge that they are specially and lavishly loved by Jesus, the King of all kings. Carrie has taught acting and creative drama for many years, from Chicago to Johannesburg, South Africa.
With an extensive background in stage performance in community theater, Carrie has developed her own exciting curriculum, "Shine Like Stars" (based on Philippians 2:15-16), which teaches 15 Drama Principles that encourage creative expression through games and improvisation. Kids will even have an opportunity to perform in a live show at the end of Drama Camp!

Recycle~Reuse~Raise $ SNEAKERS!

Athletic style and casual sneakers can be recycled!
In partnership with Got Sneakers HSP will earn $1 for each pair of wearable sneakers we send in (free shipping!) We are now collecting pairs of sneakers near the information desk and will mail them in for HSP each month.

We will donate to charity thrift stores other shoes you bring in. Our partnership with Gotsneakers is ONLY for sneakers NOT dress shoes, boots, flip-flops or slippers.  Thank you!

The wearable sneakers are sent to areas like West Africa and the Caribbean where many people go without shoes. Promote this good cause with friends and family and have fun seeing how many pairs of wearable sneakers you can gather!


Please cut them out and bring them into the HSP office or drop them in the Admin, file folder. Use the handy form linked below or a zip lock or envelope. Please and write your name on it so we can credit you toward our Box Top competitions! The family with the most Box Tops before Open House wins a free lunch card!
