MAD for Jesus

July 10 - 13, 2023

For one week each summer, Trietsch hosts a half- day MAD Camp (Music-Arts-Drama) camp for kids from Wesley-Rankin Community Center. The annual MAD for Jesus Camp focuses on giving 150-200 children, grades 1-8, of the Wesley-Rankin Community Center in West Dallas, access to Music, Art, Drama and Dance.

While the camp lasts one week, preparation begins months ahead of time. Through MAD Camp, kids get a chance to explore creatively as God designed them to do.
