Festival hosts the Walking Roots Band are passionate about music as faith formation, so this year two members of the group are leading a week-long mini-camp for rising 3rd - 6th grade students. Five three-hour afternoon sessions culminate in a Friday evening performance in the beautiful outdoor amphitheater setting on the CrossRoads campus. Each day from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, campers will sing, dance, play games and develop their relationship with God through music and the music-making community.
Seth Crissman and Greg Yoder are songwriters, musicians, educators, and Jesus-seekers with a passion for sharing music and faith questions with children. During college, both served multiple summers as camp counselors where they earned reputations for being silly, creative, and effective leaders/teachers. After college, both worked in education: Seth was a special education teacher at the high school level, and Greg taught elementary music, where he was named Teacher of the Year. Currently, their professional lives involve elementary special education (Seth), Kids Club with Virginia Mennonite Missions (also Seth), and serving as Executive Director of the Valley Brethren-Mennonite Heritage Center (Greg). Additionally, both are doting fathers to children ages 3 and under, committed husbands, and dedicated songwriters and performers with the Walking Roots Band.
