Summer Arts Camp started in 1997 as part of the "talents" program to raise funds for Sussex Christian School. It was a challenge based on the parable of the talents(currency) found in Matthew 25:14-30. Children, parents, and teachers were given seed money. Each person (or group) used their money as best as they could to multiply their profits. Summer Arts Camp has been held each year at the home of Troy and Rita Yanoff in Wantage, NJ.
