Unleash your child's creativity with our Film Camps, run in partnership with Film Camp In A Box!

While every camp is a bit different, each one gives campers the opportunity to plan, create, and show their own creative production using the same equipment, software, and techniques that the professionals use.

Click on the headings below for details on each in-person camp. And if you're looking for the same film experience from the comfort of your home, check out our Film Camp In A Box program.

Description

Build your film brick by brick at our Lego Animation camp! Film-making crews work together with a real film-maker to create a stop-motion animation film as part of this popular Day Camp program.

Over the week of camp, small camper film crews learn to create a storyboard and script for their film. Your camper will help build and design their Lego sets, then add voices, music, and sound effects to their group’s own action-packed, dramatic, or funny film. Campers will also learn how to market their films by creating a movie poster.

Each camper takes home their own movie on a USB stick and celebrates their film at a red carpet Friday film festival.

Campers enjoy the film program in the morning, and then participate in recreational activities during the afternoon.
