Movie Makers’ summer day camps are like a whole session in one week! Each week, campers participate in the writing, directing, acting and camera work to create their very own movie.
Beginning only with the theme for that week we’ll create our story, develop our characters, design sets, even work on costumes and make-up. Then we’ll get a crash course in camera work and filming techniques using digital video equipment.
Putting all the skills together, we’ll spend the week making our movie. All participants will spend time in front of and behind the camera, with the opportunity to focus on the parts of movie making they enjoy the most. At the end of each week, we will have made our movie!
A few weeks later, we gather for a premiere party where we’ll invite friends and family and watch our movie on our big outdoor screen together. And each participant will be sent a link to download the movie.
Each week-long summer camp costs $400, and includes the week of camp, the premiere party, and a link to a digital copy of the movie.

- All campers will receive a link to download their movie(s) several weeks after camp. Whether and how we gather for a premiere is still uncertain.
- We have always tried to be as safe as possible during this long and ever changing pandemic. All Movie Makers teachers and CITs will be vaccinated. However, we do not require our campers to be vaccinated. Our Summer camps will follow up-to-date safety measures. Since summer is still many months away we do not know what things will be like at that point. As we get closer to camps starting I will send out detailed information about our current COVID policies. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you!
