Summer Camps 2021

*MAY 6, 2021 UPDATE: All camps are filled, but we are compiling waitlists for each camp. Please read through the camp info and schedule, then fill out our online form to be placed on the waitlist.

After months of research, discussion and planning, we’ve come up with something we feel is safe, engaged, and lives up to the expectations of an amazing Movie Makers summer camp experience. There are changes to both the number of camps we are able to offer, campers’ ages, and the daily schedule. Please read carefully, then register here, or email us with any questions. Hope to see you this summmer!

  • Summer camp hours are 9am – 1pm. Campers will bring a snack, but not have lunch during camp hours.
  • Summer camps will be all OUTDOORS! We will have canopies for shade.
  • In case of heavy rain, we’ll have class online, via Zoom
  • Campers will wear masks unless they are acting, then we will maintain social distancing. (If CDC guidelines change by the camp date, we’ll make our best decisions about adapting these policies.)

We hope to see you all this summer!

Movie Makers

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, each participant will be sent a link to download the movie. If feasible, we may gather for a premiere party where we’ll watch our movie on the big screen together.

Each week-long summer camp costs $350, and includes the week of camp and a link to a digital copy of the movie.
