MOVIE MAKERS IS STILL HAVING CAMPS THIS YEAR! We are figuring out what this means and are taking the month of May to plan out our options. Here are a few things we are thinking about. Most of our camps have a couple of spots left, but not many. Register soon to ensure a spot!
1.) We’ll likely offer online summer camps this year, either to augment our in-person small social distancing offerings, or as Plan B if in-person camps are not an option by then. We’ll create engaging online workshops for campers to “attend” together, and super-fun assignments your kids can do at home. There will be lots of play, engaging activities to do on their own, combined with large and small group assignments, etc.
3.) It’s also possible this year’s summer camps will be a hybrid of on-site and online, where we have small groups of kids coming at different times, so we are able to keep social distancing on location, yet keep everyone engaged and connected.
No matter what summer looks like, we’ll do our best to create a fun week for your kids to participate in! We are dedicated to keeping everyone safe, and continuing to provide a great camp experience. We know your kids need engaging activities now more than ever. Movie Makers has always celebrated your children’s creativity, fostered a passion for the arts, and focused on teamwork and fun. We’ll do our best to keep that going this summer.
We expect to have a clear idea of our summer plans and schedule by June 1.
Virtual hugs to all of our Movie Makers,

Movie Makers’ summer day camps are like a whole session in one week! Each week 18 young people will participate in the writing, directing, acting and camera work to create their very own movie.
Beginning only with the theme for that week (see our 2020 schedule here) 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’ll gather for a premiere party where we’ll watch our movie on the big screen. Each participant will be sent a link to download the movie. Our camps are separated by age. The younger group is for kids 6 – 10 years old. The older group is for young people 11 to 17. Summer camp sessions are themed. That means we know ahead of time what genre we will be working with.
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. Camp Hours are 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM each day. We offer extended care between 8AM – 5PM for those who need it.
