In this two-week fun and educational day camp, participants work in small teams to plan, shoot, and edit short documentary videos. Campers will be provided access to and training with video cameras and Final Cut Pro editing equipment.  Final projects will be shown in a mini-festival for family and friends, uploaded to YouTube, and may also be featured at the Community Stories Film Festival to be held in Fall 2017.
The camp takes place from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm each weekday from June 26 – July 7 (except for July 4 which is an observed holiday). 

The camp has a maximum of twelve participants. Instruction for the camp will be in English. We will provide snacks and water, but participants should bring their own non-refrigerable lunches each day.
