Media Arts Center San Diego (MACSD) expanded their Summer Youth Media and Tech Camps into two tracks of multi-media interest. Media Arts Center San Diego promotes access to film and video as tools for community self-expression and social change and supports the professional development of media artists. If I were to go back in time and this had been around, this would have been on the top of my list of day camps to attend, hands down! I can not wait to take the kids here this summer to explore and have some hands-on experience! To celebrate the expansion, they are giving us one session of camp to give away to one lucky reader for FREE!
Each week-long session (for kids ages 9-14) explores various elements of filmmaking and media production and students create something new everyday in a fun and collaborative environment. The camps include demonstrations and hands-on projects like stop-motion animation, learning how to film & edit, and using a green screen. On the last day, parents are invited to a screening to see their camper’s hard work!
Camp runs for nine, individual week-long sessions: from June 25 – August 26.
Here are some videos from past campers.
