Media Arts Center San Diego (MACSD) Summer Youth Media Tech Camp Giveaway!

Media Arts Center San Diego        

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.

  1. Hi, I think my daughter (10) would love to attend one of these week long sessions. She is always fiddling with writing scripts, playing with my bloggie cam and making art, so I think exposing to her formal classes on producing video would be beneficial to her especially during the Summer break. Thanks for providing these cool giveaways to bloggers.

  2. My oldest is a storyteller (always was) and is always finding new ways to create her tales, from writing on the computer to putting on plays. I would love to introduce her to filmmaking basics so she has more tools at her disposal. If I’d been exposed to camps like this at a young age, who knows where I’d be now?

    And thanks Stacey for the giveaway…it’s a great one!


  3. My 10 year old would also love to attend. She has a passion for writing, art and making her own videos.

  4. Trinity (age 10) is always willing to learn more about people and herself and our unique ethnic, cultural, and linguistic. Your camp will be an important strategy for improving the quality of communication everywhere.

  5. Both my kids (ages 9 & 11) would love this but I think my son would really benefit from the structured classroom setting. He is already computer savy for his age and I’d love to see him learn skills outside of playing games. He is a budding cartoonist and so that’s the class I would enroll him in. He is on the shy side and I’d love to see something like this boost his confidence.

    • You won! Please email me all of your info: phone, address, etc. and I will forward it to the center for a virtual intro! CONGRATS!

  6. Between the movies he makes the songs he sings, the Lego’s he animates I can’t keep enough space on my media equipment. Austin (11) has performing mind. He sings at talent show, he creates still scenes with his Lego’s moving them slightly then films again. I love watching him ‘zone out’ as he desgings a shot for his Toby Keith video. He is boy through and through, we have story boards of battles energetic army attacks keep me guessing as we take a walk. Your program would offer an opportunity that is not offered in his school and a chance to explore media on an amazing level.

  7. Thank you for all entering! They chose Kristen! We will make the virtual introductions. Thank you ALL, again, so very much for entering!!

  8. Stacey, thank you again for the opportunity.

    I’m thankful for all the wonderful organizations you’ve introduced to me through your website.

    I’ll let you know how this goes!
