Welcome to Film Camp for Kids & Youth. Our program began in summer 2012 as a research project, and quickly developed into a program that attracts youth and their families into downtown Windsor. We are a non-profit, community-based program.
Our many programs operate out of a 6,000 sq ft studio at 586 Ouellette, which can be viewed on our Facebook page. Special thanks to the Petretta Construction for the donation of this great location!
Additionally, we are very appreciative of the support we receive from Downtown Windsor business owners who open their doors to our filmmakers, photographers and artists. We employ 15-17 student staff each summer through Canada Summer Jobs who lead walking tours and supervise real-life “on set” experiences. Our filmmaking participants make approximately 40 shorts each summer, and the array of “sets” in the neighbourhood makes downtown Windsor a perfect location for our program.
Our 2020 summer camps begin on July 6 and ends on August 28. Registration availability and dates depend upon age and interests and will be open soon. Registration is open for the 2020 March Break Camp
We have a divided space, including a green screen room, and all of the equipment and/or supplies necessary for filmmaking, photography, art, storytelling and more. Our programming includes all aspects of filmmaking as well as art classes.
