Welcome to Film Camp for Kids & Youth. Our program began in summer 2012 as a research project, and quickly developed into a year-round program that attracts youth and their families into downtown Windsor. We are a non-profit, community-based program that is open to the public.
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 6th and ends on August 28th. Dates for summer 2020 have been posted. However, while on-line registration forms can be “submitted” to that camp spaces can be reserved in advance, we ask that families not to pay until we confirm that the day and overnight camps will be offered – due to COVID-19. We are currently planning to on-line classes, which will be posted in May.
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 photography, animation and visual art classes.
