Where youth work together to create movies and art, while learning life skills at summer camp!
Are you ready for summer camp? We offer week-long day camps for residents and visitors, both in person and virtually.
2023 was proudly the film camp’s 10th ANNIVERSARY YEAR of offering summer camps and classes to children and teens in Windsor-Essex, as well as those visiting the region in the summer!
Close to 500 youth have benefited from our summer camps and classes, most returning again and again. Because os the health risks, we closed during covid and offered a limited program last summer, but we are back in full force this July and August.
Working on a filmmaking crew teaches multidisciplinary life skills that benefit every participant, in any stage of life, while in school and for future career choices in any field.
Coupled with having fun at summer camp, filmmaking teams (crews) learn:
- Communication Skills (writing and verbal)
- Discipline and Patience
- Listening Skills
- Team Building Skills
- Time Management (Meeting Deadlines) Skills
- Public Presentation Skills
- Creative Writing
- How to Accept for the Opinions and Ideas of Others
- And more …
Without a doubt filmmaking camp is for EVERYONE, even children and teens who do not wish to pursue a career in digital media.
Below, you will find several links to our programs, the first of which is the summer camps and classes links below. There you will find many choices, and you can sign up for as many weeks as you wish.
In addition, adult programming can be found at windsorfilmmaking.com.
To prepare for online classes, take a moment to watch our video. We have trained instructors trained in ZOOM security procedures, e.g., creating a waiting room until the instructor arrives and checking attendance once the class begins. Our ZOOM Coordinator sends the class invitations (links) to parents’ inboxes to limit access to email and registration information.
