During these week-long summer camps, kids learn the fundamentals of filmmaking from filmmakers with real field experience. Grouped with students of a similar ability level, campers write, direct, shoot, and edit their own cinematic visions. After perfecting their films using Apple desktops and Final Cut, campers also learn the art of promotion and distribution through popular social media channels. At the end of the week, campers host a film festival for their peers and parents, showing off their handiwork for a supportive audience.
Camps run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day, and include breaks for lunch; campers may be dropped off as early as 8 a.m. and should be picked up no later than 6 p.m. All film-making levels welcome from beginner to advanced.
Since 1975, Camp Crusader has helped children escape those maddening summertime lulls. Here, youngsters can develop old interests or discover new hobbies while attending any number of themed day camps. They can wallop home runs and score goals during sports camps, take their first step toward Hollywood during filmmaking camps, and even learn how to code during Minecraft camps. In addition to their day-to-day activities, each camp comes with several perks, including daily lunches and complimentary early drop-off and late-pickup.
