Summertime is an opportunity to get creative when it comes to kids’ camp, and finding a summer program that is fun and educational can be tricky. However, PBC has it covered when it comes to artistic youngsters jazzed about film production. Below are three exceptional camps in the film production pool that PBC kids can dip their toes into this summer!
The Center for Creative Education in West Palm Beach knocks it out of the park with their Media Arts & Technology Summer Courses. Created over 20 years ago to strengthen the presence of the arts in PBC classrooms, the Center’s Teaching Artists work with thousands of children throughout the County. Making A Documentary allows campers to produce a film around the theme Florida: Where I Am. Campers collect stills and video footage that is edited into a short film. The finished projects are unveiled at a Premiere Event open to the public. For more information, visit cceflorida.org/summerc4courses.
G-Star School of the Arts in Palm Springs helps PBC students get a jump on a filmmaking career. The G-Star Film Camp offers a primer on professional filmmaking, giving kids the platform to create their own short films with assistance from some of G-Star’s most talented film students. At the end of the summer, all films are premiered in a gala showcase. For more details, visit gstarschool.org/camps.
Palm Beach State College is offering Intro in Filmmaking for ages 10-16, presenting future film pros with the opportunity to write a screenplay, scout locations, film, edit and exhibit their final masterpiece! Get more info about the program at palmbeachstate.edu/SYAP/film-production.aspx.
