About Media Production Teen Camp

Media Production Teen Camp is a new camp experience that puts campers at the leading edge of the exciting and innovating digital media industry. Campers will learn to use professional equipment such as cameras and camcorders, computer editing software, audio recording software, lights, and more. The program will lead youth through the many aspects of video production and digital journalism. Specialist instructors will guide and mentor campers through various activities while assisting them as they apply their newly-learned skills to the creation of culminating media projects. Campers will gain confidence, socialization skills, and team-working abilities as they collaborate with their peers to take inspiration from production to presentation. Teens who participate in this camp experience will have the opportunity to take part in several different activities, including:

  • Scripting, Storytelling, and Storyboard Creation
