Please note that students will be required to bring their own iPad for this camp, however, we are happy to rent out our iPads for a small upcharge.

Day 1


On this opening day, students will learn what it takes to create an animated film. Students will come up with their own ideas, storyboard, craft sets, create their own clay characters, then make it all come alive by taking hundreds of photos. In post-production, they will edit their movies, add music, and create their own sound effects!

Day 2

Lego Stop-Motion!

Day two is all about taking Lego minifigures on wild adventures! Students will create their own Lego sets and experiment with green screens for the first time, allowing them to put any background they wish in their films. New animation concepts will be introduced including adding special effects, giving the characters voices, and making title and end screens. 

Day 3

Creator Camp Oscars!

Students will choose their favorite film from the past few days to be presented at the Creator Camp Oscars! In preparation, your child will create their own movie trailer and movie poster. When the red carpet is rolled out, the animation and filmmaking camp will come together to view each other's masterpieces. Campers will also receive an Oscar award and goody bag for their hard work!
