Let’s Make a Movie Camp
Kids will make their own movie from script to shoot to the final product in this fun five day camp at Film.Ca Cinemas!
March Break: March 13-17
Summer Camp: Sessions run July 3 – September 1
Our Let’s Make a Movie! Camp focuses on Film Creation and Movie magic for grades 1-8. Through our program we work to encourage greater self-confidence, role-model behaviour, social and emotional maturity, and, of course a huge push on individuality and creativity!
Our camp is designed by both a Certified OCT teacher and our resident “Film Expert,” graduated from Ryerson’s Media Production program. Our camp is then implemented by trained and supported Film.ca staff.
We have a minimum 1:10 ratio of adult to child allowing us to provide greater focus on your child’s enjoyment during the Let’s Make a Movie! Camp.

Drop off: Supervision begins at 8 am. Camp starts at 9 am.
Pick-up: 4 pm
After care is available from 4pm-6pm for $10 per child, per day. You must book after care in advance.
Kids will work on their movie’s story through storytelling games and activities, including storyboards and improv. They will learn to outline and script their story. We’ll learn all about roles on a movie set and camera and lighting techniques.
On Wednesday and Thursday, kids will spend most of their time shooting their movie with the help of their counselors, broken up with lots of games and activity breaks. Between Thursday and Friday, a Film.Ca team member will edit the movie together into the final cut. Friday is Party Day – kids will play games and go behind the scenes to see how a movie theatre works. We provide a fun lunch, and then watch a movie on the big screen. All campers will receive a DVD copy of their film.
Healthy snacks will be provided by us each day, and pizza lunch for all campers on Friday.
Parents may send lunch with child from Monday-Thursday OR pay for a pizza or hot dog lunch from the theatre (available Tuesday – Thursday).
Campers watch an age-appropriate movie on the big screen and receive a kids’ popcorn combo on Monday and Friday.
Cost: $250 per child, per week
