Let’s Make a Movie Camp
2019: *POSSIBLE SCHOOL STRIKE CAMP WEEK(S)*
– Camps will run on shortened schedule (October 7-10 & October 15-18)
– Should school resume in the middle of a camp week, refunds will be prorated ; and efforts will be made to complete the short film(s)
Our 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 appropriate behaviours, encourage social and emotional maturity, and, of course, put a huge push on individuality and creativity!
Our camp is designed by both a Certified OCT teacher and our resident “Film Experts”. Our camp is then implemented by trained and supported Film.ca staff with expertise in the field.
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: Between 3:45 pm & 4:00 pm
After care is available from 4pm-6pm for $10 per child, per day.
Please 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 about roles on a movie set, and camera and lighting techniques.
Throughout the week, kids will spend a lot of their time creating their movie with the help of their counselors, broken up with games, crafts and activity breaks. It is a lot of work to complete a film in just 1 week, but our Film Experts are there to guide our campers through the process.
Within 1 week of the end of camp, our Camper’s finished movie will be available for online download.
Parents may pre-order a lunch option from the theatre (available Monday – Thursday). Lunch option comes with pizza or hot dog, a ‘veggie of the day’, and a fountain drink or juice box.
Campers watch an age-appropriate movie on the big screen and receive a popcorn/drink combo on both Monday and Friday.
Cost: $275 per camper, per week
Cost for 4-day weeks (please see schedule): $225 per camper, per week
