WHAT TO EXPECT
On this camp, you and your classmates will be a filmmaking team to make a nature documentary. Like real explorers, you will spend time in beautiful natural scenes, discover amazing animals and plants, record what you find, and pull it together to make a story.
Your final films will include a sustainability call to action, which means that you will share an important message with the audience in a way that helps inspires them to make a positive change.
By the end of the camp, you will share your nature documentary at a judged film screening.
Along this journey, you will develop skills that will be incredibly useful in your personal lives, education, and later work, such as teamwork, persuasiveness, communication, creativity, technology skills, and global awareness.
Each of you will step into a different role in the documentary team. Will you be the director that comes up with the creative vision, a plant or animal expert who guides the science of the documentary, the camera operator that takes the shots, or one of the other many roles?
