Immerse your child in the world of film.
From judging and helping select the shorts we show
each week at Cinema Circus, to watching and studying various
film genres, to making a short film of their very own, your child can do it all at our hands-on, experiential summer camp.

Campers will learn how to use video cameras, microphones, 
green screens, iPads, and animation and editing software to bring their creative visions to fruition.
Each week has its own focus, to give every child a chance to shine. The super-inquisitive child will thrive as an interviewer during our Documentary week. The artist will develop and advance their craft during the Animation week. The storyteller or performer will take flight during the Live Action week.
The Circus is the perfect backdrop for our camp,
ensuring that there is always a little time for
plate spinning on the lawn, face painting
in the sunshine, and clowning around
under the big top.

This camp is EVERYTHING!
