Camp Canon March Break camps are back by popular demand with a new series of youth photography programs. Canon’s Online Classes can take your child’s photography and video skills to the next level. Give your kids a great way to spend their March break while learning a joyful and lifelong hobby. An artistic outlet such as photography can help build patience, self-esteem and mental wellness.

Youth and teens can safely explore their creativity through photography while building valuable skills. Through this engaging online camp experience, they learn the basics of using their camera’s manual settings and increase their knowledge through photo challenges provided by talented instructors.

Each camp session starts with a 60-minute interactive Zoom session where expert instructors inspire photographers, give one-on-one feedback, and share tips and tricks. Photographers will then complete an associated 1-2 hour photo assignment from the safety of their home and on their own time consisting of portraits, nature photos and more.

Small group sizes (to a maximum of only 10 students) allow instructors to provide personalized attention and feedback so your child can truly get the most out of Camp Canon.
