Camp Canon Summer Camps is calling you to join the fun this summer! Be a part of their summer camps for kids and teens as they return this year with youth photography programs that take your child’s photography and video skills to the next level. Summer is the ideal season to learn this exciting and rewarding hobby, while nature is in full bloom!
Give your child the ultimate summer experience with a camp teaching the skills to capture memorable, lasting memories while fostering their creativity and self-esteem. For example, they engage in photo challenges, partake in various classes and meet new friends along the way. It’s the most fun summer experience around!
Kids can learn from seasoned content creators, access small class sizes, and develop the foundational skills to capture memorable moments. Photo Foundations is great for beginners and Beyond the Basics builds on foundational photography concepts. Teens can discover new possibilities and become YouTubers thanks to their Video Production course, making memories that last.
Camp Canon’s group sizes stay small, with a maximum of only 10 students. This allows the classes’ expert instructors to provide personalized attention and feedback. As a result, each child feels more comfortable while also receiving a more thorough knowledge of the photographic techniques. Camp Canon Summer Camps also strives to create a nurturing, safe and enjoyable experience for attendees. As such, all of the selected instructors are experienced in working with youth and developing close-knit groups.
Each session is of 60-minute duration and is run live on Zoom where the budding photographers receive inspiration and one-on-one feedback, and to share tips and tricks with their classmates. Then they complete an associated 1-2 hour photo assignment consisting of portraits, nature photos and more, from the safety of their home and on their own time.
The online classes are naturally compatible with social distancing protocols. Zoom sessions happen in the home and all photo challenges can be completed at home or in your backyard. Furthermore, there is an opportunity for attendees to go to a local park with supervision or permission.
Perfect for beginners! In Photo Foundations, campers learn about basic photographic techniques and concepts. These include freezing movement, taking portraits of loved ones, and nature photography. Participants learn about composition, portraiture, depth of field, and manual settings. The class is intended to be easy and fun, and only as technical as attendees wish it to be.
Beyond the Basics builds on foundational photography concepts for creative youths and teens who have a good handle on the photography basics. This course expands their skills by learning lighting, composition techniques, and much more.
The Intro to Video Production courses is for campers who want to learn the fundamentals of video. Participants learn the skills to build their own high-quality production set-up with minimal effort. They are also able to produce, edit and publish their first video on their own YouTube channel!
