Movie-Making Camp

3, 2, 1 Action! Calhoun Movie-Making Camp goes into production! If your child enjoys making movies, playing and listening to music, drawing, writing and just plain being creative, then this camp is for your child.


Campers get the opportunity to write their own scripts and music, create their own settings, act, direct, do their own camerawork and edit as they make some wonderful claymation, stop-action, cartoon and live-action movies. Kids even get outdoors to film “on-location” in the neighborhood. The end result--some fun, funny and terrific movies!

For some much-needed physical activity, kids also spend some time playing in Calhoun's air-conditioned gym.
