Due to COVID-19 restrictions and our concerns for customer and staff safety, we have only limited availability of in-person camps. If there is not camp available in your area, we recommend our online courses, now available worldwide. Students can make new friends, complete creative tech challenges and learn from live tutors in small groups – all from the comfort of their homes.
In this action-packed week, teens learn the basics of content creation, including video production - storyboarding, filming and editing - so that they can start populating their YouTube channel with their bright ideas.

You will storyboard, script, film yourself or your screen, discover the YouTube video editing tools and work in teams to publish eye-catching content.
By the end of the course, students will have their own YouTube channel with original content and the tools to keep creating!
