Virtual Summer Camp

Camp will be held remotely. All you need is a smart device with the Zoom Application downloaded, your imagination, and simple, easily found craft materials from around your house.

Camp days will be a mix of online teacher instruction and offline work to get the creativity flowing and everyone out from in front of the screen.

So come make new friends and create a remote, one of a kind show. We will write, rehearse, and film our camp throughout the week that will then be edited together for a screening for parents, family, and friends to watch together via Zoom. The video will be given to families at the end of the week as a memory to treasure forever. 

All experience levels welcome.

Families will receive instructions on how to login for classes following sign up.

Alongside CCT teaching artists, students will collaboratively write their own suspense/thriller drama packed good characters gone bad, tense standoffs, and rogue agents with twist after twist after twist. Throughout the week, we will record then edit the film together with dynamic shots via Zoom. At the end of the week, we will have a red carpet screening on Zoom where paparazzi from all over the world can join us.
