YouTube Stars (Grades K-8) – Summer Camp – August 7-11, 2023
August 7, 2023 @ 9:00 am - August 11, 2023 @ 4:00 pm$40.00 – $349.00
Does your child want to be the next YouTube superstar? Let us show them the ropes! This camp teaches real-world video production and animation skills. Kids will learn how to:
- Stay safe on the Internet and in their videos
- Plan their videos and animations, including storyboarding and scripting
- Record and edit their videos
- Film stop-motion animations
- Export videos for YouTube
Each child will make a stop-motion animation and at least one “let’s play” (gameplay/game walkthrough) video on a computer. The rest of their videos will be done without computers. Important: Kids will spend about 1.5 days making gaming videos on computers. They will not spend the entire week making gaming videos. Please set their expectations accordingly.
You can see examples of videos kids have already made on our YouTube channel.
Important: Each student needs a USB headset with a microphone for this class. We very highly recommend this one: https://amzn.to/3CJVD2. We know that particular headset works every time with our hardware and software. If you want your child to use a different headset, please make sure it’s USB, and not 3.5mm headphone and microphone jacks. If your child isn’t using the recommended headset, your child might have to use the mic on the computer (background noise, ick!). Please ensure your child’s headset is clearly labeled with their name on it, and bring it to and from camp each session.
There is a $10 lab fee for this camp.
