Kids Bring Their Imaginations to Life at Summer Camp

by Sarah Soliman

Summer is right around the corner and that means so many things: vacation, baseball, grilling… After stocking up on charcoal and tickets to the Subway Series, summer also means camp and movies! You can cross those last two off your summer to-do list by signing up for The Picture House’s summer filmmaking camps! Starting the last week of July, we offer several different programs across our two locations that appeal to students of all ages.

First up is a Green Screen camp — make sure to bring your imagination! Students spend two weeks learning how to use equipment and filmmaking basics before going to space or the deepest part of the ocean with the aid of special effects! Running every weekday from July 31 – August 11 in Bronxville for Middle Schoolers.

Running concurrently is a Documentary Intensive for High Schoolers in Pelham from July 31 — August 4. The David Attenboroughs and Frederick Wisemans of tomorrow come together to make a short nonfiction film about a local nonprofit organization, and camp hours count towards students’ community service requirements.

Last, but not least, Page to Screen camp takes place in Pelham from August 7 — 18 and in Bronxville from August 14 — 25 for rising K-5 students! Spend a week immersed in classic children’s books and discussing how to adapt them, before devoting a week of camp to realizing your cinematic vision. 

All of our camps are run by professional filmmakers and great teaching artists who cater the programs to the interests of your kids. No filmmaking experience is required! So fasten the strap around your sunglasses, zinc up your nose, grab your imagination, and we’ll see you at summer camp!
