Take a behind the scenes look at Creative Video Day Camp in this Video published  by the Office of Community Engagement at Concordia University.


CREATIVE VIDEO MARCH BREAK CAMP

Our March break camp is perfect for creative youth aged 6-13 looking to become part of a film production crew! In a one week session, campers learn how to develop a story into a movie that they will film and act in! Campers can either rotate project roles (spending time as director, camera operator or actor) or choose to specialize in one particular area. No prior film-making experience is necessary!

FILMING

MORE THAN A MOVIE CAMP

Campers are also encouraged work on independent projects where they explore different media platforms like  stop motion, animation, video, photography, digital arts in order to create their very own project from beginning to end.

IS THERE A CAMPER CODE OF CONDUCT?

The safety of each individual in the program is Creative Video Day Camps top priority. Each camper must recognize their personal responsibility to learn and follow at all times the rules and acceptable behaviour are discussed at the beginning of each camp session. All of the children are made aware of what is expected of them. Rules include but do not limit:

  • Zero tolerance for violence and or bullying
  • Use of appropriate language
  • Ask permission to leave the designated camp area
  • Cooperation and respect towards leaders, C.I.T’s, and other campers

Although our goal is to be conflict free, occasionally children may still become frustrated and disagree with a leader or another child at camp. If a child’s behaviour becomes unsafe or unacceptable, discipline is necessary. If these situations arise, the following actions will be taken:

  • Step 1:  Verbal Warning
  • Step 2: Time Out
  • Step 3: Parent Involvement
  • Step 4: Removal from Camp

If problems persist or the behaviour is severe enough such as causing intentional harm to others or consistent disruptions of camp activities, the child will be removed from the program for the day or the rest of the week.* No refunds will be issued for children dismissed from camp or withdrawn after parents were notified either verbally or in writing about behaviour issues. Any questions, comments, concerns may be directed to Jay 514-808-9053
