The Best Summer Film and Animation Camp For Kids In NYC
CinemaKidz offers the best Creative Summer Camp for kids ages 6-14. Our trained teaching artists guide campers through the fundamentals of filmmaking and creative expression. Whether your child has a passion for acting, costume design, using technology, or creating art with their hands, our camps are designed for everyone and every interest. Our campers are encouraged to trust their imaginations and refine their unique vision at each stage of the creative process. “Active Learning All Day”
“A Child-Driven, Hands On Program” Our camps are age-appropriate and hands on, where children take the creative reigns and learning-by-doing, in a team-oriented and encouraging environment! Camps run from 9am to 4pm, with an optional extended day ‘til 530pm (additional cost applies). We offer several themes each week, and at the end of the day, children get to see what awesome projects the other camps have created that day. We take fun snack breaks, and go outside everyday with structured active play, rain or shine. Sign up for one week, or experience all the themes and receive a discount

Cinessentials: creative filmmaking
In Cinessentials, children will learn the fundamentals of filmmaking in a positive, creative, and team-oriented setting. Campers are encouraged to stretch their imagination and experiment with the basic techniques of filmmaking. Children will work together in a collaborative environment to make several short films.
Every child will have a chance to be the Director, Costume Designer, Camera Person, Lighting Technician, and Script Supervisor. Children work on original movie ideas, either writing them down or simply drawing out their visual tail.
Once the film is in the can, the children will work in teams to edit the film and soundtrack using professional programs including iMovie, Final Cut Pro and more. We make the process easy for all ages, and most importantly FUN!
Every session concludes with a film screening in the theater room, followed by an Academy Award Ceremony. Each child gets a copy of the finished film. Your child will have the experience of a lifetime making new memories with new friends!
Price: $550/week (group/sibling discounts available)
1-week session: M – F, 9a, – 4pm

Adventures in Animation
Come explore the many techniques of stop-motion animation in our week long Animation-Bonanza camp! Our campers will have an opportunity to create abstract and narrative tales with a fun wide range of materials including: Legos, Play-doh, paper, cardboard, wood, found objects and more! We teach our movie-makers how to safely handle these materials and create amazing props for their films.
Campers will learn new skills while having fun! The simple, hands-on technology allows children autonomy in the movie making process.
