Filmmaking Camps For Youth

Every summer, Docs In Progress offers middle school and high school students documentary filmmaking day camps which give youth participants the tools to express themselves through video in a fun and educational small group environment. We also offer train-the-trainer workshops and consultancies with schools and youth-serving nonprofits.

In 2018, we are excited to partner with the City of Takoma Park to hold youth documentary filmmaking camps over both the Spring Break and Summer at the Takoma Park Community Center:

March 26-30, 2018 - Spring Break Documentary Video Camp (one week from 9 am - 4 pm) for ages 12-18.
$200 ($150 for Takoma Park residents) Find out more.

July 30-August 10, 2018 - Summer Documentary Video Camp (two weeks from 9 am - 4 pm weekdays) for ages 12-18. 
$375 ($300 for Takoma Park residents) Find out more.

Registration for these camps opens February 12 (February 5 for Takoma Park residents) via the Takoma Park Recreation Department's website. To be notified once registration opens for the summer camp, send an e-mail to contact AT docsinprogress DOT org and we will add you to a special mailing list to get notified as soon as registration opens.
