Filmmaking Camps For Youth

Every summer, Docs In Progress offers 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 2019, we will be hosting three youth camps, one at our new space in downtown Silver Spring and the others at the Takoma Park Community Center.
