Camp i.imagine

Digital and film photography for teens of all experience levels

Our summer camp is designed for teens grades 6-9 to have a blast while learning how to create amazing photographs! Learn about exposure, light, artistic composition and much much more.  Beyond the camera, students learn about themselves and how to tell important stories that sometimes have no words. Camp i.imagine instructors work with students in a group setting and one on one to give every camper an individualized experience to take your photos to the next level!

Don't have a DSLR digital camera?  We've got you covered!  Each student will be issued a digital DSLR camera kit to keep and take home during the  week that they attend camp.
