Tell your own animated stories with FilmScene! At Animation Camp, campers imagine and create their own animations, totally from scratch. Each day campers will watch and learn about the principles of animation and different animation styles (GIFs, claymation, light & shadow puppets, hand-drawn cartooning and more) and then make their own animated short films and videos! 

For our 2021 Summer Animation Camp, FilmScene is offering both in-person and virtual opportunities. All campers will receive the same lessons and instructions, with two on-site instructors and one dedicated virtual instructor. Camp includes learning with iPads, Stop Motion Pro software and a wide range of materials from paper to clay.
Each student will be provided with digital copies of their work, and all campers and their families are invited to an end of summer celebration on Saturday, August 14. Details to be announced.

Up to 20
campers per week-long session, ages 7 through 15 may register for virtual camp. Camp supply kits are provided to virtual campers for pickup, but technology will not be provided. Classes are held via
Zoom, which requires a device with internet connection and web camera. Each day includes stretching and snack breaks.


Virtual tuition must be paid in full at time of registration. Full and partial scholarships are available through the generous support of Hills Bank and Trust Company. Please email with your request for consideration.

A deposit is required to secure in-person registration, and a full fee is required to secure virtual registration. This deposit/fee is refundable until May 1. After May 1, deposits/fees are only issued in the case of illness or emergency. For cancellations made at least four weeks before your camper's class begins, refunds will be issued at the discretion of FilmScene staff, less a $50 cancellation fee per camper. For cancellations made less than four weeks before your camper's class begins, no refunds will be issued (unless in the case of illness and emergency). Any tuition paid for the class, minus the $50 cancellation fee will become a FilmScene credit usable only toward a future FilmScene Animation Camp. Any difference in cost from the new class will not be refunded. No credits or refunds will be given for cancellations occurring within two business days of the start date of the class; similarly, no credits or refunds will be given once camp sessions begin. If for whatever reason FilmScene must cancel a camp session at any point, full refunds will be given to all registrants. Virtual registration and in-person registration is not exchangeable
