Photography Camp: June 23 - 28, 2019
Rising 9th – 12th Grade
Auburn Youth Programs partners with Cameragraphics to offer Photography Camp! This hands-on camp is designed for high school students (9th - 12th grade) who have an interest in the photography field. No prior experience is required and the program can accommodate every skill level. The curriculum includes darkroom time, slide lectures, assignments, field trips, digital photography and guest visits. Students will work with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities while receiving hands-on instruction from professionals in the field.
Campers are encouraged to bring their own DSLR camera to use throughout the week. For students who do not have one, a limited amount of cameras are available to borrow while at camp. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to borrow a camera for camp.
Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.
