Camps

The Jacob Burns Film Center offers virtual camp sessions for winter break, and in-person camp sessions for spring break and summer. These weeklong experiences engage students in film and media-making activities led by our expert JBFC Educators.

Our spring and summer intensive day camps provide emerging young artists with the opportunity to choose from two dynamic experiences: making short films in Filmmaking Camp, or bringing their wildest ideas to life in Animation Camp. Classes are limited to 10 students per session, ensuring personal attention in a nurturing and supportive learning environment with tight-knit group collaboration. Each spring and summer session culminates in a screening, where campers will premiere their work on the big screen for family and friends at the JBFC Theater. 

Proof of a student’s full vaccination for COVID-19 and single booster dose must be provided by June 27.  Scholarships are available for participants with financial need.
