International Cooking with Jill Nicol
Young chefs will creatively cultivate their interest in food, while also exploring cultures from around the globe. Throughout the week, participants will spend time preparing meals from different regions of the world and discovering those cultures as they experiment with new ingredients. Students will also learn about kitchen safety and a variety of cooking techniques. The week will culminate with an exhibition and celebration in which students will share their culinary creations.
Film Making with Daniel Fales
In this week-long film-making camp we will dive into making movies and videos ourselves. Join us as we learn the art of video production and film-making. Participants will be the directors, the lighting crew, the film crew, the acting talent, and the post-production crew. You will work in teams to take on projects that will allow you to practice and learn skills such as shot design, framing, camera movement, lighting, storytelling, editing, and post production.
