Two Sessions in 2019

We are offering two Street Photography day camps this Summer 2019, partnering with the well-established Meridian School Summer Quest program in the Wallingford neighborhood. The camp was so popular and successful last year that two separate sessions will be offered for 2019. (See what we did last summer!)

Description: Have you ever wondered what it would look like if the world stood still? This week we’ll experiment with digital photography. We’ll freeze time by looking at both huge and tiny slices of the neighborhood, capturing the most interesting visuals around Wallingford on film. We will be learning, walking about each day in the neighborhood, and making new friends with each other. The week will culminate with a competition photography scavenger hunt and we’ll create a slideshow of your best work to show parents at the end of the last day. Your best photos will also be placed online to show your friends and family. This is an information-filled week wrapped in fun where you’ll explore concepts of movement, people, texture, light and how to tell a story with a picture. You will build confidence and new skills to take creative and interesting photos with your camera.
How do I register?
Registration is online through the Meridian School’s Summer Quest Program and opens February 18. Send us a note and we’ll help secure you a spot, reminding you as soon as online registration opens. Note, Street Photography is offered as an “Enrichment” program through Summer Question, details in their Enrichment Brochure for 2019 which lists Street Photography Session 1 and then Session 2.
[Our son] has been going to summer camps since he was five, so he attends about 8 to 10 different camps every summer. Your camp is one of the best ones he has attended. He learned so much this week and as a parent I appreciate the daily communication. The photos were absolutely wonderful in the slide show, and then to see the children’s smiling faces mixed in made we fall in love with your program. — Parent, Street photography Day Camp
