Description: Have you ever wondered what it would look like if the world stood still? Do you want to really get to know your camera? Do you want to know the best settings for different kinds of scenes? In this week-long camp, we’ll freeze time by looking at both huge and tiny slices of the neighborhood, capturing the most interesting visuals around Wallingford. Each day we will a different theme, look at inspirational photographs, and master a technical camera skill. We will be learning through photography games, walk-about-missions, and being inclusive while making new friends with each other. The week culminates 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 a learning-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 and come away with creative and interesting photos that you created!

[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 Mom, Street photography Day Camp
