Creative kiddos ages 8 to 12 who are eager to learn more about photography are invited to join us for March Break 2023 Photo Camp for Kids! Led by teaching artist and Founder of Project Kids & Cameras, Diana Nazareth, she uses exploration-based photo activities and challenges in the clubhouse and on photo walks in the park to introduce kids to the principles of photography and visual expression. Campers will go on photo scavenger hunts, learn about composition, vantage points, elements of design, macro photography, and so much more in this hands-on, super fun photo camp/workshop style program designed for the young budding photographer. We also mount an insanely great pop-up photo exhibit in time for parent pick-up on the last day of camp!
