Summer Media Production Camps

Do you want your kids to take a break from watching TV and playing video games this summer? AIM Media Production Camps are a fun and creative summer activity.

Campers learn to:

• Tell a story   
• Collaborate with others
• Learn the basics of video production
• Produce a movie that will air on cable television and on the web
• Become well-informed media consumers

AIM’s Media Production Camps are for youth ages 8-13. Working together with the guidance of specialized instructors and media professionals, participants will develop a story idea, write a script, shoot footage, and edit their own short production. In the process, they will be introduced to the basic concepts of media literacy and critical thinking. The resulting short movie will be broadcast on Arlington Independent Media television channels in Arlington County, Comcast 69 and Verizon 38 throughout the year and will be prominently featured on our website and YouTube channel. 

We offer several sessions during the summer; each one is limited to nine participants. Sessions run Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. All camps take place at AIM's facility, located at 2701-C Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, VA.
