A high level of energy and a passion for photography will be essential in your role. At the end of each session, interns create a summary video to post on our YouTube site.

Each summer, interns have a video or photography project that they are required to complete before the last session and can be used in an official internship connected to their education.

Requirements: good experience with a DSLR camera for taking photos and videos, knowledge of simple photo and video editing software; love working with kids.
Camp will have computers, Adobe Photoshop, and Premier online editing software that interns will use during the summer for their work. Camp also owns DSLR cameras and will provide them for interns. If you prefer to use your own photography equipment, you may, but at your own risk if it is damaged during the summer.
