Camp F/X Zombies
Age Group: rising 4th-7th graders
Cost: $340/ week (Mon-Fri 9-4pm)
This is the first camp that was ever offered by Club SciKidz! Recently revised and more exciting than ever, campers learn the science behind Hollywood’s special effects with a “Zombies” twist. Activities will demonstrate concepts related to light, sound, perception, illusion, and model building. One of the great features of this camp is that all campers will create (and take home!) a movie using techniques in Claymation and Stop-Motion Animation. Lessons include plot development, story boarding, set building, filming, and sound effects.
Campers will also learn various professional Zombie make-up techniques working with the same materials used by professional make-up artists. They will simulate cuts, bruises, artificial blood, and old age. Is there a future movie director living in your house? This is a camp your child won’t want to miss! A $15 lab fee is included in the camp tuition due to the extraordinary amount of supplies for this camp.
**Please have your camper bring an 8GB USB Drive and an old button down shirt to camp**
Registration closes at 11:59pm Friday before this camp begins. For late registrations, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Late registration fee of $20 will apply.
