The film and video game industries are among the most profitable industries in media, entertainment, and the performing arts. There is a growing need for talented creators and designers in this fast-paced, “High Tech” world. Fit Kids of America offers an innovative program for students seeking technology skills that lead to rewarding careers in the entertainment industry.
The camp is limited to 150 students and will give its participants (ages 9 through 14) a unique opportunity to receive hands-on instruction and explore the thriving career paths in:
- FILM MAKING, DIGITAL CAMERA AND LIGHTING
- VISUAL STORY TELLING
- DIGITAL EDITING
- ACTING – DIRECTING
- VIRTUAL GAME DESIGN
- GRAPHIC DESIGN AND ANIMATION

Throughout the Summer participants will work in groups to plan and produce 1 short film that will be celebrated and featured in a screening open to CREW, FACULTY, FAMILY AND FRIENDS. They will also create their own original game concept into a playable digital prototype. The DVDs of their creations are theirs to keep.
The camp’s activities will help students to develop their abilities at systems thinking, an essential foundation for better understanding technology, build self-confidence and leadership skills.
