Photography Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Photography Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Photography summer camps give kids and teens the perfect opportunity to step behind the lens and snap a variety of different subjects. Opportunities are available for beginning, intermediate, and advanced photographers to receive age-appropriate instruction in framing, lighting, focus, development, retouching, and more. Most camps give boys, girls, and teens the opportunity to learn on traditional film cameras (many camps have their own dark rooms) and on more modern digital cameras. In some cases, photography summer camps go beyond still photos and let students create video and digital media projects. By discovering new techniques and working with skilled instructors, campers develop a life-long love of photography while forming strong friendships with other campers who share their passion and enthusiasm for photography!

Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Photography Summer Camps

Overnight photography summer camps typically run sessions of 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, or 7 weeks in length. The cost of photography summer camps varies by location, facilities, instructors, and affiliations. Weekly tuition rates can range anywhere from $350 to $1,350 per week.

Most sleep-away photography camps offer programs for children and teens between the ages of 6 and 18. Campers are typically grouped with children of comparable age and skill level.

Choosing the Best Photography Summer Camp

There are many subtle differences that distinguish each photography camp program. Do campers focus exclusively on photography, or are other activities offered? What types of cameras and equipment are available? Do campers try a variety of techniques, or do they focus on one? Are lessons taught by professionals, teachers, or students?

To help answer these questions and match your family with the appropriate photography summer camp, Choice Camps offers free consultations with Photography Camp Placement Experts. Just call our office at 617-264-0939 and we'll match your family with a great program today!
