Over the space of this day, using the power of digital photography, campers will learn how to take the simple ‘point and shoot’ photography technique to a new level. They will build an awesome 5-photo portfolio including high quality prints to impress family and friends. This is an ideal day program for campers who are beginning to explore what their cameras can do.

As you learn to be a keen observer, you might discover new and unexpected connections between yourself and the world!
