Stop-Motion Camp

Avengers Stop Motion Summer Camp

Create an Avengers stop-motion animation movie!

Campers will use LEGO bricks, LEGO mini-figures, and video-capture software to script scenes, direct their figures, and watch their movie come to life. Students will get a chance to express their creativity by developing stories with their favorite crime-fighting characters, such as Black Panther, Iron Man, and Captain America. Together we'll learn how to make characters move naturally on screen, how to add cool artificial sounds, and even overlay explosions! Stop Motion movies produced at camp will be emailed home to share with friends and family after the camp is done.

Last year our Stop Motion camps sold out. Act fast - you won’t want to miss out this year!

Camp Hours
9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Age Requirements
Stop-Motion Camp is open to children ages 8-12. Must be age 8 by June 1, 2019.

What to Bring
Dream Enrichment will provide all stop-motion animation supplies, including webcams and laptops. All you will need to pack is a water bottle, lunch, and a snack. We are a nut-free camp, so please keep this in mind when packing a lunch and snack. Thank you!

Camp Sneak Peeks

Green Screen

Introducing the Green Screen

We know that every camper starts out at a different skill level and will progress at their own pace. To challenge students who advance quickly, we'll cover techniques related to green screening, which will open up our Avengers movie up to even bigger and better effects!

Foam Crabs

Basics of Production

Campers will write and produce their own stop-motion animation LEGO Avengers movie using minifigures, bricks, and changeable backgrounds. We'll discuss the number of frames needed to move a character smoothly across the frame, and then advance into techniques such as overlaying sound effects.

My 9 year old just completed his 2nd week of camp. The first week was a computer coding camp, and this week was a stop motion/animation camp. I'm not exaggerating when I say that he came home everyday energized from camp activities and their projects. He hugged me and thanked me for signing him up. What's great about that is he whined in the car on each Monday about going to camp from 9am-2pm, and having to go 2 weeks in a row. But after his first day each week, he couldn't wait to go back!

The instructors each week were wonderful and I could tell the kids related to them. I know from reading about Dream Enrichment that it's a small business, so I couldn't be happier to give them such a well-deserved, great review. If your child(ren) is/are into computers, I highly recommend sending him/her to a Dream Enrichment camp.
