To create a world of girls that are not afraid to become innovators, idea makers and game changers. Our goal is for something powerful to happen at our summer camps. Something that doesn’t happen at other camps. Sure, our girls will have fun. Actually, they’ll have a ridiculously crazy amount of fun.  They’ll go home glowing, grimy and wiped out.  But amidst the frenzy, they also learn something with the potential to change them—and the world—profoundly. They learn how to fail. Not in a humiliating or dispiriting way. But in a self-assured way, that helps turn them into hardy, risk-taking creators, innovators  and future game changers. 

Stop Motion Animation Overview

In our Stop Motion Animation camp girls will get to bring all their animation ideas to life! Girls will create their own characters, settings and scenes during their small group collaborations using LEGO clay, toys or paper. They’ll get to create or recreate amazing movie scenes using our special software and sound effects. At the end of the camp session girls will go home with an amazing animated movie to share. Movies will be send via text in the days after camp ends.
