      Hi there, I'm new to the forum but have been following Videomaker articles and forums for the past few years. I work as Training Coordinator at a public access station and will be teaching several summer camps that teach video production concepts to kids. I'm looking for some new ideas for hands-on activities for beginners. Our station has always done things such as "video alphabet" or "video scavenger hunt" but I want to shake things up a little. Any other ideas out there? Thanks and I'm happy to be a part of the Videomaker community!

      That is fantastic let me be the first to thank you for giving back in a meaningful way; inspiring anyone, but especially youth, is one of the greatest things we can do. That said there are tons of things to get the kids involved when I was actively doing drama; we had some warm up games we would play they have many names, and variations, but here are some: park bench "Link to rules"

      zip zap zoom "link to rules", and here are some others: http://dramaresource.com/games

      Drama games are a fun way to get a group of any age into on the fly storytelling it forces us to let out the creative side. I have played some of these with full grown adults, and it still amazes me what we can come up with when we aren't allow to over think or "chicken out".


      I don't know what all you will be covering in your sessions, but here are some videos about storytelling I just found these today https://vimeo.com/64207362

      it is a four part series, and I highly recommend it. Because at the end of the day if a video doesn't have story it is just a bunch of fancy lights, and sound.


      Best if luck, and if you need any more ideas or something more specific let me know.

      Thanks Justin, very helpful! There's definitely that creative side that people tend to forget about.

      I think it is a great way to deal with your summer vacation with learning some effective skills. Nowadays, many less students think to cash their vacations or summer camps. My eldest son is busy in searching for some learning summer camps online via https://www.courseworkhelpdeal.co.uk/ & other learning hubs. I have shown him thumbs up for thinking positive about his future.
