Put the "you" back in "YouTube" this summer by learning to craft your very own digital nature documentary. From start to finish, campers will learn techniques for organizing ideas, collecting footage, and editing content that will tell the story of their chosen nature-based topic. Each day will be split between being in nature capturing footage and spending time editing that footage to produce a short video.
On the last day of Lights, Camera, Nature Camp, parents are invited to an exclusive screening of the week's documentaries.
Note: Per Governor Cooper's order 204 of March 23, 2021, participants and staff will be expected to properly wear a mask over the nose and mouth where social distancing is not feasible outdoors and always when indoors. Exceptions include those under the age of 5, and those with medical or behavioral conditions or a disability that makes the person unable to put on or remove a face mask without assistance. If staff are addressing a group or seeking to communicate with someone who is hearing impaired, they may remove their masks for a period of time during the program and will maintain a 6' distance as much as possible.
Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation requires participants in any program or users of any facility to follow all CDC guidelines with respect to COVID19 and comply with all current Governor Executive Orders(GEO) in existence, and in addition comply with any guidelines established by the County.
