Technology and Sunshine Meet At Summer Camp

Technology and Sunshine Meet at San Diego Summer Camp

By Arash Afshar

Imagine exploring cutting edge media technologies such as robotics, 3D modeling, animation, video production, game design, graphics and more from top rated instructors in beautiful San Diego. The Digital Media Academy Summer Camp at UCSD offers students this in a unique, one of a kind learning experience!

Through the UCSD Summer Camp, your child will not only have an educational summer, but also get to explore the outdoors in very non-traditional ways.

Skateboarding and Filmmaking is a weeklong summer camp at UCSD which combines an interest in film making along with the excitement of skateboarding!  Teens enrolled in this camp will have the opportunity to receive skateboarding instruction from experts, and film all the action.  Students will also learn editing and special effects skills when they take their skateboarding video into a state of the art classroom studio for post production.

For teens and kids who would rather spend time on the beautiful San Diego beaches, the Digital Media Academy offers a Surfing and Filmmaking summer camp at UCSD.  In partnership with La Jolla Surf Camp, parent company of Surf Divas, students will have the opportunity to improve their surfing skills while filming and editing their own video!

These are only two of the many fun opportunities students have at the UCSD summer camp.  For more information on these programs and more visit: summer camp information.

There are many reasons why year after year, students return to the Digital Media Academy summer camps. Fun classes, experienced professors, and the chance to make life-long friends are just a few of them!  Register for summer camp today and see for yourself!

Finding a Balanced Summer Camp: Technology and the Outdoors

What happens when a kid that loves skateboarding or surfing combines those outdoor activites with a filmmaking summer camp? Traditional summer camp + tech summer camp = FUN!

What are you looking for in a summer camp for your kids? One concern of parents sending children to computer-based summer camps is how active the experience will be. Will the whole day be spent in front of the computer? How can I balance my child’s interest in technology with my desire for them to have a physically active summer camp experience?

One option is to sign up separately for computer-based summer camps and for sports summer camps. The costs, however, can add up quickly. Digital Media Academy offers a summer camp alternative.  The solution is to consider summer camp programs that balance the two areas with very unique experiences.

Students looking to combine an interest in film making with an interest in skateboarding can participate in a weeklong summer camp with Digital Media Academy called Skateboarding and Filmmaking. Teens visit three skate parks and receive instruction from experts while also capturing the action on film. In a state of the art classroom studio, students learn to edit and integrate special effects to create a skateboarding video. This summer camp will be offered at University of California San Diego – UCSD in La Jolla from August 3-7, at Stanford University in the San Francisco Bay Area from July 20-24.  Families have the option of enrolling kids for day camp, or the residential sleepover summer camp option to stay in the dorms.  (This is a great pre-college experience for kids, especially kids travelling to the United States for an American summer camp experience!)

For the first time this summer, Digital Media Academy is also offering a Surfing and Filmmaking summer camp at UCSD for both teens and kids. Students improve surfing skills and create a video. The summer camp will be offered four times, beginning the weeks of July 13, 20, 27, and August 3, in partnership with the La Jolla Surf Camp, parent company of Surf Divas.

For enrollment now, please visit our registration page:  Digital Media Academy Summer Camp
