Camp gives teens a taste of Hollywood TV production
Does your teen have a passion for acting, filmmaking, or life in Hollywood?
Teenagers can experience what it’s like to work in TV production at the Ultimate Teen Challenge, a new sleepover camp being offered for tweens and teenagers aged 9 to 19.
The three-day camp will give young people the chance to take on a role in a production and learn the basics of how TV shows are created. From actors to directors, press agents to videographers, and screenwriters to set managers, they will explore a variety of different roles in the entertainment industry.
Days at the camp will be structured like a day in the real world of TV production. Kids will learn about the industry and try out different production roles in teams of seven to 13.
Vic Desanlis, camp director, says days at the camp will be long, but rewarding. “There is a lot of work involved in setting up a scenario and building up a production that leads to a final product,” he said. Campers will have the chance to showcase their work on the last day of camp, where parents will be invited to a presentation and awards ceremony.
Teens will also have time for recreational activities such as swimming in a lake, river or heated indoor pool, interacting with horses, playing ping pong or foosball and eating at a large outdoor barbecue.
The two campgrounds are located in Val-des-Lacs, about 30 minutes south of Mont Tremblant. The three-day camp costs $495. There is a limit of 39 spots per session. The camp dates are May 11-13, 15-17, June 11-13, 25-27, July 9-11, 16-18, 30- Aug. 1 and Aug. 20-22, 27-29.
