July 3-6 (4 day camp) 

Do you have a love of making music and want to develop your talents, even if you don’t play or                  sing? This is a great camp to get your words and melodies out there. Explore melody, harmony,          arranging, and lyric writing in a supportive and creative atmosphere. End of week showcase.
Explore the concepts of creative vision, composition, and shooting techniques through the lens                of digital cameras (learn how to use your own, or borrow one of ours). Campers will experiment with traditional and contemporary photography techniques as they explore the inspiring visual surroundings Ross Creek has to offer, and get inspired by some of the great photographers from around the world! End of week gallery.

July 8-13 

This camp is perfect for film lovers who want to tell their stories through movies! Campers will              work on a live-action film, with a focus on both pre- and post-film production. Participants will be given the opportunity to write, act, direct, and edit under the guidance of a professional filmmaker. End of week Film Fest!

This workshop gives emerging young artists the opportunity to explore their creativity and artistic skills through work in a variety of media and techniques – from drawing to paint to   printmaking to sculpture. Campers will draw inspiration from the works of a range of artists and create work that will be showcased at the end of week art gallery.

July 15-20

Learn an architectural vocabulary while designing and creating various one-of-a-kind structures.          Students will use a variety of materials including clay, foam core, cardboard, and much more to                 bring their designs to completion. End of week showcase.
This exciting program provides an introduction to the world of fashion. Fundamentals of design              provide the basis for campers to create sketches, and to illustrate, design, and execute projects in fabric from start to finish. End of week fashion show.

July 22- 27

Try your hand at various styles and techniques of animation. Campers will work in small groups to create their own micro-sets and characters and bring them to life through the magic of film. End of week Film Fest.
At Ross Creek, we’ve created an amazing program to inspire and guide you to tell your own stories. Whether you love writing poetry or prose, or hope to try writing for the first time, join us this summer as we laugh, discuss and write, discovering what it means to be a writer… and what it means to create. End of week showcase.

July 29- Aug 3

Dive into the world of street art and create your own graffiti-influenced art. Inspired by              internationally recognized artists such as Banksy, Keith Haring, and others, campers will learn about graffiti culture and the significance of public art. Campers will design their own stencils and create their positive graffiti! End of week gallery.
Explore the art of acting, and meet friends to share the stage! Discover acting games that will help you grow as a performer. Sessions are high energy, and campers will develop a range of acting skills. An ensemble approach and a supportive environment ensure everyone has the opportunity to excel, and be ready for an end-of-week performance!
