Organizations with Animation programs (TBD)


The strength of dedicated animation camps

The best animation camps offer deeply enriching, structured training that delves into all aspects of animation for film, games and other media.

Camps offers a wide variety of curriculum but here's a look at some things offered at some of the featured camps listed below

  • Training in principles of animation. This includes developing or deepening an understanding of movement, timing, and understanding physical effects of weight, etc.
  • Training in animation software. The contemporary software of choice is Maya software, as seen in a number of camps listed here.
  • Modeling might begin with the creation of simple creatures and objects with primitive shapes and extend to more advanced techniques and artistry.
  • Motion animation allows campers to work with key frames to learn motions simulation.
  • Character design and construction is another key component of animation. Camps that specialize in animation will teach teens the basics of skeleton creation, adding skins and specialized training in things like inverse kinematics.
  • Colour and texture selection. You'll learn how to define colour, and apply reflectivity as well as features such as transparency or translucency. Texture creation applied to creatures and other objects is another advanced technique taught at these camps.
  • Integration with music and sound.

Other aspects of animation are numerous and complex, of course, but there is much you can learn. Animation summer camp has many benefits, no matter what stage of learning you're at. Some of the training in animation camps has overlap with learning you'll get at other kids' programs like robotics summer camps and STEM camps for kids. See other pages including video game design camps, kids' programming camps, AI camps, and cartooning camps.
