Choosing the right cartooning camp for your child

What’s the best way to choose the right cartooning camp for your child? First, think more seriously about them: their age, experience, interests, and goals. 

  • Is your child aiming to just learn the basics of cartooning? Or are they looking to take an important step towards a career in this field? 
  • Do they want to focus on a specific area of cartooning, such as comic book illustration? Or are they looking to acquire a more general background?

Then, of course, you should look closely at the camps themselves. Talk to directors and staff, and visit camps whenever possible. Learn as much as you can about each camp to gauge whether it’s the right fit for your child.

Here are some key questions to get you started:

  • What courses/programs do you offer?
  • What level (e.g., introductory, intermediate, advanced) are they at?
  • What exactly do they cover?
  • What’s your teaching/instructional approach?
  • Do children work more independently or collaboratively?
  • What skills can I expect my child to come away with?
  • What qualifications do the instructors have?
  • What facilities and equipment do you use?

You may then need to delve deeper. For instance, if it’s a camp focusing on visual storytelling, you may ask the following questions:

  • How do you teach visual storytelling?
  • Is there a specific approach you use?
  • Does my child need any specific background in this area?
  • How might this skill help my child?
  • What careers might this skill provide the basis for?
