REVISED!! Camp Special Effects: Zombie Edition Ages 9- 12
Price varies by location
This is the first camp ever offered by Club SciKidz! Newly revised, with a zombie theme, and more exciting than ever, campers learn the science behind Hollywood’s special effects. Activities will demonstrate concepts related to light, sound, perception, illusion, and model building. One of the great features of this camp is that all campers will create (and take home!) a movie using techniques in Claymation and Stop-Motion Animation. Lessons include plot development, story boarding, set building, filming, and sound effects.
Campers will also learn various special effects make-up techniques working with the same materials used by professional make-up artists. They will simulate cuts, bruises, artificial blood, and old age. Is there a future movie director living in your house? This is a camp your child won’t want to miss! Please have your moviemaker bring a 4G Flash Drive to camp to save their movie.

Forms & Resources
Getting ready for camp should be an exciting process for your entire family. Many families attend multiple camps throughout the summer. For your convenience we have posted our Welcome Packet in the form of a parent newsletter on-line in PDF format. This document covers everything from Club SciKidz policies to camp dates and security issues.
The Welcome Packet mentions an ‘Administration of Medicine Form’. If your child requires any medications during the time he/she is at the camp, please download this form and print it, fill in the required information, and bring it with the child on the first day of camp.
Online Camp Evaluation
After camp is completed, please take the time to complete our online survey. The survey is instrumental in providing feedback so we can continue to make Club SciKidz the best science and technology camp it can be!
