    Animation summer camps and March break camps are an amazing experience!

    By and large, animation camps allow you to gain a strong foundation in the fundamentals of animation.  Typically, curriculum at these camps and programs will follow from these topics and principles:

    • Essential animation principles starting with understanding how to portray movement and the application of basic physics
    • Software training
    • Modeling from introductory concepts like creation of rudimentary creatures and objects to more advanced techniques of character creation, such as the addition of skins, etc.
    • Texture creation and colour selection
    • Use of music and sound, integrated with animated motion

    Listed above, you'll find camps focused on this, as well as camps that offer animation as part of more varied programming. Many dedicated animation camps also offer more advanced training in deeper concepts or in specialized sub-disciplines like comic book animation or designing computer graphics. You'll also find related camps like kids' robotics camps or video game design camps that offer animation training related to their focus on those disciplines.
