We are doing something BIG and with PURPOSE!
Content Creator Summer K.A.M.P.
*Only 12 students per week for 2021*
In our fifth year hosting this program in Downtown Decatur, we will be creating content for our new kids TV show!
It's going to be YouTuber K.A.M.P. for every week of our program this year. We hope to keep it simple and impactful for the small class sizes, with participants receiving more individual attention and making the kinds of YouTuber videos that they want to make.
In this way, students can experience their choosing, in editing, acting, prop designs, stop motion animation, green screen filming and editing, gaming videos, streaming content, and DIY's, all geared toward teaching them how to plan, create, edit and distribute their own YouTube videos.
With the content that we develop, we are developing our first ever weekly TV show for kids and it will feature all kinds of content created by MSA kids!
We've been hosting our K.A.M.P. (kids and multimedia production) summer program in Downtown Decatur for 4 years, teaching kids and collecting content for this endeavor.
We are a 501(C)(3) nonprofit, and our goal is to create entertaining and nurturing content that inspires and teaches children to create all kinds of content.
Now we have to create some awesome shows!
This summer, we will be creating fresh, new content!
Kids will create gaming shows, DIY's, and all kinds of cools YouTuber style videos and editor kids will be busy on the first day!
Again, our production activities will include:
- DIY videos (slime making, cooking shows, unboxing videos)
- Gaming Videos
- Stop-motion Animation
- Music and Video Production techniques
- Green-screen filming
- Fundamentals of lighting
- Filming with gimbals
- iOS device filming and Apps
- Editing in Final Cut ProX and iMovie
- Using Special Effects in videos

We do provide discounts for our families who register siblings. Break K.A.M.P. program offers discounts for siblings only.
We love fun, laughs and learning how to make cool videos, with old and new friends, during breaks. That’s what MSA day camps are all about. We also walk over to Mead Road Park next to Oakhurst Elementary for some well-needed outdoor time. To close out our week, (like a typical production company ;) we have our wrap party at Revolution Doughnuts to celebrate all the videos we created!
PREVIOUS YEAR CAMPS:
Food Prep and Filming:
One of our most popular KAMPs! Consistently positive experiences about kids making pizza and different kinds of food and deserts all week! Making their own individual pizzas, no-bake cheesecake and other cool eats is fun, but it gets better when the cameras come out! Students produce food making vlogs and document their experiences while creating YouTube magic!
Filmmaking Fan KAMP:
Creating a short film is an amazing experience for kids! During our Filmmaking Fan KAMP, kids learn a variety of techniques to create their own films! Finding their own niche, some kids film, others, edit or work on sound recording. Some kids choose to act, while others choose to write. But all kids, young and old, end up playing a part! We may produce 1-3 short films during these weeks.
LEGO and Stop Motion Animation:
LEGO kids are welcome here! Join us at the epicenter of Stop-Motion LEGO Movie Making in Decatur. In our workshops, kids write their storylines and scripts, develop characters and use some arts and crafts time to create sets and backdrops. Our KAMP kids create and edit their own stop motion movies, add voice overs, special effects, sound effects and music to make amazing creations. We typically make between 4 and 7 videos during this week, with students getting engaged in many aspects of the filmmaking process.
Calling all YouTube Kids! This is our K.A.M.P. specifically focused on developing young YouTubers. Kids learn some tips and tricks to develop their own channels on YouTube. KAMP kids utilize green-screen technology and editing processes to create many different types of YouTube content. Kids host their own gaming shows, produce DIYs, how to make slime videos, music videos and their own mini shows.
