Media Adventure Camp


Media Adventure Camp with Hamilton Media Design

Young people see the world so fresh and have a STORY to capture. So here’s a chance at LEAF to learn from pros. The Hamilton Media Design (HMD) team is gearing up to lead a camp-style workshop for young people, ages 11 and up. “We’ll have lots of fun while learning about the building blocks of multimedia production: Audio, video, and storytelling,” say organizers who are some of the BEST media creatives in WNC.

The inaugural media camp takes place at LEAF’s Spring Retreat, on Saturday, May 15. The workshop, which will be held in Big Barn and socially distanced, runs from 10am-Noon. Cost $75 (note: LEAF Schools & Streets Scholarships available)

The theme for the first Media Adventure Camp is “Multimedia Foundations.” Future camps will explore field recording, interviews, script writing, editing & more. Join HMD on the tech playground. Questions?? Email and we will connect you with HMD Team.
