Light Factory offers new camps this summer

Camps for special-needs students, others in fashion photography, animation, toy cameras

The Light Factory announces the 2011 roster of summer camps that focus on fun with photography, filmmaking and digital media for students and youth.  The Light Factory is one of only four museums in the country that celebrates both mediums of photography and film, which means that campers have the unique opportunity to express themselves using the most powerful mediums of our time.  To learn more about The Light Factory or to register for camps, log onto http://www.lightfactory.org/student-a-youth.

The Light Factory offers week-long, half-day camps in all aspects of photography and filmmaking for rising third- through 12th-graders. All camps cost $230 and take place at The Light Factory, at 345 N. College St., inside Spirit Square.
