3 day camp
7-12 year olds
Create your own stop-motion movies with clay and LEGO, just like The LEGO Movies!

Welcome to your movie-making adventure at Animation Camp!

Animation Camp is the exciting intersection between storytelling, art and technology! Over three days, your child will create two movies from scratch using stop-motion animation. Stop-motion is the process of taking multiple images of objects and stitching them together to look like they’re moving - it’s an incredibly fun and creative way to tell a story!

Action-Packed Days

Check-In

Our friendly and experienced staff will be waiting to greet you at camp. Look out for our Camp Manager in an orange Code Camp t-shirt, they’re also a qualified teacher and first aid trained. Once you’ve signed in your child, it’s time to say goodbye to let your kids make new friends and then embark on their creative adventure!

You can drop off between 9:00 and 9:30 am, and pick-up between 3:30 and 3:45pm. Extended hours are available at certain locations.

Day One

Produce a Claymation movie!

We will spend some time brainstorming a storyboard concept for your child's first movie then move onto set design and creating our characters.

Then we teach stop motion basic techniques, taking lots of still photos before stitching them together to make a Claymation film, just like Wallace and Gromit & Chicken Run.

To finish our Claymation films we add voice overs, intros & outros, credits and special effects!

Day Two

Make your own LEGO movie!

On day two, kids will learn how to make their own LEGO movie as they’re introduced to Brickfilm animation.

We create a new storyboard, design a fresh set and learn green screen techniques, then move on to taking photos of our LEGO adventures.

To produce our Brickfilms, we edit the animations and add titles, credits, music, voice overs and more!

Day Three

Get ready to unleash your inner Spielberg!

For our final day of camp we will jump into a new type of advanced animation – Drawing Animation.

We dive into flipping, anticipation, exaggeration and facial animation. Kids will explore other animation styles, using a second app to make a cool Rotoscope video (combining live footage with drawing animation).

Then we finish camp with a movie showcase and medal ceremony to celebrate our creative achievements and share the movies with parents for a showcase at home!

FAQs

What is the structure of a day at camp?

Each day is divided into 1.5 - 2 hour sessions of fun, creative learning with three breaks for crunch & sip, recess and lunch so the kids can have outside play (weather allowing).

What time is drop off and pick-up time?

Drop-off is from 9:00-9:30 am and pick-up is 3:30-3:45pm. At selected venues we offer extend hours from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm - this availability will be visible at the booking page.

Does my child need to bring a device?

Animation Camp requires students to bring their own tablet to camp. Please note, Code Camp doesn't offer tablet hire.

What should I pack in my child's bag each day?

We recommend bringing a hat, water bottle, sunscreen and a nut-free packed crunch and sip, recess, and lunch.

How many kids are in each class?

We have some of the best student-teacher ratios to ensure every child has a positive experience. Most of our classes are capped at 28 students with a 1:8 teacher-student ratio.

Do they have to have prior experience?

Most holiday camps are suitable for absolute beginners. Ignite requires a basic understanding of drag & drop coding, while kids attending Blast 3D and Web Builders need to be proficient at line coding.

Can I stay with my child?

Our camps are well staffed and we do not have parents stay for the day. If there is a particular reason that you’d like to attend, please get in contact with us to discuss.

Do you cater for special needs?

Whilst we do not run programs specifically designed to cater for students with special needs, our aim is to be as inclusive as possible. If your child attends a mainstream school and is comfortable in a classroom environment, they are welcome to attend. We will ask about their needs at enrolment. We are unable to provide 1:1 support, however if your child has a support worker they may attend with them. Please contact us to discuss your child’s individual needs.

My child is younger than the specified age, can they attend? Can my younger child attend with an older sibling?

If a child is within 3 months of the recommended age, for most of our programs it is up to the parent to determine if the child is capable. Our camps are structured for the specified age range and with 1:8 ratios, so one on one support for a younger child will not be available. Unless the child is displaying maturity levels and academic capabilities of an older child, we don’t recommend it however feel free to contact us at hello@codecamp.com.au to discuss what's suitable for your child.

Do you offer a sibling discount?

When you enrol your child, you will receive a referral code which can be used to save $20 off your sibling booking.
