Animation Minis

2 day camp
5-7 year olds
Kids unleash their imaginations and create a movie using stop-motion animation!

Explore your creativity these holidays!

Animation Minis is the exciting intersection of storytelling, craft and technology!

Over two days, kids ages 5-7 will draw a storyboard, build their film set, shape their favourite characters out of clay, and work together to bring their story to life frame-by-frame using stop-motion animation. Stop-motion is the process of taking multiple photos and stitching them together to look like they’re moving.

With a balance of hand-on creative activities and super cool tech, this is a camp all kids will love.

Action-Packed Days


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 coding adventure!

You can drop off between 9:00 and 9:30 am, and pick-up between 3:30 and 4:00pm. Extended hours are available at certain locations.

Day One

Learn Stop-Motion Animation

Kids will create a visual storyboard for their movie, before moving onto set design and making their clay characters.

Then the movie making begins! 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! Plus they'll stay engaged with a range of fun offline activities.

Day Two

Premiere your blockbuster!

Today we’re getting ready to reveal our adventure movies to the world (or at least to our classmates and parents)!

Kids will use editing software to produce their finished videos, adding voice overs, music, video effects, credits and more.

We end with an awards ceremony, recognising each child’s creative achievements and a movie showcase!

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 3:30-4:00 pm. 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 Minis 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?

Many of our 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 your 4-year-old is currently doing their foundation year of school and is within 1 month of turning 5 at the time of camp, then they are welcome to join us. If your child hasn't started school yet then unfortunately they are too young for these programs however we would love to see them when they are a little older.

Founder Year = Kindergarten (NSW and ACT), Preparatory or Prep (Queensland, Victoria and Tasmania), Reception (South Australia), Pre-Primary (Western Australia), and Transition (Northern Territory).

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.
