For a few weeks during the summer season, kids at Camp Mark Seven in Old Forge, New York have the opportunity to take part in Deaf Film Camp. During that time, the campers learn about scriptwriting; storyboarding; working with claymation, make up, and set design; how to tell a story using ASL (American Sign Language); and how to film and edit stories and music videos.
So come on, get happy, and watch the video that these talented kids created!
Here’s the mission statement of the Camp, from its website: Camp Mark Seven (CM7), a lakefront camp situated in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, offers an array of recreational, educational, leadership and spiritual programs for deaf, hard-of-hearing and hearing individuals of all ages. CM7 was founded as a Catholic-oriented Camp, and welcomes people of all faiths.
