The residential campers will stay in one of our on-campus dormitories and eat meals at the Jack Hopper Dinning Hall.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Visual Arts: Creative minded high schoolers looking for an in-depth art experience will be right at home at JSU’s Visual Arts Camp. This program will give students insight into what it is like to be a college level designer and artist in the JSU Art Department. Workshops will be taught by our experienced Faculty and graduate students. The camp includes housing, meals, and supplies. The week long camp will end with an Exhibition of the students’ work in one of our 4 campus gallery spaces open to family and friends.

Film making: "I Am My Own Super-Hero" Filmmaking Camp is an excellent introduction to the art of film making utilizing professional processes for writing, shooting and lighting digital film projects. The camp features a hands on, no-nonsense approach to the art of film; developing a script relating to their own super-hero qualities, placing students behind the camera, setting up creative lighting and learning techniques of boom operation from day one.

Creative Writing: Come write with us! The JSU Writers Camp (Young Adult Writing Program) is dedicated to fostering craft for writers interested in developing their skills in the genres of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, and will offer workshops, craft lectures, and readings by published writers and teachers of creative writing.

Acting: In this acting camp, actors will curate their own original interpretive work of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. From Humpty Dumpty to the Red Queen, from the Mad Hatter to the Jabberwocky, creative devising, ensemble work, and physical and vocal character exploration will all combine to bring the curious characters of Wonderland to life. Young actors will learn a variety of professional acting techniques, vocal and movement work, textual analysis, group games and exercises, audition techniques, and improv.

Cosplay/Costuming: Take your Cosplay skills to the next level in this intense one week camp! The week will be filled with a variety of hands on projects to increase your sewing, design, and patternmaking skills for Cosplay so you can better envision and complete your creations. Other projects will involve working with new and nontraditional materials such as thermoplastics and patterning and completing foam pieces. You will also sculpt, cast and mold items using the latest silicone products.

Show Choir: Over the span of a week, contemporary style singing with choreography will be taught to participants. Solo singing, choral singing, and dance will be emphasized as students work towards a themed show for performance by week’s end. Music reading is not required as students will be taught basic music reading skills through keyboard instruction. The Show Choir Camp will be led by experienced music faculty and graduate assistants.
