Kierland Camps

THE WESTIN KIERLAND’S DIGITAL KIDS CLUB

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!

The Digital Kids Club at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa invites children ages 8-13 to experience a unique, five-day “digital” camp.

STOP MOTION ANIMATION
Bring in your own objects and make them magically come to life in your very own video. Be the director and while moving objects in small increments between photographed frames, create the illusion of movement when the series of frames are played. If you love taking photos and making videos, this is the camp for you!

MOVIE MAKING
Do you ever wonder how movies are made? Have you always wanted to be in front of the camera as an actor in your very own film? Then this is the camp for you. In this session, you will get to play the role of actor, producer and director of your very own movie!

PRODUCE YOUR OWN MORNING NEWS SHOW
Goooood morning Westin Kierland! At KNN, the Kierland News Network, we provide round-the-clock news reporting. Producing your very own morning show with everything from ‘On the Spot’ reporting to weather, you can be a news anchor or journalist on location reporting vacation news around the Resort!
