Kids aged 10 to 12 can learn the basics of photography and more at Capturing Creativity

Photography camp for kids in Delta

Earthwise Garden invites to kids to click Aug. 22-26.

Looking for activities for your children this August – something creative, perhaps?

Photographer Chelsea Hailes is offering photography camps for kids aged 10 to 12 from Aug. 22-26 at the Earthwise Garden and Farm.

The camp is Capturing Creativity and takes place in a great learning environment – perfect for exploration and discovery.

Hailes, the camp instructor, holds a bachelor of design in photography from the Alberta College of Art and Design.

She enjoys photographing people and currently works as a professional photographer in Vancouver

“Photography is a great way for kids to be engaged with the world around them and look at it more carefully,” she says. “It’s more than pointing and shooting, it’s about decision making, learning what to look for and how to capture it.”

The camp will teach both technical and artistic aspects of photography.

Participants will build their skills and techniques, gathering a basic understanding of how photography works and learning to use ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings on their cameras.

Through hands-on exercises, kids will have the opportunity to explore the Earthwise Garden, take part in fun group activities, crafts, and of course take lots of photos.

Each photographer-in-training will also have their best photography displayed at an Earthwise Market Day this summer.

The week-long Earthwise Photography Camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The cost is $120 per person ($100 for Earthwise members).

Spaces are limited. To register or for more information, call 604-946-9828, email info@earth or visit
