Creative Summer Say Camps for Kids

Budaörs Animation Base and Creative Space, aka BABtér for the fourth time organizes its popular summer day camps and the application has already started. This year, in addition to the animation, graphic design and graphic art day camps are also offered for kids between the ages of 7 to 15. Kids can use the 300 square meters of BABtér, most importantly our studios which are equipped with animation and graphic tools and machines, and in our courtyard, we will do creative, and entertaining games and activities with them, too. Also in our screening hall, we will show the kids the best children’s films of the Primanima World Festival of First Animations, which are rarely can be seen on television.

These summer camps developed out of the Primanima Animation Fun Zone programme and from our creative weekly courses at BABtér. The goal of the organisers and experienced art educators is, that kids could immerse themselves in an intense creative work for a week and to help them to discover the joy of creating art. To join the day camps is not necessary to have previous knowledge of animation or fine arts, as more experienced peers and art teachers are joining to help the kids who have yet to discover the world of animation and graphic arts.

COVID-19 information: if we are unable to hold the summer camps due to state regulations, we will fully refund the advance payment for the camp. Nevertheless, we recommend an early application because places can fill up quickly.

ANIMATION SUMMER CAMPS

During the one-week camp, children will learn a variety of animation techniques, including puppet, plasticine, lego, paper-cut, and digital animation. In our cozy studio, they can make animated scenes and also make their first animated short film. The extremely diverse world of animation provides a base for the development of children’s creative abilities. We use modern Canon cameras and Apple computers for filming, and we help them learn how to use digital tools creatively, while at the same time tracing them back to the love of traditional materials. On the afternoon of the last day, we will screen the films made during the summer camp for the children and their parents, which is always a cheerful way to end the week. Pics from the last summer’s camp can be found here.
