Why Watch A Summer Blockbuster When You Can Make One?

A Summer. A City. A Camp Like No Other.

Join other teens for an amazing sleepaway camp experience that celebrates creativity, social responsibility and Jewish values.

New York City is the ultimate character actor. It makes a statement and gives meaning in films as polar as I Am Legend to Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. It's also the creative catalyst for thousands of screenwriters, directors, cinematographers and actors.

We'll also explore film's role in our culture—from films that channel personal expression to films that bring about real world change.
