  • iYCC – This “High-Tech” specialty summer is for all of our campers. iYCC is integrated into the daily activities for our campers, and is run by the very creative, intuitive, and charismatic Josh Fagen. Josh, who is currently studying Media Arts at John Abbott College, says that “iYCC is a specialty where campers can create and edit their own short films, commercials and music videos using our iPads, DSL camera and Go-Pro cameras.” The goal of the program is to have the campers create experience-based videos that use various cinematic techniques that they will acquire at camp, with the focus being on outdoor footage. Who knows… the next YouTube sensation may be a YCC camper!
