Camp Reel Stories believes that when women and girls are better represented behind the scenes in the media, they will be better reflected on the screen. Camp Reel Stories is a non-profit organization that empowers 13-18 year old young women with the skills to create their own media, to view current media critically and thoughtfully, and to aspire to leadership in their field. At the Camp Reel Stories summer programs girls get to work in small, collaborative groups, to write, shoot, edit and broadcast their own short films. Camp Reel Stories is the only media program led by professionals in the Media Industry.  Join us this summer to show the world your stories.  Your audience is waiting.

Throughout the year Camp Reel Stories offers women of all ages an opportunity to learn how to make films and tell their stories. We do this through a combination of workshops and camps for girls and women who want to learn how to make movies in the new digital media era.
