Summer Camps

“Thomas Farm Films is a creative and unique experience for your child to learn positive self esteem. Encouragement and a healthy environment make for confidence building in this safe and fun workshop. I know these children are headed for greatness! Thanks Kari and Josh!”

Thomas Farm Films will be back in summer 2024 with 4 weeks of filmmaking camps for ages 5 to 18. Each week-long camp will result in a finished short film to be screened in the Thomas Farm Films Summer Films Festival.

Each group of student filmmakers will be guided by 1 Filmmaking Instructor and Production Assistants. Our staff is background checked and First-Aid/CPR Certified. Camps take place on a 35 acre organic farm in Aptos.


Some kids just want to play on the farm…and they may end up in a movie. As an EXTRA! Same hours as film camp. No guaranteed film involvement. Just guaranteed farm fun!
