TCC-backed Creators Camp inspires local students

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 17, 2014) – Tallahassee Community College has helped to present an innovative camp for area students at the Florida A&M University Regional Institute for Math and Science.
 
Students at the Creators Camp, which wrapped up Tuesday, July 8, built Web sites around their original ideas. TCC Workforce Development sponsored the camp, along with Cumulus Media and Tallahassee State Bank.
 
Creators Camp, powered by MASSIVE Corporation, helps K-12 students unlock, build and demonstrate creative confidence. Campers explore different creative fields under the guidance of industry professionals.
 
Through its skilled counselors and hands-on group projects, Creators Camp seeks to protect and build the creative spirits of children, according to MASSIVE Corporation CEO Vincent Hunt.
 
“It’s about building confidence in a place, within a child, where magic happens,” Hunt said. “Creators Camp is not just a ‘camp,’ or a ‘brand’ for that matter. Creators Camp is a movement.”
 
The students at Creators Camp also gain a deeper understanding of how each of the camp’s three areas of practice—writing, visual design and programming—fit into the modern marketplace.
 
“This is a great opportunity for students to learn life skills while creating a tangible product,” said Kimberly Moore, TCC vice president for workforce development. “They are able to develop skills needed in the workforce. Creators Camp brings a new approach to teaching and training.”
 
Future Creators Camp sessions will venture beyond the three currently featured disciplines. Hunt said robotics, animation and other creative fields may become part of the curriculum as Creators Camp expands all over the country.
