Welcome to Editing Camp!
Other Camps: In-Person Photo Camp  and Virtual Camp

Summer 2022 Dates: TBD


Editing Camp is back by popular demand. Kids love to edit! It’s fun, super creative, and it vastly improves the way you shoot because it changes the way you see. It’s guaranteed to take your images to the next level.

This five day virtual camp covers everything you need to get started with editing your images. Through a variety of activities & exercises you’ll learn to turn a good image into a dynamic photograph.

Check out these awesome examples by some of our returning campers!

What is Photo Editing Camp?

Learn the essentials of the two most important photography applications: Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom. You’ll gain practical experience, working with your own images as we explore the vast power of these two workhorse programs.

Lightroom allows us to work with RAW images and offers extensive organizational abilities for efficient optimization and workflow. We’ll learn how to properly import, organize and edit your work. Photoshop topics include various adjustments, like brightness/contrast, color balance, levels and curves; image manipulation tools such as clone stamp and healing brush; and fine tuning with layers and masks.

Then we’ll integrate the two engines to get the most out of what they each have to offer.

IMPORTANT: We’ll be working with Lightroom Classic (not Lightroom CC) – the best thing to do is download the Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop bundle.

This Photography plan from Adobe costs $9.99/month and you can stop anytime.

Photo Editing Camp meets two times each day, at 10am & 2pm PST.


Photo Camp counselors are working photographers who have been in the industry for years. With experience in education and childhood development, they understand how to ignite passion and curiosity in a non-competitive environment.

What kind of camera should I buy my child?
If you’re thinking of getting your camper a camera of their own, here are some of the cameras we recommend:


Editing Camp challenges the way we see; we learn through instruction and practice how to make images, rather than take them. The editing is part of the image making process. Ultimately campers develop their photographic eye and learn new ways of seeing.

Photo Camp counselors are working photographers who have been in the industry for years, and with experience in education and childhood development, they understand how to ignite passion and curiosity within a non-competitive environment.

Photography is a practice of observation and awareness; it’s an exploration and discovery of perspective. It’s also a language to express ourselves. This past year has forced us to reframe just about everything, and we always encourage new points of view.

All are welcome, please join us!
