Take 2 Creative Camp

The YWCA Elgin Take 2 Creative Camp is a summer program for students between the ages of 12 and 15 years old. Take 2 provides students with a safe environment during the summer months, a chance to make new friends, and the opportunity to learn new skills.

This program focuses on teaching teens how to use today’s technology in order to explore their own creativity and, by doing so, become confident in voicing their own opinions on multiple platforms. The teens in our program are taught how to apply the skills they learn in our program over into there everyday life.

Through the summer the Take 2 students will get to:

  • write scripts
  • edit video footage
  • direct videos
  • use a green screen
  • shoot videos
  • create vlogs and blogs
  • star in videos
  • volunteer
  • go on field trips

At the end of each summer the Take 2 Creative Camp hosts a Red Carpet event. During this event they get to show off their master pieces to their friends, family and the Elgin community.

We owe a big thank you to the Elgin Township who has funded this camp for the past two years. We also would like to give a shout out to the Gail Borden Public Library who allowed us to use their Digital Media Lab at Studio 270.
