It is with sadness and regret The Movie Institute must announce that Kamp Hollywood 2020 is yet another casualty of the Covid 19 pandemic. It was a tough decision, but nothing is more important than the safety and health of our young Indies, so due to Covid 19 infection risk, we will not be able to present Kamp Hollywood during its 20th year. Yes, disbelief and sadness abounds...
As you can imagine, this is a deep disappointment to the kids, to our mentors and staff, and parents as well. And as much as it is a disappointment, it is also a financial hit of the highest magnitude to your nonprofit The Movie Institute. As with many program based nonprofits, we are very much struggling. So, if MI has helped your kids in any way, or if you care about giving kids mentoring and hope for a successful, purpose-driven future, could you see your way to helping MI survive this crisis today? Please consider donating any tax deductible amount here: https://www.movieinstitute.org/donate.

Thanks for your continuing support of our work with youth that gets them future and work force ready!
Please help us continue to help them by making a tax deductible donation today!

PRODUCTION SERVICES PROGRAM
Kamp Hollywood gave me the opportunity to find my passion in producing. Every camper gets hands-on experience and ultimately decides what their role will be. I learned all the film lingo and experienced the process of making a movie from writing out the ideas to screening the projects for our families, but most importantly I learned how to collaborate as a member of a team. I looked forward to going to Kamp Hollywood every summer and frequently reference my experience in job interviews. I cannot recommend this program enough. If you are a parent considering signing your child up, know you are giving your child a worthwhile experience, full of valuable information and fun times!
