Frontier Kids Productions Camp
The Loveland Museum is full of stories…help us share these stories with the community by choosing the ones that interest you the most and creating mini-movies about them! Frontier Kids Productions: Got History? is a fun way for pre-teens and teens to write, create, act, and film history videos to be used in the Museum’s history galleries. Students will research history, write their own scripts, help film, create sets, and develop costumes. The final edited videos will be posted online or in the Museum’s interactive exhibits.
