Taught by the incomparable ZBS faculty, we will combine the meaningful, professional and holistic training ZBS is known for, with some true summer fun! This is not only an enormous opportunity to evolve your art, but to have a ridiculously good time doing it.

The camp day is broken up into a variety of exciting activities, both on and off-screen, and includes structured break times.
Schedule: 9am – 4pm , M – F, Weeklong Camps, all summer long
Locations: Encino, Santa Monica, Westwood, and Irvine
Discovery Launch – We will always start the day with an intro period in which we introduce the objectives for the day and demo what the final outcome might look like. Campers will then be led by the instructor using our dialogue format in which our instructors have students actively participate in discovering how to reach the objective by asking questions throughout rather than simply lecturing.
Let’s Move It… Outside – This will be the 1st of three break periods during the camp day in which we will lead the students in STEM themed fun activities outside. For one of many examples, think of Simon says, but with a robot giving orders and using coding concepts such as loops and conditionals.
Innovation Hour – Campers will continue working on their projects and the instructor will introduce challenges that will require students to get their innovative caps on to be able to complete.
Let’s Get Physical… Outside – This will be the 2nd of three break periods during the camp day in which we will lead the campers in STEM themed fun activities outside.
Ideation & Iteration – Campers will wrap up the day’s objectives and will now get to customize their projects as well as come up with ideas on how to make their project unique.
Golden Hour Giggles (Outside) – In the 3rd break of the day, students will have fun outside. In this period, we tend to focus more on team-building activities rather than very physical activities although there is a mix of that as well.
Buddy Up & Brainstorm – Campers will buddy up to see and experience each other’s projects. If students made digital art, the partner will get to run the code and ask questions about how this was created. If students made a game, their partner can play and test the game. Together, they can brainstorm more ways to customize and add to this project.
Project Landing – In the last period of the day, campers will wrap up the day with a recap of the day’s objectives and key concepts and ideas for the next day of camp.
Camp del Corazon Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-profit corporation, providing a free of charge, medically supervised, residential summer camp for children ages 7-17 who are living with heart disease as well as additional programs for these children and their families. All proceeds are spent on the camp, and its programming, and we are staffed entirely by volunteers.

We also provide an environment that offers support and self-esteem building and socialization that these children do not otherwise have access to. Impact of camp studies prove that camp helps to strengthen the confidence and self-esteem of children and your support will give these very special children life-altering experiences that cannot be put into words. As a testament to the impact the camp has on these young souls, most return year after year to relive experiences they can get nowhere else.

Check out a parent’s review:
“Our eight-year-old daughter got to perform stand-up for an audience. It was one of those moments I will never forget as a parent. I got to see a side of her that I’d never seen. She was poised, confident, and really looked like she was in her element. We always thought she’d like to be on stage, but she’s never been this excited about any theater, dance, or singing performance she’s done in the past. She’s always liked telling and writing jokes, but we didn’t think much of it. I’m not sure what they exactly did at the camp, but they really helped her to find herself on the stage. I’ve never seen her shine as she did during the show after just 5 days of camp. Also, the show at the end of the week was incredibly well produced. You’d think a kids’ comedy show would probably be a little boring and awkward, but it was actually incredibly entertaining and fun. Thank you!”
