What you will Learn and Create:

The camp offers training and workshops in both technical and creative aspects of action sports film and photography, as well as creative and professional editing techniques.You will learn about all the latest digital equipment, editing and postproduction software, uploading to web platforms, etc.

Ideally you should aim to create a finished edit/slideshow by the end of the session that can be profiled through Momentum channels, to a large audience of campers, as well as through camp sponsors and FB sites – giving you great exposure as up and coming shooters! On the final night we rent a conference room and showcase all of the edits and slideshows to campers, coaches and staff!






• Geared for teens and young adults, the program will consist of practical shooting sessions on the glacier, in mountain bike terrain, or at other select locations.

• Editing sessions at the camp hotel
• Seminars & workshops by your coaches along with a spectacular night shoot up on the glacier.


As with our ski camps, you can opt for a Full Package all-inclusive camp which covers transfers, food and accommodation or choose the Instruction-Only Package if you want to make your own arrangements.
