TGC brings together kids and elders as campers — guiding them into learning expeditions in nature and the local community. Without demanding any particular result, the camp has found that immersing diverse groups in collaborative activities leads to positive intergenerational exchanges. TMS stokes interactions between young and old by facilitating intergenerational camper directed documentary videos on their travels.

It is always a goal of TMS/TGC productions to expose this decision-making process within our videos to not only demonstrate the building of media literacy that goes on at camp, but to expose our audience to those lessons as well. We hope to engage viewers in critical thinking about the constructedness of all media as they watch campers make editorial choices, and also transparently share the camp video production process to those who would like to try it for themselves.
