Registered parents will receive communication on how to create a YouTube account prior to the start of camp. If your child already has a YouTube account they can use this one for the camp. Students should also have a USB Drive to save their files and designs. If you don't have a USB Drive they can bring you may purchase one below. More communication about this will also be sent to registered parents.
