Documentary Explorers Camp introduces students to documentary filmmaking as a tool for experiencing, exploring, understanding, and appreciating the natural scientific world. The program encourages students to use documentary filmmaking as a scientific learning tool—a creative way to record what they have learned through positive collaboration, problem solving, and technological skill building.

Living on-location in Redwood National and State Parks, young adults have created some amazing documentaries. Check out their films.
