Camp Reel Stories believes that when women and girls are better represented behind the scenes in the media, they will be better reflected on the screen. We are a non-profit organization that empowers 13-18 year old young women with the skills to create their own media, to view current media critcally and thoughtfully, and to aspire to leadership in their field.
"It's a place where I've realized what my voice can look like. It's a great motivator to have these women come in from the business who have found their voices so totally and seem to know right where they want to be and that's where I want to be." - CRS Camper
"I just want to say again how wonderful your curriculum was for this camp. A lot of acting/media/theatre schools and camps forget the larger question of semiotics and a critical stance, and fail to connect the 'yay! I get to be a move star for a day' to the larger questions of what media means, why feminism matters in relationship to it, and how girls' creativity fits into this larger framework. Ella has been daily telling everyone about the Bechdel Test -- it's as exciting to her as getting to see herself on YouTube. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" - CRS Parent
