12 Things to Do at Camp with a GoPro Camera

Last Updated on

GoPro cameras are amazing. They can be attached to all sorts of things thanks to the multitude of mounting options that are available. They are very durable. They have great image quality and image stabilization. They can be used in all sorts of conditions by using waterproof cases.

There’s also the signature fisheye look of GoPro videos that is a result of a larger field of view by the camera. You can always remove the fisheye look by using the GoPro editing software, but depending on what you’re using it for, the fisheye look is pretty cool in my opinion.

So here are 10 things you can do at summer camp with a GoPro camera.

1. ROPES COURSE

With the helmet attachment, you can have a camper or staff person wear it while going through the high ropes course at camp. Imagine how neat the video would look while someone did the Leap of Faith or the zipline.

2. CLIMBING WALL

You can either mount the camera on a helmet or mount it to the top of the wall looking down to the climbers. Better yet, do both and edit the videos into one epic climbing video.

3. COLOR WAR VIDEO

Having different people wear a head strap while competing in the different events and then editing them all together would make for a fantastic video.

6. AERIAL VIEW OF CAMP

Do you have a little extra money in the budget? Once you have your GoPro camera, it’s time to get a drone that will hold it. Once attached, fly the drone over the entire camp to get amazing aerial shots. No longer do you have to pay thousands of dollars for a helicopter and videographer to do one set of shots. Now you can do it yourself as many times as you want.

If you want to take your drone footage up a notch, get one with a built-in 4k camera. Both options can be seen below.

7. TIME LAPSE VIDEO

Thanks to the durability and resilience to the elements of the GoPro cameras, you can set-it up to do a time-lapse video of a certain part of camp. Catch all that is happening at the lake including the sunrise and sunset. Set it up to capture the day’s activities at the flagpole, or in the dining hall.

8. HORSES

All of your staff and campers are wearing helmets for this activity anyway, so why not attach a GoPro to one. A video that includes campers brushing the horse, trail rides, jumping and anything else you do in your horse program, would make for good viewing.

9. ALL CAMP MUSIC VIDEO

Get everyone together to make a fun video to a meaningful or favorite song.
