Featured CEPA Summer Camp Student: Rachel Norvilitis

11-year-old Rachel has been taking photographs since she was five and has twice attended summer camp at CEPA. She enjoys taking pictures of flowers, buildings, and her cat Max. Her work has been exhibited at the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens, and won awards from the Erie County Fair, the Buffalo Zoo, and Doors Open Niagara.

“When I was at camp at CEPA I had a lot of fun. I loved to walk around the city because it is cool to photograph different buildings. Also, I was glad to use the darkroom. That personally is my favorite because it is fun to see the pictures develop. CEPA gallery is a cool place to hang out. I like to look at the exhibits and talk to the staff. I was glad that the teachers would let us take photos more than just talking about them. I am eager to go next year!”
