In 1988, Dana founded and launched Camp D.A.N.A (Dreams Always Need Assistance). The mission of this week-long summer camp is to broaden and enhance the interest in arts and entertainment. Facilitated by industry professionals, the courses and workshops teach the nuts and bolts of filmmaking and theatrical production.
