Tomorrow's Master of Digital Media Program

Looking for an intensive tech camp? Tomorrow's Master of Digital Media Program is a 2-week summer boot camp designed for students entering grades 9-12. Students learn rapid prototyping and collaborative techniques, and will have a playable digital media product at the end of this fun, 2-week course.

At a BC summer camp your child will be able to enjoy the great outdoors of British Columbia, with its majestic mountainous scenery and diverse stunning landscape. From Vancouver to Victoria and Kelowna, and all the beautiful cities and small towns throughout BC, there are a number of day and overnight camps that provide a wholesome and engaging camp experience. Could there be a better way to spend the summer in the heart of Vancouver or out in the endless back country? 

I had an amazing time meeting new people and working with them.  Everyday I’d wake up and I’d feel excited to actually go to this camp. I’d always walk home with a smile on my face because of all the things we’d done and learned.”

Why attend a BC camp?

Whether your child is a local Vancouverite or BC bred, or whether they’re visiting from out of province or out of the country, a camp in BC, Canada will allow your son or daughter the same opportunity to immerse themselves in an exciting adventure with wilderness trips, indoor and outdoor education programs, technology, science, arts, music, and sports.

Your child will get to experience and learn about their surrounding area through a broad range of different activities within a camp or at specialty camps such as guitar or debate camp. These include both winter and summer activities.

What can you expect a BC camp to cost?

Depending on the type of camp and whether it’s day or overnight, the cost can range anywhere from $200-$600+ per week or by day. It’s best to contact the camps of your choice to find out what’s included in the cost, such as meals or transportation, or what’s not such as spending money for a snack shack.

Find the right BC camp for your child

If you’re looking for some guidance on how to begin your search for a camp or program in BC, create a list of what your child and your family is most interested in with a camp experience. Does the location matter? What types of programs or activities would your child enjoy the most? Would they like a single-sex or coed camp? Do they want to develop a particular interest or passion further? Decide what’s most important with your child and your family and research your options from there.
