Please Note: We are conducting a thorough review of our summer camp program in 2023 in order to ensure that it meets the highest standards for quality, education, and of course, enjoyment. Sadly, this means our summer camps will not be occurring this summer. We aspire to bring the program back next year.
Burnaby Summer Camps
The BCIT Broadcast and Media Summer Camps in Burnaby are tailored for kids and teens aged 8-17. With the guidance of industry professionals, kids and teens can apply their creativity and step behind the scenes of the world of broadcast and media production. All kids and teens summer camps are in-person at the BCIT Burnaby campus and will include both indoor and outdoor activities. Take the time this summer to learn something remarkable!
Audio Arts & Entertainment
Your voice can tell a great story and our pros can show you how to use it to its fullest potential. Learn how announcers are trained to voice a range of media from podcasts, commercials and cartoons to reporting for news, sports and entertainment. Record yourself in audio booths, run a soundboard, experiment with mixing, and create fun sound effects.
You see the world through a lens with endless viewpoints and artistic possibilities. Using a DSLR camera provided by BCIT, learn about the technical and visual language of photography in studio and outdoor settings. Experiment with exposure, the rules of composition, lighting, and editing to create great images. Make this a summer of creative exploration and self-expression!
Roll camera, Roll sound, Mark, Set, Action! Your filmmaking experience begins here. With access to BCIT’s green screen studio and other locations around campus, design cinematic visual compositions to get the right shots, lighting, and sound while making a music video and/or TV commercial.
