Red Deer College will soon welcome youth and teens from across Alberta as they participate in more than 40 interactive summer camps.

The camps will be offered through to Aug. 23, and there are opportunities covering a range of interests for participants six to 19 years of age.

For the artistically inclined, SummerScapes is a comprehensive visual arts workshop that gives teens a chance to work with professional artists and study drawing, painting, sculpting and ceramics.

From July 8 to 13, film students, video game designers and animation students will tell their stories as they work side by side with some of Alberta’s finest actors, filmmakers, programmers and instructors.

In Film Camp, murder mystery films will be explored, as students learn how to produce, direct, shoot, write, act and edit their own short movies.

Video Game Design allows teens to collaborate with programmers and artists to create their own video games through writing and design.

Students will learn story and character development, production, strategy and level designs, along with scripting, animation and more.

The amination camp encourages teens to tell stories using Maya, the industry standard for high-end 3D computer animation, effects and modelling.

Students progress through motion and rendering exercises and finish with a collection of animations of their own design.

RDC also has a variety of youth camps, including URockGirl, which uses science and engineering to create fun hands-on projects like henna and mood bracelets.

Other activity-based science camps include Junior Imagineers, which gives youth the opportunity to combine science and the power of the mind to learn magic tricks and techniques from a real magician.

Youth inspired to get cooking will appreciate Junior Chefs, where they get to use real industrial kitchens.

Campers will learn cooking and baking techniques from Red Seal chefs, developing skills that will last a lifetime.

Those interested in many of the sports camps, including basketball, conditioning, squash, sport academy and volleyball, will enjoy the world-class facilities in RDC’s vibrant and inclusive Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre.

Spots are still available in a variety of camps throughout the summer.
