Here’s what we offered last year!
3D Video Game Design
What could be more fun than playing video games? ….Making them of course. At this camp we will create 2 non-violent games that are fun to play with friends. We start with a racing car game with some fun twists. Students will focus on modelling and texturing before using their models in a game. Using Unity as our game development toolkit students will learn a range of other asset creation tools. Even though we will be crafting some stunning games, the aim of the camp is fun.

If you can dream it you can make it. Your creativity is the only limitation within animation and that is what makes it such a wonderful art-form to use. We will start with basic fundamentals of drawing animation with pencil and then move on to create 2D digital animations, stop motion claymation and 3D computer generated animations. Unlock the secrets to the ultimate freedom of film making.
(4:00 – 6:00 pm) w/ Peter
Campers will explore photo manipulation, illustration, graphic design, 3D modelling, 3D printing and focus on self expression within the digital medium.The creative industry is a fun and fulfilling way to make a living and here we will learn the skills how to. The focus here is to balance your creativity with know how to create stunning results.

Role Playing Game Class
(4:00-6:00pm) w/ Lauren
Interested in roleplaying games, but not a fan of the fantasy genre? Ever wanted to be a gunslinger in the wild west, or a scavenger in a post-apocalyptic wasteland? What about a cyborg with something to prove in Neo Tokyo? Practice improvisation, problem solving and teamwork while creating a story with friends in this class through various settings. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary!
The minute I walked in my first class that morning, Michaela [my teacher], was like sunshine – she just hit! I came into Summer Math thinking, ” I’ll pass this by 52%”. I got my first test done, and I was like WHOA! “Anything above 73%, and I’m good”, and I ended up getting a class average of 84%, which I could’ve never imagined! …. It was a lot of work, but it was fun too, because Michaela and Yeasir are great teachers.
I chose to do math at BrainBoost because I wanted to get it done and over with. The class was great, as everyone helped each other, and it was a supportive environment. We all became friends, and I was most surprised by the commitment from everyone in the class. At BrainBoost, they have awesome teachers who can teach you one-on-one a lot because the classes are small. My favourite part was meeting people like me determined to do math.
