Summer camp is a great time for kids to get creative. Those who are interested in computer animation or computer games can head to Artech Summer Camps at the Shambala School on Russell Street in Halifax.
“It’s a chance for kids to sample different things,” Ronnie Scullion, the camp’s director, says. “The camps are one week long and some kids come for one or two sessions, while others come for the whole summer.”
Today’s children also want to create their own stories, craft their own films or movies, and design their own video games. With a little bit of technical guidance they get during the camp and the proper equipment they can!
Artech has eight weeks through July and August of exciting high-tech adventures for kids from six —14 years, as well as one week—August 8-12 specially geared for adults. The adult camp is the first one Artech has offered and is geared towards teachers and others interested in blending art and technology together.
