Langley summer camp creating film and video artists

Kids in Grades 4 to 7 can learn how to make music videos and short films at the annual film and video camp at Brookswood Secondary.

Spots are limited for the camp that runs Aug. 31 to Sept. 4.

“This is the 15th year for the camp,” said student volunteer Morgaine Lee.

The camp is run by student volunteers (under the direction of film teacher Robert French) who have been studying film and television production during the school year.

There’s 10 to 15 student volunteers and up to 30 kids can sign up for the camp.

“No prior experience is needed,” she added. “All the gear is provided.”

The kids learn how to use video cameras, set up and take cool shots, edit their footage on editing software, and get to act in each other’s films.

“They will stay on the school grounds during the camp day,” Lee explained.

At the end of the week, parents are invited to come and view the students’ creations and students takes home their films.

The cost is $250 for the camp that runs 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the week on the grounds of BSS, 20902 37A Ave. To find out more, people can visit or send an email to
