July 23 – July 27 (Monday - Friday)
9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
YouTube is one of the most popular mobile apps and websites for both
children and adults. Almost 5 BILLION videos are watched on Youtube
every single day, by over 30 million visitors. Not only is YouTube an
incredibly popular destination for youngsters, it can also be extremely
lucrative. Last year, for example, the youngest YouTube star made over
11 million dollars at the tender age of just 6 years old!
Despite being the world's most popular digital destination for children
of all ages, most people don’t realize that the minimum age to be a
"YouTuber" (someone who creates YouTube videos) is 13. So what is a
young video creator to do? In a safe, socially conscious way, this camp
will teach your child how to create and share their videos on YouTube.
Campers will also learn how their parent or legal guardian can authorize
them to be a YouTuber if they are younger than YouTube's minimum age limit.
Campers will develop their imagination and increase their confidence as
they develop, film and edit their own videos using BC High’s theatre,
green-screen technology and state-of-the-art video editing tools from
Apple and YouTube. Media literacy and online safety will be enforced
during the week as they learn the technical skills to create a video the
entire family will be proud to share.
