Calgary Game Developers Academy for Youths - Video Game Design for Children & Teens

Our mission is to provide a fun game development environment for children and teens to explore their minds, build friendships and learn technical skills!

An essential element to maintaining a high quality of life is being both physically and mentally active while engaging in recreational pursuits. For children and teens, these pursuits often include activities that promote a sense of well-being through relaxation or enjoyment, as such playing video and computer games. CGDAY™ offers a social setting for young people to channel their passion for video game play into a desire to create something of their own.

CGDAY™’s goal is to offer a learning experience that teaches practical and diverse skills that prepare students for a wide range of career opportunities. We aim to stimulate the imaginative minds of young people while developing their confidence and sense of empowerment.
