The Academia banner is overseeing four programs initiated by Ubisoft Montréal and its partners, including the Videogame Base Camp.

With the help of experts from Ubisoft Montréal and Toon Boom Animation, students will be introduced to the principles governing the production of a video game by producing a board game. Participants will work in teams using Toon Boom Animation's 2D graphic technology. The Videogame Base Camp will develop participants' leadership, creativity and logical thinking, key skills in the field of video games.

The winning team will see its game embellished and printed like a commercially available board game, and each member will receive a copy.
