This full day camp combines creative learning with team based play as campers create their own games from scratch or modify and extend existing popular video games in a networked environment.
The morning is spent using imagination and critical thinking skills as campers conceive, plan, discuss and create a video game or multimedia project of their own design. They also mold popular concepts with their own modifications then share and play them with others.
Our tools are age appropriate and require no previous experience. No traditional, tedious “programming” is done. Our instructors are gamers & professionals who have experience working with children and teens to teach programming concepts & software skills.
Campers spend the afternoon participating in a variety of fun, organized activities such as cat and mouse, capture the flag and headquarters. Often they use this time to enhance or complete their morning’s work.
