Our Summer Lab starts with the Game Lab version of chess (new pieces, new modifications), and continues with strategic board games. We take time to create new game designs, new rules, and more. Kids receive merit badges for contributions and collaboration. We also spend an hour in Prospect Park for outdoor game play. The afternoon concludes with role playing games, design time, and free play.

About this provider
We don’t just teach kids how to play games; we teach them how to analyze, discuss, and experiment with their own variants in small groups. Our kids are encouraged to think out of the (game) box.Kids who engage in our specialized approach to gaming develop critical-thinking skills like risk and resource management, the art of negotiation and deduction, and long-term planning. The Lab also stresses the importance of fair play, diplomacy, collaboration, and a positive attitude however the game turns out. Located in Park Slope and TriBeCa, Brooklyn Game Lab has classes and camps for kids!
