Love to game? Interested in making your own ideas come to life? Let’s take your skills to the next level and show you how to design and make your own games!
Learn the basics of game design…by making your own games! Students will code in Scratch to design computer and web-based games that involve keyboard interactions, gravity manipulation, and intermediate coding skills! Games include: Maze Race, Dodger Game, Platform Jumping Game, DIY stories, Interactive Quiz Game, and a Custom Final Project.
Over the course of four days, students will learn to story-board their ideas, and then translate them to life using step-by-step coding techniques. All students will work individually on their own projects - so it will be a 1:1 student/laptop ratio.
This camp targets 5th to 8th grade game designers. An alternative camp for 3rd to 5th graders will cover similar material but will be slower paced and end with less complex games.


• Students will work individually on a laptop. We are able to provide laptops for all students. However, students are encouraged to bring their own laptop if they have one. This will allow them to more easily continue their learning after camp. We will help install proper software, which will allow campers to continue working on their projects once camp has ended. • Please pack your child a re-usable water bottle, 2-3 snacks to enjoy during snack break, and a bag lunch. Also, be sure to dress them in comfy shoes as we will be playing some games outside! • Optional extended care (AM & PM) and lunch is available with additional purchase at check out. • Want more info?
