Location & Hours
Do you spend all day dreaming up the next big video game? Want to know how to bring the creatures in your sketchbook to life? Love the feeling of cracking codes and saving the world? Then Game Worlds video game summer camp is the place for you!
Game Worlds is a camp where kids ages 10-18 learn the skills needed to make their very own video games. At Game Worlds, real-world developers guide kids through a crash course into how games are made, and help students bring their vision to life through practical skills such as programming, design, testing, business, writing, audio engineering, and art. Students come away with a game they’ve created!
With new game design challenges given every week, Game Worlds students get the chance to solve problems creatively, work with kids in their age group, and build innovative pieces of interactive software. Games created by the students in our program have not only been fun, but often explore topics such as science, sociopolitical issues, cultural storytelling, and engineering, making them the ultimate educational experiences. From pizza-loving dinosaurs that fight robots with fluffy kittens, to ancient Greek gods fortifying their underwater labyrinths, the possibilities are endless. We believe giving students tools to create their own game worlds can open up their potential to change the real world.
Our curriculum is developed by real game developers, which means that students will always get relevant, practical, and up-to-date knowledge. At Game Worlds, students have the opportunity to not only meet these developers, but ask them questions, present their games to them, and develop mentorships. We also offer additional instruction on a voluntary basis, which gives students a chance to dig deeper into subjects that they love. Our staff members cherish the opportunity to work with kids, and are eager to share their experiences in game development with the next generation.
