In our Junior Video Game Design camp, campers learn what it takes to design a video game. Using the latest game design technology from Stagecast, we develop characters, write rules for our characters to move, and introduce challenges into our game. When we complete each of the video games we make in camp, kids showcase their games for fellow campers to play.

Who Can Attend
Made specifically for younger children ages 7-9, Junior Video Game Design camp is a great introduction into computer programming and logic-based thinking. No previous video game design experience is needed.
What Kids Will Learn
Kids will learn video game design using Stagecast Creator software technology.
Children will learn how to create gaming characters. They will also learn how to create rules to make their characters walk but not accidentally walk through walls, pick up gold coins, make sound effects, and add backgrounds. They will learn how to program the keyboard to control their character. Together, the students write a story for their character and design a video game to coincide. Students will play each other’s game, offering compliments, suggestions, and encouragement along the way. At the end of camp, each child is provided access to a trial version of the Stagecast software, and a library of graphics and sounds to develop new games at home.
This class is a great introduction into basic video game design. Students will receive a USB flash drive with their video games they create in camp. Campers can take them home each night during camp to show the work they’re accomplishing each day, and keep it after camp is over.
Each year, Classroom Antics revamps our entire tech camp curriculum with fresh new video games, LEGO robots, stop-motion movies, and computer programs to create at summer camp. And this year is no different.
For summer 2014, our entire curriculum has been revitalized and themed around a kid-friendly central topic, Superhero Adventure!
Video games, LEGO robots, stop-motion movies, and computer programs will be focused around Superheroes and the job they do to help people.
