At this camp, it’s more than okay to be on your computer! Turn screen time into learning at Video Game Design: Level Up! camp, for ages 7-9. Similar to our intermediate video game design camp, Arcade Generation, this course offers an opportunity for kids to turn their love for video games and computer playing into a technology and engineering learning experience.
If your child is into technology, video games or computers, Level Up! will be a blast for them! Campers will design video games using Microsoft’s Kodu program. Similar to Minecraft, the video game they create will be block-based. Kids will gain understanding of visual programming and develop their problem solving and strategizing skills by taking on exciting challenges, creating fun characters and integrating innovative gameplay.
During camp, students are encouraged to play each other’s games, offering feedback, suggestions and encouragement. This is a great opportunity for kids to practice their social skills and continue to grow in comfort and confidence during social situations.
At the end of the week, campers bring home a provided USB to keep and share their video game with family and friends. Parents, you won’t be disappointed in the results and experiences gained from this engaging, enriching camp. You’ll be impressed that your child can produce such creative and technical works.
