Experience the exciting process of game development in a week-long collaborative camp tailored for middle schoolers. Modeled after a game design startup company, campers will work in teams to craft characters, develop assets, and create a plan for an immersive exploration interactive game. This unique experience incorporates core principles of animation throughout the creation process.

Each day, campers will delve into the world of video game development. They’ll gain hands-on experience with character animation, environment art, concepting, writing, and more. By the end of the camp, participants will not only have a tangible build of their game but also a valuable perspective on the world of indie game development. We’ll celebrate the new game by introducing the trailer and playing the game with family and friends on the last day of camp.

Join us for a week of creativity, collaboration, and skill-building that will leave your middle schooler inspired and equipped with newfound knowledge in the exciting realm of game design.
