Sold Out – Summer Camp Nerdies » Video Game Development (Ages 11-14)

July 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 9 am to 3 pm

Have you ever played a video game so amazing that you thought “I want to be a part of this”? Have you already thought of the next great app? In this session, you will learn how to start making your ideas a reality and become a Video Game Developer. In this summer camp, we’ll be creating a 2D game that can be shown to friends and family alike. Stop just playing games and start making them on your own. Along with learning programming through industry-standard video game development software, digital painting, and digital design, your child will learn to think as critically about game development. Campers will also be able to continue their exploration after camp is over – the software we’ll be teaching is free to use!
