Do you love video games? Are you ready to create your own? This camp is an introduction into the exciting world of game development! Throughout the week, you will learn the basic concepts of game design, character design and development, game play, basic coding, and more! Campers will explore tutorials with their instructor and work individually throughout the week to create their own custom game. Don’t forget to bring your own USB flash drive so work can be saved and brought home.
