Get ready for Game Camp 2021

Why just play video games when you can learn to create and produce your own? Hosted by the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, Game Camp is a unique, hands-on opportunity for middle and high school students to learn intensive video game creation, visualization and production. You will use the latest software, hardware and development tools to create concepts and prototypes for 2-D and 3-D video gaming. Student to instructor ratios are very low in game camp, Professor Kobayashi and one TA for every 5 students makes it a very focused, individual experience.



The tuition for Middle School and High School Camp is $650. Both include a $50 nonrefundable processing fee. Payment must be made online. This is the official game camp held at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
