  • Video Game Creation — Arcade Style, Introductory to Intermediate: July 12 – 15, 2021

    The Arcade course is a program where the game that is created has an action for  each level all on one screen, similar to Centipede, Asteroids, or PacMan. The children  create the main character, which can be anything. Other characters, or enemies,  pursue the main character who dodges their attacks. The character will score points  for picking up objects and destroying the enemy objects. Options are endless, and  children create level after level and have a fun time. As with all of our game creation  options, this camp encourages creativity, storytelling, programming, and problem  solving for their young minds.
