The GameTech Institute was created not only to be an entertaining and fun adventure in video game creation, but also to show the educational side of video games, their development and the social interaction which is now available through the newest systems.

With the help of experienced "gameologists" and teachers, your children will develop skills and knowledge that will help them in their future careers.

Children use their unique imagination and creativity to create their own video games in a fun, interactive and supportive environment. We start with an introduction to game design, animation and story development. While creating their own computer games our campers will use basic computer science, which incorporates math, physics, art and fun. Campers get a chance to test and improve their skills in weekly video game tournaments where everybody is a winner!

Each camper goes home with a completed video game that he or she can share with friends and family.
