ZapMil Game Design & Development Summer Camp Information and Registration:

Welcome to the world of Game Design & Development! In this summer course, you will learn the basic elements that it takes to create any game. You will explore, evaluate, and critique a variety of games.  Working with a team, you will develop your ideas and create your own game.  Highlights from this camp include:

  • STEAM-based curriculum: Each student will  enhance their STEM/STEAM skills while in the summer classroom. Using a variety of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics elements in each session, we emphasize smart AND fun learning.
  • Team-building: Team-building is critical for students as they develop skills to lead in their community and workplaces. We work with the student teams to build trust, mitigate conflict, encourage communication, and increase collaboration to prepare for success in the classroom and in the future workplace.
  • Soft-skills training: Our student learners know that soft-skills are a necessity in real world environments. Time management, problem-solving, strong verbal/written communication, constructive criticism, and leadership training are just a few we help develop in our sessions.
  • Work hard, play hard: Not just another manifesto.  Each student gains real experience by applying good work ethic and having fun at the same time.  The students are gaining future skills, which can be used in the popular tech industry.  Plus, they have the benefits of  enjoying the activity of game development outside of just “playing the game.”

Age Groups:
11-17 (Male and Female Students)  *Limited to 20 student maximum per camp!
