About this camp

You’ve played now time to design!

With this summer camp being focussed on 3d game programming for kids, your child will master visual scripting tools*, enabling them to embrace the power of coding without the complexity of programming syntax. They will learn how to create exhilarating custom behaviours and incredible game mechanics using best practices. On the coding side they will master essential programming concepts such as variables, branching, looping, events and more! This camp also covers the basics of 3D modelling.

The focus of our kids’ video game design courses and summer camps are very much on fun. When you drop them off in the morning, you can have the peace of mind that they will be in a secure and safe environment, whilst learning the core elements in how to design their own games. 

Our kids’ video game camps are very popular and tend to fill up quickly so please book now to avoid disappointment.
