Game Camp Nation is a great experience for all ages. I have had so much fun there and can't wait to go back for my fourth year. The counselors are all wonderful and fun to be around. Everyone there is super nice. I love the camp and everyone there, I can't wait to go back this summer.- Erin - January 15, 2016
"We are enthusiastic supporters of Game Camp Nation and the opportunities it has provided our son the last 4 summers. He enjoys access to the latest technology and the opportunities to learn from knowledgeable and talented instructors. Our son first attended Game Camp Nation as a day camper. He was so impressed with what he was learning and the great time he was having with new friends that he begged to go back for an additional week .which he did. The following summer he switched to the overnight program, and I was concerned because he took several prescription medications. I need not have worried because the counselors took charge of the medications. The administrators have gone out of their way to accommodate special circumstances that our family presents. For example, last summer when basketball camp conflicted with the Columbus location dates, they took on added responsibility for our son to attend camp at the Philadelphia location. Each summer our son has looked forward to making new friends and reconnecting with old ones as well as learning programming skills and participating in the gaming tournaments. He speaks highly of the teachers and counselors, and I have found them to be professional; they meet our son at his level of technical understanding and challenge him with new, fun material each summer."- Mary Beth - January 15, 2016
