    • “Sending my son Wilson to Game Camp Nation was one of my best decisions… For 7 years, it was the highlight of his summer. He not only played computer games in competition with his camp mates, but he also received a thorough understanding of how computer games are built and maintained. The structure and mentoring he received helped him change from a slightly shy child to a confident young man (as remarked by family and friends). Game Camp Nation also allowed Wilson the opportunity to begin mentoring some of his younger camp mates. His last two summers, he was proudest of his participation first as an unofficial counselor and then a paid counselor. Finally, Game Camp Nation provided him the opportunity to make and keep friends in any environment – personal and social skills that will serve him well as he embarks on his college career!”

    • “For the past 8 years, my son Quentin has attended Game Camp Nation and I am very impressed with the staff and the curriculum! Not only does the camp provide a positive, safe, and fun environment, but it also exposes the campers to computer programs like Maya, Python, Construct, and Java that are used in the gaming industry today. This camp introduced Quentin to technical skills like coding, 3D animation, character development, and audio and has sparked his interest in majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Video Game Development at Georgia State University. I really appreciate the personal time that Phil has taken to help mentor Quentin and provide internship opportunities. I view Game Camp Nation as an awesome investment!”
