"My boys, now age 13 and 16, have attended Game Camp Nation for years. They spend all summer (or more) in eager anticipation, and the rest of the year is dotted with anecdotes, in-jokes, and stories from their times at camp. They actually rate Game Camp Nation above Christmas! As a parent, I'm pleased with the opportunities they have to make new friends, and learn to create games. I've watched in near awe as one son used a game designer software package to create a new game in minutes, working faster than I could follow. And, although neither of them has yet to be bitten by the bug to program more, they do keep up with the programming lessons, and have learned to do art and design as well. As a software engineer myself, I'll keep hoping. Game Camp Nation has given them some fabulous growth experiences, and become a highlight of their year."
“Game Camp Nation is a great place to go and be yourself; a place where you can make new friends and learn new skills. I had an amazing experience throughout the five years that I have attended. I've met some cool friends and staff and have enjoyed the gaming tournaments as well as the instructional sessions. The camp group project is always fun and makes the camp refreshing, which helped make a difference for my experience. Since the camp is held at a hotel, there is a really unique overnight option where campers can stay at the hotel, making it more fun since you are able to use the hotel's facilities. The counselors at camp are very knowledgeable and friendly and make the camp fun; and I valued the chance to be a counselor through the Junior Counselor program. It's fun to be able to use the skills you learn during camp to make your own video game and be able to see the custom characters that you coded yourself.”
