Camp Make-A-Game is a week-long program where campers design and play indoors and outdoors!

Mornings are spent indoors with digital screen instruction, teaching campers to use a number of point-and-click tools. Because these tools don’t require coding, most of the instruction can focus on design principles like game mechanics or game feel and not just be focused on technical hurdles. Afternoons are spent outdoors, discussing and playing physical games like tag and soccer — and then the kids will re-design the rules and play the modified games, learning about design while getting some exercise.

This experience has not only built up our capacity to teach kids, but also given us a lot of experience in teaching via physical games as well as digital game instruction. The interplay between physical games and digital game instructions not only promotes an active lifestyle, but gives campers a deeper understanding of the principles of game design that transcend the digital space.
