Video Game Design Camps

Technology camps are more popular all the time and one interesting development in the whole genre is the focus on specific skills such as video game design. Children and teenagers are awed by the world of video game design and multimedia. Video game design camps enable kids to develop their creativity, fantasy characters and secret quests. You will learn to design video games in the unique environment of a kids' summer camp. Students of all skill levels can create their own virtual worlds.

Camps for video game design help foster team spirit and develop some basic skills needed for succeeding in the technology industry. Students learn level design and function, creation of 3 dimensional characters, lighting, sound effects and programming with the best tools and technologies available today. Guest speakers at video game design camps share design insights and an inside look at working in this huge and exciting industry. Some camps may offer a look inside top Canadian game design studios.

Video game design camps may also have specialised programs like RPG Game Design, and design for action games, strategy games or Nintendo® DS, as well as advanced programming, to name a few. iPhone and iPad apps, websites with Flash, C++ and Java programs, 3D models and animations, graphic design, robotics and digital filmmaking can also be taught at video game design camps and computer camps. Game design camps offer the best hands-on experience in a supportive and fun environment. Students may be using the same software people that designers and editors use all over the world. Accreditation and a gaming portfolio are additional benefits you can get at these camps that are fun and educational at the same time.

On top of all that, there is still plenty of time for other camp activities like tournaments, sports, barbeques, campus tours, teambuilding events and much more.

The video game design and creation industry continues to develop, cultivating and promoting the absolute best in creativity and teamwork. A camp like this exposes a young adult to a highly creative environment. Video game design has a lot of different avenues of approach from writing/scripting to 3d modeling, graphics generation, database management, level design and so on. Expert instructors at these camps offer personalized 1-on-1 instruction.

Video game design camps offer plenty of avenues and options for teenagers and children to develop their creative skills and gain an insight into the highly dynamic industry of game design. Learn more from the camps listed below.
