Summer Camp - Online: Coding 2D Games
DESCRIPTION: In our Game Design Summer Camp, your child will finally answer the question ‘How can I make my own video game?’ They will learn how to design and code their own 2D games using the popular program Scratch. Any skill level can advance their knowledge and add to their own personal arcade of games as we build 3-4 games in our week long camp.
-Full refund, up until 3 weeks prior to start date.
-No credits nor refunds for absences due to illness or otherwise.
-Easy change of weekly camps if your schedule changes, with advance notice and based on availability.
TECH SET UP:
PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING PRIOR TO THE START OF CAMP! The use of caps, bold, italics is because not taking these steps in advance will reduce the cool things we can accomplish, and lessen the experience for everyone. We see the frustration on young, and adult faces as everyone waits while families that didn’t follow these steps catch up. If you have questions, please call us prior to class at 424-280-4654. Thank you in advance for improving this experience for everyone.
