In this full day children spend  half day camp,  creating a game using Kodu software, a new video game creation software developed by Microsoft.   The other half day will be spent at the Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- Intro (the Arcade Style Game). the camp director will assign the camper to one camp in the morning with the other in the afternoon depending on enrollment.

Camp descriptions are as follows:

Kodu Video Game Creation - Go–Kart Style (Ages 7-16)Children will create something similar to a Mario Go-Kart style game. What fun! Campers begin by designing their own world. Worlds can have mountains, valleys, lakes, hills, etc. or they can be a design unlike anything you have ever seen before. It's totally up to them! Next they place characters into the world and program them to move about, interacting with other characters, even talking using scripts written for the characters. They can program characters to pick up objects, engage opponents, and overcome villains. Children will use their creativity as they build a world full of racing tasks. Whether it is collecting enough diamonds before time expires, navigating through the challenging obstacle course, or racing against a friend they are sure to have fun! This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.

Video Game Creation - Arcade Style (Ages 8-16)
The Arcade course is a program where the game that is created has action for each level all on one screen similar to Centipede, Asteroids, or Pac Man. The main character (which the children create) can be anything. Other characters (enemies) pursue the main character from off the screen or move about the screen.  The character dodges the attacks of the enemies while scoring points for picking up objects and destroying the enemy objects. Options are endless and children create level after level for a full week of fun. This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
