Description

 

 Children will be take a full day camp consisting of two half day courses. Each course is a different style game using the popular Kodu video game creation software: Kodu ( the Go Cart Style Game) and a Kodu (the Adventure Style video game). The camp director will assign the child to either of the two Kodu game creation courses in the morning based upon enrollment, the age of the campers, and other factors.  Children will transition to the other course after the lunch break. Course 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.
 
 
Kodu Video Game Creation - Adventure Style (Ages 7-16)
Children will have the option of learning how to program a game for their Windows 7 or higher PC or using a Microsoft Xbox controller! Students learn game design as they create their own cool custom world and navigate through it. Within this world they will create tasks that need to be completed in order to progress to the next level. Tasks include a first person maze game format where the students create a maze and the character must escape the maze, a survival mode, and tasks such as outwitting rivals, creating decoys and collecting bonus items all while having fun! This is a half-day camp. Xbox controller is optional and supplied by the student. The controller must be a hard wired controller and NOT a wireless controller. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
 
Children receive a camp T-shirt, certificate of completion, trophy and instructions on how to download the free software to run the game at home.
