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 (by Microsoft) or GameMaker  software (by YoYo Games).  Children will take the Kodu (the Adventure Style video game) for ½ day and the Gamebuilder (the Arcade Style) Video Game creation camp for the other half day. The camp director will assign the child to either of the two 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:

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.

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 games, play the games,  continue to create new games or add levels at home.
