Description

 

Campers experience a half day of our Computer Animation camp  and a half day of the Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- Platform Style camp. The camp director will assign the child to one of the camps in the morning based upon the number of campers, ages, etc.  and then they will attend the other camp in the afternoon.

During the Animation half day program, campers learn to create computer animation projects using Scratch (a freeware animation tool). Scratch allows campers to program interactions between characters, actions such as walking, talking, jumping and dancing and to  add photo images, music and graphics to create stories that are interesting, entertaining, and fun.  The campers learn basic programming skills and have the opportunity to broaden their imaginations.

Video Game Creation - Platform Style (Ages 8-16)
In this camp children build a game described as a "platform" game like Sonic or Mario. Children have a blast as their characters do the impossible, overcome obstacles and enemies and then conquer the Big Boss.  The character progresses on a long path (like a journey) with the background scrolling behind it and adversaries, prizes, obstacles, are encountered as it goes. Lessons on the basics will be similar to the Arcade course in the very beginning, but the class diverges and different programming techniques are taught in order to build this Platform game. This is a half-day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
