 Campers take a half day of chess in our USA Chess program and a half day of our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation Intro (the Arcade Style Game).   The camp director will assign them to either one  in the morning.  And then, after the lunch break they will complete the selected course that was not taken in the AM.

Chess (Ages 8-16)

 Campers experience a half day of chess lessons and play in a fun filled environment. Lessons are designed to improve campers' skills whether children are interested in casual or competitive chess. Our skilled professional instructors chosen for their abilities to make chess learning fun use a range of teaching tools including demo boards, computer tutorials, worksheets, stories and historic games to keep class time exciting. Each half day consists of two hour lessons tailored to the ability of the children and one hour of practice to play against other students and instructors.

Video Game Creation - Arcade Style (Ages 8-16)

n

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.
