Campers take a half day of chess in our USA Chess program and a half day of our Gamebuilder Video Game Creation- (the Platform Style Game) Program. 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.

Camp descriptions are as follows:

Chess Camp (Ages 8-16)

n

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 - Platform Style (Ages 8-16)

n

 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.
