The camp will be held on the campus of St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, or online if St. Mary’s University or government entities restrict face-to-face summer camps due to COVID-19.

  • Requirements

    • 7th and 8th grade girls (as of the 2020-2021 school year) will be taken under consideration, but 8th graders take priority. Proof of school grade will be required.
    • Prerequisite: Typing (at least know where the keys are on a keyboard)
    • Limited to 18 campers

Most children will have played more than 10,000 hours of computer games by the time they are out of school, and there is more money in the computer gaming industry than in the movie industry. Gaming is big.

In this five-day camp, you will learn about designing and creating games for entertainment and educational purposes using a free and popular game development tool. You will design and make a game to compete for prizes and show off to the group.
