About Esports Teen Camp
Esports Teen Camp is a new camp experience that has been specifically designed for tech-savvy teens who enjoy competitive gaming and have an interest in meshing their interests and skills. We will use project-based learning activities to explore different types of gaming and media, as well as different team-building activities that promote positive social development and technological fluency. Teens who participate in this camp experience will have the opportunity to take part in several different activities, including:
- Team-oriented gaming and practice
- Game strategy and exploration
- An introduction to broadcast, production, and streaming software
- Competitive play with assistance and pointers from specialist instructors, squad leaders, and other campers
- Non-digital team building games and activities
- End-of-Session tournament event that shows the growth of campers through gameplay and production. This will be a recorded video that is shared with campers’ parents after the sessions is over.
