Kids Learning Code Gamemaking Summer Camp

What's better than playing your favourite video games? Tapping into your limitless creativity and making your own games! With Canada Learning Code's half-day video game boot camp, you'll get to create the video game of your dreams.

Campers will test games, discuss game theory, and work in a team to create their very own digital games. We'll create personalized soundtracks and sound effects, sketch out characters, and design all of the visual assets needed to bring our games to life. After beta testing and publishing to the web, campers will also code their very own websites from scratch to promote their game. Join us for the end-of-session demos to see what they’ve created and to test their games out for yourself!

This camp is for kids ages 9-12. Through hands-on, collaborative, project-based learning, kids end each day having built something new and completely their own. This camp experience is designed to help kids see technology in a whole new light – as a medium for self-expression, and as a means for changing the world. No experience is necessary, our camps are designed for absolute beginners!

Location: 201 Space - located on the second floor of The Forks Market beside Dconstruct Jewellery and Coal and Canary.
