Which camp is right for my child?
Our camps are targeted at different age ranges.
Little Heroes is for kids in Kindergarten and Year 1.
Kids use a mix of online and offline activities to start learning basic of how to think and approach problems like a coder.
They also explore programming through a range of different iPad apps.
Spark is for kids in grades 2-6.
We welcome beginners and those who've never coded before, but we also have returning campers along!
Campers will be building a "platformer" game, similar to Super Mario Bros or Sonic the Hedgehog. Kids will learn the basics such as how to create their own virtual world, how to populate that world with characters, and how to make those characters interact all using our software and drag and drop coding. At the end of camp they will come away with their own downloadable game app!
Ignite is for kids in grades 2-6.
Usually kids come to Game Makers have learned some code before, such as at our Spark camp, or they might be in the later grades and so need more of a challenge.
In class, the kids will be creating their own virtual world just like in Spark. This time however, they create a series of mini games as well! So they get to learn a whole lot of other coding functions!
Blast 3D is aimed at students in grades 3-7.
Campers will create a multi-level game with more challenging features in their very own 3-dimensional world.
