It’s no secret that you can develop a successful career as a video game designer, and Teen U has the perfect opportunity for you to explore your interest in the field! Our one-week residential video game camp will take you through storytelling, art/design, and programming. You will finish the program with a playable game to show your friends, family, or college recruiter. It won’t be all work! We have trips planned to comic and gaming conventions, plus hours of time for gaming and gaming discussion with new friends.
