Video/Game Camp

Video/Game Camp is a place for kids to learn about and explore video games as a way to tell stories and express ideas. During this camp kids will expand abilities and deepen their understanding about how video game technology functions in the world around them. Campers will play games, make videos about them, and create their own games.

They learn not only how to use the technology, but how to use rhetoric to communicate their ideas ineffective and substantive ways.
