Description

Calling all aspiring gamers in grades 7 to 10join us for a week-long, in-person summer esports camp at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design! Competitive esports is an increasingly mainstream platform that relies on creativity, collaboration, and communication. As a growing segment of the sports industry, esports requires skilled and trained creatives and designers. 

Under the supervision of facilitators and members of PCA&D’s collegiate esports team, the Peacocks, students will receive hands-on instruction and coaching. We’ll also explore the career opportunities and possibilities within other aspects of esports, such as game design and management. Afternoons will be dedicated to guest speakers and practicing techniques with PCA&D Peacock team members. Game play will focus on gamer fitness, understanding the game, refining your mechanics, teamwork, communication, and improving ability by leaving your comfort zone. Students will receive a certificate of completion on the last day. This camp is a perfect opportunity to take your interest in gaming to the next level. 

Game focus will be Overwatch with additional play in Rocket League and Fortnite. 

Campers must come to camp with an Overwatch for PC Account and Login information (Legendary or Standard Edition accounts are fine. Price range is $20-$40)

Please Note: 

Students should bring lunch and an afternoon snack to camp each day. Food brought to campus should NOT contain any nuts or seeds. PCA&D has refrigerators and microwaves for student use.
