This summer YOU can STEP INTO THE FUTURE at Virtual Reality Camp with Game Design!


Join us to create your own VIRTUAL WORLDS and implement game design features.  With a focus on exploration and adventure games, your game can be designed for multiple platforms like PC, phone, iPad, and even virtual reality headsets. With virtual reality game design you will encounter exciting challenges, and will utilize platform components to control your game and determine events and conditions.

In addition, campers focus on the aesthetics of the game, and bringing a virtual reality world to life.

In a virtual world, gaming can feel even more lifelike, and campers are challenged to use these features to create an awesome final product!

Going above and beyond game design, and examining the “Big Picture” of Virtual Reality, the camp explores how virtual reality is changing the world, and how it can be utilized to improve life as we know it!

What are some AWESOME things that you can CREATE at VR Camp?  Here are some COOL projects you can make:

A Menu: Place the user in the center of a curved array of screens from which you can select mini games.

The Flyer: As the player, you will guide a ship through space, shooting asteroids and flying through gates to score points within a defined time.

The Maze: Create an incredible top-down-view game that uses a combination of head tracking and button input to guide your hero to safety, without being destroyed by the obstacles and bosses it may face.

360 Degrees Arena Challenges: Create an arena full of challenges and events that test your speed, skill, and hand-eye coordination!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Stay Ahead of The Curve: In technology, it is always great to be on the cutting edge.  By immersing yourself in the VR platform, you will learn the latest in game design!

Design & Aesthetics: Make your game more lifelike and beautiful by designing for Virtual Reality.

Explore other Features:  By utilizing VR for game design, you can also explore the many other benefits of producing a virtual experience.

Think BIG Picture:  How can Virtual Reality improve the lives of humans?  Whether it’s through exercise, simulated traveling experience, educational enrichment, sports training, or more, this is a wide open space, waiting for you to discover and take to the next level!

Complete an Awesome Project: Create and take home an impressive, NEXT GENERATION game!  So many of our campers say VR games are cool and interesting to make, and super fun to play!

On Friday, campers will present their VR Games to the camp for beta testing and a gaming showcase!

All Campers receive a Lavner Camps t-shirt and leave with their very own project!

Please note: Only campers ages 13 and up may use the Oculus headset. For campers younger than 13, other VR options are available through our VR Cardboard/Phone system.
