Fortnite has taken the world by storm and it’s more than just a fun game. If you want to improve your skills, learn how it was created, and have endless fun with other kids your age who love the game as much as you do, then this is the place to be!

Our Fortnite camps have 4 major components:

1. Safe Practices: Sensitivity Training and Schedule Optimization – At the start of camp, campers participate in sensitivity training for gaming, and understanding the difference between fictional game play and the real world.  Additionally, campers learn how to come up with a playing schedule that allows for mental and physical breaks. Campers learn about a variety of stretches and exercises which can also help to optimize game play performance and reinforce best practices for healthy gaming.

2. Level design with Unreal Engine – Work with Unreal Engine, the development environment used by professional game studies to make Fortnite as well as games such as Street Fighter V, Kingdom Hearts III, Mass Effect 2, and many more. Design your own Fortnite style level with gameplay features and take home your project at the end of the week.

3. Improving Skills and Strategy – Fortnite is more that just running around, finding items, and surviving – there’s a lot of fascinating strategy involved! At camp, you’ll work on improving mechanical skill – your building speed and repertoire, aim, and strategic planning – starting out in the best areas, farming resources optimally, when to engage or run, pathing, and awareness.  The goal is to improve your game sense and performance through lessons and tips developed by our strategic research, in addition to practice, play, and analysis of your gameplay. Not to mention working together in person as squads – there’s distributing resources, coordination, callouts, and so much more!

4. Action packed gameplay and competitions! – Get live Fortnite tournament experience by putting your skills and hard work to the test and competing in our  competitions at camp! You have the option to play both solo and in camper squads.
