Design Games Like a Pro at Tech Revolution Online!
Campers go through the process of creating a video game – brainstorming, planning, character design, level design, programming, user interface design and much more! After learning the Graphical User Interface in GameMaker™: Studio, campers begin to plan their game by crafting a storyline and developing characters using the advanced, built-in, digital painting software. Once their characters are created, campers learn about level design and lay out floor plans with an easy-to-use, efficient tiling technique that allows for excellent control and precision. Once the basic visuals are established, campers begin to program the character movement and interactions within their game. Offering a vast database of game design concepts, and sharp graphics, GameMaker™ is a great step towards professional level design and an even bigger step towards top-level creativity and innovation!
Valuable Learning Opportunities include creating an incredible look, feel, and appeal for a game, working with professional level software, and boosting your coding skills!
Best User Experience: Our camps require a stable internet connection. Campers may also want to use headphones if their device is not located in a quiet space. You may want your child to use a virtual background when logged into Zoom if you would like to block out the view of your child’s actual background – this is compatible with a wide variety of computers.
Compatible Devices: Windows PC, Mac
This camp is for beginner and intermediate programmers.

Question #1: What makes Camp Tech Revolution Online so unique?
Answer: Camp Tech Revolution Online is the only camp which utilizes the proprietary Tech Revolution curricula along with state-of-the art online technology to provide a dynamic and engaging camp experience no matter where you are!

Answer: We guarantee a max staff-to-camper ratio of 1:5 to 1:10… or better! We strive to create a camp environment where campers receive excellent supervision and high levels of attention during instructional periods.
Question #3: Who are your instructors?
Answer: Our instructors are the very best out of a large pool of qualified applicants we consider. We hire less than 3% of applicants. Typically, our lead instructors consist of teachers, college professors, undergrad/grad students from top-tier/Ivy League colleges/universities, and the occasional superstar student entering college in the fall. Assistant instructors typically consist of accomplished rising seniors. Our instructors are extremely knowledgeable in the subject area, passionate about working with kids, highly responsible, and all have cleared background checks. Instructors go through a rigorous orientation and training prior to the summer camp season and have constant support from on-site camp directors and our central office. We put them in a position to succeed… and they do!
Question #4: Do campers usually attend for one week or more than one week?
Answer: Camper attendance varies. Most campers attend for multiple weeks, and can move up in curriculum if selecting the same course for more than one week. All of our courses have multiple levels of curriculum and lots of additional activities and projects for all skill levels.
Question #5: How do you group the campers at camp?
Answer: Campers are grouped by age and ability. We run multiple levels of curriculum in each camp, allowing for campers to attend camp with us at any time during the summer, even if they are beginners. Our campers can sign up for any week and be placed appropriately in camp. This provides our camp families with maximum flexibility.
Question #6: Do campers improve their skills at camp?
Answer: Yes! Campers receive approximately 12.5 hours of concentrated time in their camp activity per week. This, combined with our cutting-edge curriculum and high level instructors, allows our campers to improve a lot! They are also attending with other campers who share similar interests, which fosters learning through peer to peer interaction.
Question #7: How do you keep camp fun?
Answer: We hire fun and dynamic instructors! Campers are also selecting subjects that interests them. We offer a great balance of specialized activities, socialization, competitions, and much more!
Question #8: Do you have a camp director?
Answer: Yes! A camp director manages the Tech Revolution Online experience! The director is trained to ensure the daily operations at camp are running smoothly and that campers are having a great time and learning a lot.
