Want to play games and learn to design them this summer? Check out the 411 on this totally cool video game summer camp!

Do you have plans for the summer? Well you do now! Gary's got the 411 on a totally wicked summer camp for gamers. If you're a peep who lives near Penn State, you're totally in luck. Penn State Great Valley has put together a video game summer camp that'll teach you how games are made, plus it'll let you play all the latest & greatest games in tournaments and for fun.

The camp is called the Videogame Animation and Web Design Summer Experience. It's open for kids from Grade 7 to Grade 12 and it's a two-week program. You'll learn the basics of animating graphics, web design, and how to create a video game plot complete with heroes, villains and cool orange dudes with space helmets. They'll show you how to use Flash, Photoshop and HTML so you can create graphics that'll dazzle your friends! Also, don't forget the weekly game tournaments to see who's the greatest gamer.

There are three Videogame Animation and Web Design Summer Experience camps happening. Here are the dates:

  • July 7, 2003 - July 18, 2003
  • July 21, 2003 - August 1, 2003
  • August 4, 2003 - August 15, 2003

The bad news is that it costs serious bling bling to get in on this much gaming fun. The two-week camp costs $695 US ($1050 CDN) so it's not for everyone. There are scholarships available though - for info check the link below!

Penn State Great Valley Summer Youth Programs

1I was looking for a summercamp for youths to learn how to play and design video games. I located you under search but couldn't find the link. Please help and provide me with the summer camp info. Is there anything available in California? If so, where and how much?

Banned for driving me to end the silence and driving me to say:*Coconuts are a nice fruit and it's as delicious as people think it is. In other words I don't mind if you have your own opinion. I don't mind at all. So even if you have a negative opinion on long paragraphs, I will respect that and let you know that you never need to read all of this. It's just here as part of my ban to Abbergrl. It doesn't matter if you read this because she is still banned. I have nothing against her, Abbergrl is queen. You slay grl. No pun intended. Actually it was definitely intended. Would I lie to you? Na! I should be doing something important but instead I'm doing this. All in the name of queen Abbergrl of the KW kingdom. I shall now bow down to her even though I'm banning her. What is up with me? And what is up with you? Why are you still reading this? Who knew people were so attentive? I wish I was like that TBH; how I envy you. Gah, I'd give anything. Except my family, friends, and electronics. I'd make a shout out to all of them but they won't be reading this and neither is anyone else. If you're still reading this, wow. I apologise if some of my questioning is overdone. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Sometimes I'm repetitive. Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? Maybe you lost your place in this paragraph, who knows? I love a good mystery. Ever read any mysteries and realised that the evilest looking people are never guilty? Never judge a book by its cover. Known fact: I have never screamed or cried at any movies. Known fact 2: I have written longer nonsensical paragraphs. Yeah I don't like to bore people, even though I just did, so I'll end it here. I warned you there was no point to this. Grey squirrels eat bagels but purple squirrels like knitting, why are circles round? Tulips, because 64 is not an ice cream. Oh, and coconuts for life.*
