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?

I hope this helps!

I'm definitely going to miss someone in here. Definitely the most closest people to me on KW would be Huge, Jelly, Evie, Kirsten, Jordand, Allie and I'm definitely forgetting someone here because god, there are many now that I think of it. o.o Yeaaaah, I'm the type who can live with one best friend. The more, the better! Oh, if not mentioned, me best friends would know who they are and why they are and why they will be! :D
