The Louisiana Technology Park in Baton Rouge is hosting two summer camps focused on game development for kids. All skill levels, from beginner to advanced, are welcome and no experience is required.
Camp #1, 8-Bit Bootcamp, is an 8-day crash course in programming and game development fundamentals. The camp will take place in June and is designed for youth ages 11-17 to build, develop and play video games from idea to creation.
LA Tech Park says mentors will be on-hand to guide students through the process of developing game ideas and bringing those ideas to life through a variety of digital tools.
Also in June, Camp #2, the Virtual Builder’s Camp: A Minecraft Experience, will have instructors showing kids how to design and build Minecraft masterpieces. Participants will sharpen their skills by learning commands, installing mods, and maybe even learning a few hacks. The Minecraft camp will run for four days for kids ages 7-11.
