      Reviewed on 08/09/2021 by Mike K.

      This camp is a total disaster organized by some 30-year-old children. We sent our teen to Game Camp Nation in Waltham this summer. The teens are barely supervised (almost no oversight--giving teens a free reign over a hotel is a recipe for a disaster), the organizers barely communicate with parents (and when they do, they are rude and immature), and the teens learn next to nothing. It's just a week+ of playing video games in a hotel. Having sent our other teens to plenty of camps, we have never had a camp experience as bad at Game Camp. Literally no redeeming qualities to this camp.
