Game Camp Nation has been one of the bright spots in my son's summer, and he always looks forward to going. He loves getting together with kids who enjoy the various aspects of gaming the way he does, as well as learning programming and other aspects of game creation. This is why he started going both weeks in our area. Phil and staff do a great job organizing and staying current. Our experience, it's a terrific camp for youth who are passionate about computers and gaming. Entertaining and a learning experience in a positive atmosphere with like-minded campers.- Rich - January 15, 2016
Game Camp Nation is a fun and interactive approach to learning about and designing video games. Not only do you get to learn coding, graphics design, and stop-motion animation, you also participate in tournaments for all different types of games. I really enjoy my time there, and come back every year that I can. GCN is an amazing place that provides fun and interesting challenges, and then lets you kick back and play video games. Its the best when you can stay nights, because you get even more time to socialize with people, watch movies if you want to, and you get more time on the computers to do whatever you want after a normal camp day is over! All in all its a great experience and I would encourage others to come!- Alex - January 15, 2016
