Do you love games? Board games, digital games, video games?  This is the camp for you!  We will take a closer look at game design and the design process to modify existing games.  Campers will also be learning and using Scratch, the block-based programming language.  No prior experience is necessary! At the end of the camp, campers will be able to submit their designs to the Games for Change annual student game design competition.
