This summer, watch your child’s imagination come to life as they dream, create and play their own video games. Create & Play camps offer children 8-16 the opportunity to hone their math, science and technology skills through the creation of video games and applications. While the child “plays” they learn critical thinking, teamwork, problem solving, confidence, and leadership skills. Each game includes a real-life application so campers can take their game into the gym and teach their fellow campers how to play.

“Students solve problems that require them to seek out and synthesize knowledge from different domains. They become intelligent and resourceful as they learn how to find and use information in meaningful ways.”

Create and Play Camps are located in the state-of-the-art Grand Park Fieldhouse in Westfield, Indiana. This 80,000 square foot facility allows the children the opportunity to play their game in addition to other fun physical and team building activities lead by our team of tech-savvy camp counselors.

“A recent study “found evidence to indicate that the game-authoring activity stimulated higher order thinking skills.”

At Create & Play, our goal is to empower the next generation of coders, app developers, game designers, engineers and innovators. Whether your child attends one session or multiple sessions, their future in the world of technology begins here.

“Students act as sociotechnical engineers, thinking about how people interact with systems and how systems shape both competitive and collaborative social interaction.”
