Game Design

Kids 7–12

Imagine if students could transform their passion for playing video games into a passion for building them. In Game Design camp, students will explore the fundamentals of designing and developing multidimensional video games and will develop an understanding of what it takes to build a game from the ground up. Using the GameMaker Studio 2 platform, students will use visual scripting, pixel art creation, and fundamental programming skills to create imaginative, playable, and personally customized games that can be shared with family and friends. More so, they will leave with the versatile skills to create many more games from home.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do the satellite locations compare to the Winter Park location?

Students at each of our summer camp locations receive the same learning experiences with the same gear and equipment. However, students at our satellite locations receive a discount as our Winter Park location has access to Full Sail University’s campus. Because of campus amenities, our Teens’ Summer Camps are only available at Full Sail Labs Winter Park location.

What happens if a camp is cancelled?

Full Sail Labs reserves the right to cancel or postpone any camp due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If a camp is cancelled, registrants will be notified immediately and refunds will be processed.

All cancellations and withdrawals are subject to a $100 cancellation fee per camp, per child. No refunds are given after a camp begins.

Can I choose more than a week?

You can join us for as many weeks as you like during the summer and even choose the same subject. Since each subject is tailored to your child's interests, they'll have a whole new experience.

Do you provide lunch and snacks?

Students need to bring their own lunch and a preferred snack. We’ll provide water and some healthy snacks.

Are there early drop off and late pickup times?

Early drop off is from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. with late pick up available until 6:00 p.m.

If the week I want is full, is there a waiting list?

For those classes that are already full, we will maintain a waiting list. To get on the waiting list, you must complete an online application indicating the session in which you are interested. Credit card information is required but will not be charged at this point. As spaces become available, the first name in the waiting list will be called to offer the spot.

How are refunds processed?

If you need to cancel or withdraw from a camp, please notify our office as soon as possible, either by phone or in writing (mail or email). A cancellation fee will be applied. No refunds are given after a camp begins.

Can my child take the same Summer Camp more than once?

Yes. Each camp has different roles, and we adapt to the interests of the child within the project.

How do discounts work?

Discounts will be applied after checkout.
