For the kids

If you like to play video games and hang out with friends, then you’ll love this camp. Every day is set up to give you time to play, and you’ll be in the room with other kids your age, so there’ll be fun stuff we can do together offline too. Check out the camp themes to see which experience sounds best to you.

For parents / guardians

If you’re looking for something fun, healthy and mentally stimulating for your kids to do this summer, then our esports day camp could be just the thing. Every day will include a healthy mix of video game play, plus fun and educational group activities. Each session features a particular esports game that becomes the inspiration for offline, applied learning lessons designed by our friends at iNSL. Our goal is to help campers to see how esports connects in interesting and practical ways to real world opportunities. The games and lesson plans vary from week to week. Check the camp themes to see which ones sound best for your family, or feel free to sign up for multiple sessions.

iNSL 5 Day T.E.A.M. Camps help gamers develop a cohesive teamwork strategy through group design projects that require individual contributions. Most camps include 3 or more "hands-on" STEM skills projects that build toward a showcase of the week's activities. Gamers take away a design portfolio that includes logbook notes, sketches, plans and projects to accompany time spent enjoying esports online.
