Summer vacation is not intended to let kids sit glued in front of the TV. Rather holidays are provided to help children develop their personality by engaging in social, funfilled and educational activities. If you were one such parent who is fed-up of your kid’s TV habits, a good idea would be to enroll them to a summer fun camp. Today, various types of summer fun camps are being organized by professional companies to cater to different interests and expertise of kids. Some of the popular summer camps themes for kids are photography, movie and video filmmaking camp. However, these days’ game design and video game programming camps are highly popular amongst students.

Summer Fun With Learning

Focus of contemporary summer camps is to help kids engage in playful physical activities and get some learning as well. These days, physical activity of children is reduced as they spend more time in front of TV or playing video games. Parents are worried that if they send their kids for only academic courses their child’s physical growth will be hampered. On the other hand, only sports oriented course will make them miss out on mental growth. Modern summer camps are being designed to do away with this dilemma of parents. These are a wonderful blend of learning with fun. For instance, in Surf and Tech programme by iD Tech Camps, campers are given a chance to indulge in playful physical activities in morning and in the next-session they get the opportunity to learn about video game programming.

Benefits Of Learning Video Game Programming

Video game programming involves several human faculties such as creativity, logical thinking, visual design and effective coordination. As kids these days are extremely interested in playing video games, they find video game programming also very engrossing. So when they put their heart and soul in this course they will not only learn about the particular subject but they will also attain mental growth, which helps them in the long run.

While learning video game designing, students learn about a variety of skills and disciplines. For instance while developing the concept of the program students learn writing skills, storytelling skills, graphic design and architectural skills. During the playability stage students get to learn about logic, flowcharting, storyboarding along with the basics of economics. While designing program for the game, students learn about using software such as Clickteam® Multimedia Fusion 2 Developer®, Adobe® Photoshop® and Adobe Illustrator®.

Learning about video game is not limited for computer techies only, it is for all kids and teenagers who have a creative mind and enjoy playing the games. Another special aspect of video game programming is that it is a very elastic pursuit. It is as challenging for a beginner as it is for a professional. Students can convert this hobby to a lucrative profession later on in their life. Creative and talented students can even earn huge amounts of money by selling their video games online.

There are plenty of game design camps being organized for students between 7-18 years of age. You can enroll your child for a simple or more advanced course depending on their interest and expertise. iD Tech is a reputed company that organizes various game design camps during summer vacations.
