Video-Game Designer Camp* (3rd – 6th grade) ** NEW2018**
Stop just playing video games and start creating them! In this introductory class participants will learn how to program and create their very own video games. We will learn how to create sprites, objects, levels, backgrounds, sound effects and much more as we create several games that can be shared with family and friends! We'll create a multi-level, customized adventure game complete with zombies, potions, coins, trap doors, and so much more! Participants should bring a flash drive in order to save and take their games home with them.
LEGO® Robotics & Engineering* (1st – 6th grade)
Using the latest LEGO® Power Functions and LEGO® robotics technology, participants will have an opportunity to explore the amazing world of LEGO® robotics and engineering. We will learn about gears, circuits, and computer programming as we design, build, and program a variety of different robotics and engineering projects. Over 50 different projects are available including motorized cars and walkers, remote-controlled tanks, and amusement park rides. We’ll also use iPads to program and control projects built with the new LEGO® EV3! You can even build a Rubik’s Cube Solver! Note: Participants do not take LEGO® projects home.
*Supervised lunch from 11:30-12pm for those participants registered for both Video Game Designer & LEGO® Camp
Boys Ultimate Lacrosse Camp (6–16 years old)
Our goal is to bring together boys from the Seacoast area and through our passion for the game teach them the skills and values of lacrosse. As much as we will be keeping the majority of our emphasis on lacrosse, we will also make sure that every camper is having a good time. The reason why we play lacrosse is to have fun! The Ultimate Lacrosse program selects premier players from every position to provide the camp with a well-rounded and dynamic coaching staff. Councilors will be comprised from both current and former players representing Division I, II and III. These coaches are selected not only based on their ability to perform on the field but their etiquette, devotion, lax IQ and desire to spread their passion for the game with the younger players. Full gear recommended and players to bring their own equipment. If you are in need of equipment please contact Wayne Demers at
