1. Can I take the Video Games I make home?
Yes: At the end of the session you will take home copies of any games or other digital projects on a CD or flash key. You will be able to run your games on your home computer if you have a recent version of windows installed.
2. Can I take the robot I made home?
Robots: You will have a chance to build one or more robots using Lego Mindstorms and Mindstorms NXT robotic building materials. These robots you will NOT be able to take home.
But we do encourage you to take lots of pictures and videos of your robot(s) and these you take home on the CD or flash key you receive at the end of the week!
3. Am I too old for camp?
Camper Age Range: We now offer teen camps and leadership camps for teens.
Volunteer: Depending on your skills and interests, you may be able to come to camp as a Volunteer. Volunteers are required to be at least 15 years old and must obtain a satisfactory criminal record check.
4. I just want to make video games. Do I have to go outdoors too?
Outdoor and Other Activities: We do schedule breaks between learning sessions. We schedule mini tournaments, indoor and outdoor games and activities through the day.
Options: If there is a particular activity you do not want to do, we are flexible. We will try and find some alternative. However we do enforce break time!
5. Will there be other girls there?
Number of Girls: Many of our programs do attract a greater number of boys than girls. Generally girls represent about 30% of our campers. We are seeing more and more girls in our camps each year. In fact we have had some programs with more girls than boys!
6. Will I get to take home the clay things I make? Or the felted creatures?
Creations: Yes, the clay and felted things you create at camp are yours to take home! And if you make an animated movie or two, you will also get to take home your movie(s) on a CD or flash key.
7. I want to come all summer, will I get to do different things each week or will a lot of it be the same each week?
Multiple Weeks of Camp: Our sessions are designed so that each week is different. And as your abilities progress you will get a chance to do more advanced challenges.
