Fleming Tech Camps engages your child’s creativity and problem solving skills, and builds technology skills that will last a lifetime. Check out our schedule below to review all of the camps that we will be hosting with The Tatnall School this summer:
Minecraft: Adventure Design
Using Minecraft, the world’s most popular video game, campers will learn how to design 3D video game adventures. This camp focuses primarily on game design, installing mods and using Redstone to create adventure maps. Advanced campers may also work on setting up and managing local Minecraft servers. This camp does not require software coding. The day includes lectures/labs, recreation and swimming and time for playing Smash Bros. and Minecraft!
Video Game Design
For two full weeks, campers will learn the ins and outs of how video games are made. Video Game Design camp focuses on game design and graphic arts using Adobe Flash and Adobe Photoshop. At the end of the program, campers will bring home their very own 2D platform games that can be played on any computer.
We will provide introduction, intermediate and advanced instruction so campers with prior experience, or who have attended this camp in the past, can jump right in and start making games.
This camp is designed for motivated campers with 60 percent of the day spent in a classroom (does not require software coding). The day includes lectures/labs, recreation and swimming and time for playing Smash Bros. and Minecraft!
Movie Making - Super Camp
Campers will get the chance to make their own short movie or preview. Each Movie Maker camper will become the Director, Producer, Screenwriter, Actor, and Editor of their very own creation with the help of fellow campers. Each student will come up with a short movie idea or movie preview idea that will be three to ten minutes in length and then go into actually writing, directing, filming, and editing their short. They will learn about what it takes to become a filmmaker, how to write a properly formatted screenplay, and have the enjoyment of working together to create their short movie masterpiece. At the end of the program they will go home with the knowledge of what it takes to work in film and will have completed their movie or preview and rendered it in full High Definition format to be viewed on any HD television, computer, or tablet.
