Register Now for VR Summer Camp

 

We’re excited to announce Portal’s first VR Summer Camp session to be held at our Ballard location from Tuesday, July 9th through Friday, July 12th from 9:00am – Noon.

Ages 11-14

Cost:  $300

Portal VR Summer Camp will be part educational and part recreational.  Campers will learn the high-level, basics of VR game creation and will contribute to the production of a simple game using 3D models they have built in VR.  At the end of the session they’ll get a chance to test out the assembled game and take a copy home.  They’ll also, of course, be playing a lot of VR games, including an organized scavenger hunt and tournament!

 

Please note that this is NOT a coding camp; This is a fun introduction to all things VR. While we will teach the concepts involved in game design and give overviews of the tools and processes used, there will be no hand’s-on programming.  Rather, kids will spend their time in VR creating 3D objects that will be integrated into a game developed by staff.
