Each week of camp is different and we put a ton of care into creating a once in a lifetime experience for our campers. We feature two different types of summer camp. There is a General Esports & Coding camp for ages 10-14 and a Boot Camp for ages 15-18.

We will give an introduction to a variety of esports like Overwatch, League of Legends, Super Smash Bros, and Magic The Gathering: Arena. We will also give an introduction to the Scratch coding language. In addition to games and coding, we incorporate awesome away from the keyboard activities and engaging special guests.

Game Gym Boot Camp – Ages 15-18 – Game Gym Boot Camp is a more intense dive into higher level esports. The emphasis is on perfecting skills, strategies, and communication for those looking to take their skills to the next level. Over the course of the week, our gamers will be lead through different training sessions by our top-level coaches that cover everything from game mechanics to mental toughness.

Parents and kids love Game Gym Camps!

“Our son came home so thrilled and excited – he explained his day in detail! He loves loves loves your camp! Thanks for bringing him such joy!” – Martha

“Thank you for an amazing week of camp. The quality of speakers was the best and the adults you employ are such great role models. From fitness trainers and spray paint artists, to professional baseball players and journalists who help with public speaking, rounded out with some epic esports battles, it was a fun packed week!” – Shelley

Washington Post – Seeking fun and glory, gamers hone their skills in digital dojos

“Among the guest speakers who attended the first week of esports summer camp in Potomac, Md., were a personal trainer, a video-game-focused physical therapist and a broadcast news anchor. The next generation of professional video gamers needs good posture, limber thumbs and the confidence to handle a postgame interview.

A dozen preteens absorb it here at The Game Gym, a suburban office suite turned gamer hangout. Jerseys from professional esports teams hang on the walls. Couches are pulled around large TV screens with Xbox Ones and Nintendo Wiis underneath. In the back room, a chill den adorned with yellow Christmas lights holds 12 gaming-optimized computers with brand new gaming keyboards, mice and headsets.” Link to full article
