Kids U Summer Camp: Make Your First Video Game! (Grades 6-10)

Make your first video game in this one-of-a-kind camp that shows you the keys to designing a 2D platformer game.

We'll explore conceptualization, play experience, level design, graphics, sounds, and simple coding. No experience is necessary, just a desire to have fun.

Your game will be available on a password-protected website to share with friends and family.

Games are only compatible on PC computers; Mac versions can be created after the camp for a $15 conversion fee.

Please note that Make Your First Video Game! is designed for students in rising grades 6-10.


Kids U summer camps at the University of Tennessee provide a wonderful opportunity for students in grades 3-12 (rising) to learn, have fun, and explore their interests in areas such as technology, art, photography, cooking, chemistry, anthropology, and much more.

Camps are offered in June and July by UT Conferences & Non-Credit Programs
