Empowering Creators Through
The Game Experience is about discovery, personal growth, and creating new friendships that
endure the test of time. We have carefully engineered our camp to
realize these goals through our values: culture, creation, and connection.
Our culture is all about giving students the freedom to be themselves. With students from over a dozen countries attending our camps, we foster a truly inclusive environment. No matter where our students are from, we never want to restrict their ability to express who they are. We always strive to maintain a low power distance between our team and our students in order to establish a respectful, open, and honest culture. We wholeheartedly believe that when you feel safe being yourself, you’re in a better space to embrace new knowledge and experiences.
How our students feel when they come on our programs is paramount to us.
Our programs are built around taking skills learned in the classroom and applying that knowledge to solve everyday challenges. We’re big believers in team-based, hands-on learning, as it prepares young people for an evolving society where creativity and emotional intelligence are highly sought after. Our projects are structured to simulate a team-based professional process so students can discover whether the given industry is right for them, and what role suits them best. Our goal is to create an experience that will leave a lasting impact after the end of these special two weeks.
Our motto: Always Be Creating
There are a lot of special elements that come together to make the Game Experience, and we want students to connect with all of them through their own personal lens. We design our camps so that students can develop meaningful connections with new friends, our team, and the culture in the surrounding city. Because our programs are located in knowledge hubs, students also connect with the professionals who are already making their mark in the industry.
Make connections, expand yourself.
"This program was one of the best experiences of my life. I learned so much and met so many awesome new people. The Administrators and teachers were all amazing and I would recommend this program to anyone."
"This program was so much more than I expected. Not only did I learn a lot about the gaming industry, but I also got to see a big part of Seattle and all it has to offer. The entire experience was amazing."
"Beside the amazing tours of game companies, the awesome instructors and guest speakers, I loved the whole 'experience.' The people were great, the activities were amazing, and the whole time we were very well fed."
"This was the best camp I have ever been to, and probably the best I will ever go to. Everything about it was beyond my expectations. The only downside is that I wish it would be longer because it was so awesome that the time flew by too quickly."
