‘Computer camp’ nowadays

It has changed over the years. Now there's CampGame, where Arizona high school students spend six weeks learning videogame design at Arizona State University's school of engineering. Besides design, they also learn "the fundamentals of the game industry" and how to "develop concepts and prototypes for new games," East Valley Living reports. "CampGame is a part of the engineering school’s support of a national education effort to interest young students in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics." Then there’s ID Tech Camp at Stanford University, where kids and teens learn just about anything their little hearts desire, from programming, 3D character modeling for special effects, digital video production, game mods, robotics, as well as videogame design, CNET reports.
