Learn How to Design a Video Game at NYFA
The most successful game designers are avid players themselves, excelling in creativity, artistic expression, and play. In NYFA’s video game design camps for teens, students aged 14-17 learn these essential skills and start their journey to become tomorrow’s developers. From day one at NYFA, students are immersed in the study and practice of games, and learn what makes great games. During the camp, students use this knowledge to lay the groundwork to create a video game of their own.
NYFA’s game design camps also teach students systems thinking, which helps establish an understanding of how systems impact and work with one another, often within a larger system. Systems thinking is also the foundation for understanding subjects including science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). NYFA currently offers in-person, on-campus summer camps and weekend camps. We also offer online programs on a seasonal basis.
