Young Hacks Academy- Beta Masters



(Entering grades 5-7)

Does your child have what it takes to lead in the 21st century? Young Hacks Academy is a summer camp that uses technology to develop real-world leadership skills. Blending computer programming, problem-solving, and teamwork, YHA teaches kids to build cool video games about big challenges facing the world today, such as climate change, homelessness, and endangered wildlife. As serious as we are about exploring technology, YHA is also committed to having fun away from the screen, moving campers outside each day for unplugged games like treasure hunts and riddle relays. No programming experience is required. For more information, visit younghacks.com.

Emphasizing the power of collaboration, YHA Beta Masters leverages a real-world production cycle for planning and developing innovative game prototypes just like the pros. With a passion for social entrepreneurship, Beta Masters work in teams to develop video game concepts with a real-world focus and take them from ideation to completion. Campers will push their computational learning to the next level, creating original graphics and bringing them to life with a robust, cloud-based game engine, all with one goal in mind: securing seed investments from friends and family at Friday's beta release party!
