At Mercer, Emagination will operate its Computer Camp program for children ages 8 - 17 as well as its Emagination Game Design for teens ages 15 – 18 and Programming camps for teens ages 13 – 17.
Emagination’s Computer Camp program blends technology learning with fun summer camp activities to create a well-rounded summer camp experience.

The computer camp offers more than 25 technology workshops including Virtual Reality, 3D Animation, Web Design, Video Game Design, Coding, Minecraft, Robotics, CAD, and more.
Campers come for two-week sessions as day or overnight campers. They choose three technology workshops plus a recreation activity. A Talent Show, a day of games on Saturday and an evening program of recreation and technology help create a well-rounded summer camp experience.
Emagination Game Design is an immersive STEM program for teens ages 15 – 18 who have an interest in learning how video games are designed and developed.
Teens learn key technical and creative components of video game design, including level design and function, the creation of 3D characters, lighting, sound effects, and programming. Working in teams, they build a playable video game that is presented to a panel of industry experts on the last day of camp. The program also includes a tour of a professional game design studio and guest speakers who come to campus.
Emagination Programming Camp is a STEM program for teens ages 13 – 17 who have an interest in learning to code in C#, the most popular programming language for creating Windows applications.
In this two-week program, campers will learn the basics of programming in C# and how it is used by today’s developers to bring seamless integration into desktop and web applications. The program is balanced with plenty of time for traditional camp activities including sports and swimming.
