We feel that this accreditation gives a sense of validity to our esports camp experiences as our curriculum focuses on developing mechanical skills in-game and soft skills, like communication, leadership, and teamwork, out-of-game.

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.
“US Sports Camps’ inherent role in the educational ecosystem (both direct & indirect) has placed it in the unique, but challenging position of leading others by example, while striving for continued improvement of its program in the ever-changing, highly competitive 21st century global economy,” said Andrew Raupp, Founder and Executive Director of STEM.org.
"We are extremely excited to be awarded the STEM.org Accreditation,” says Kye Browning, Director of Esports of US Sports Camps. “We feel that this accreditation gives a sense of validity to our esports camp experiences as our curriculum focuses on developing mechanical skills in-game and soft skills, like communication, leadership, and teamwork, out-of-game.”
