"During the Electronic Game Design Racing classes, students will use Multimedia Fusion 2R to create their own video game," representatives said.

The camp features a Cirque des Arts program.
"Trapeze, high wire, dancing elephants, and painting all are part of the thrill of the circus. Learn how to draw or create all these and more in a safe, nurturing environment," representatives said. "Construct your own miniature Fun House Marble Game, experiment with clay and wire sculpture, paint the canvas and just have fun creating while using artist-quality materials. No art experience is necessary. Games and snack break will be incorporate in the half day camp."
The camp also features an "Inspiration From Famous Artist" program.
"Order up sculpture, drawing, watercolor and new techniques, all inspired by famous artists. Create your own miniature canvas on an easel. Develop a design using multi-colored, translucent paper with the look of real stained glass, one of the world’s most beautiful art forms," representatives said.
