Game Design Camp 2009 was a Huge Success!

Thirteen teens, ages 11 to 15, attended the Game Design Camp and they were a wonderful group!

When asked to voice their favorite and least favorite things about the camp, here is what they had to say:


  • Everything!  This was the “funn-est” camp I’ve ever been to
  • Everyone and everything
  • The SNACKS!
  • Yoo-hoos and Pizza
  • Software was easy to follow
  • FREE STUFF! (flash drives, cool book and software)
  • Learned fundamentals relevant to modern gaming (we promise this is a quote)
  • The instructor, Darryl
  • The instructor’s goofy analogies


  • Wish it had lasted two weeks instead of one
  • Would like to go deeper into the content
  • Not enough pizza!  (Guess we forgot how much Pizza is loved!)

All the students are interested in coming back next summer.  We even had requests for some advanced Game Design Classes — Animation/3-D simulation.

CCE wants to thank our staff for their hard work in making this class a success; Darryl, Jenny, Kris, and Tami.  Stay tuned for future plans and schedules.  Visit www.sccsc.edu/cce for a full list of our class offerings.
