SUMMER CAMP DETAILS

Career Opportunities and Training:

The UA Esports staff will offer 2-3 classes per day to help campers learn about professions in the realm of esports, with topics ranging from broadcasting to PC building. Campers are expected to spend around two hours each day learning practical, IT-related skills.

Growth in gaming potential:

Campers will also be able to take classes from players on the Akron Esports varsity team, who will analyze campers’ gameplay and provide one-on-one assistance and coaching.

Team-based and coached gaming sessions:

Each camper will be placed on a team upon arrival. Each team will be coached by an Akron Esports varsity player, who will lead in-game and out-of-game team-building exercises, focusing on individual and cooperative success.

Communication skills:

One of the largest indicators of success in esports is the ability of a team to communicate effectively both in-game and out-of-game. Each session will therefore focus on improving communication and teamwork skills.

Physical education:

Physical health is crucial to the Akron Esports program and to success in esports. Campers will spend an hour each day exercising and participating in activities in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.

End of week live show match:

Parents and friends will be invited to watch campers play a live match at UA's InfoCision Esports Arena at the end of the week.
