Advanced Esports Summer Camp

Posted by Tammy Boneburg for Esports

Esports SUMMER camp IS HERE

The WMU Esports Summer camps are an introductory series to competitive Esports. Each camp will consist of 5 days going over topics conducive to the skills needed to excel as an Esports competitor such as communication, teamwork, discipline, and personal development. The WMU Esports Summer Camps is split into two programs aimed toward camper skill levels. The Advanced level camp is a more rigorous curriculum focused on preparing high school participants for collegiate-level competition. The Advanced camp is open to all high school students, but if you have a middle schooler interested in taking the advanced camp, they can be permitted upon review of the camp staff.  Note: Any student who has graduated high school or no longer attends high school is not permitted for this camp. The last day of the camp will be a show match between the campers to exhibit all the lessons learned during the week where we encourage family and friends to attend.

Due to various dietary restrictions, meals will not be provided. During lunch breaks, we are asking campers to provide their own meals. There will be a place to store any food that needs refrigeration.
