App Design

Kids build their own mobile app! In this camp from Youth Digital, kids learn foundational mobile app development skills as they design and program their own mobile game.

During camp, kids will complete a mobile game from start to finish, including choosing characters, level design, and programming the app’s functionality! Kids learn the same app design concepts the pros use, including if-then statements, variables, debugging and troubleshooting to make their own mobile app! They learn industry standard skills including level design to make it look great, and the importance of user experience to make sure their game is playable, and gameplay mechanics to make their game is exciting and challenging.

At the end of camp, kids will be able to download and play their finished app on their Android or iOS device! They’ll also be able to access the online version of the course after camp, including video tutorials, interactive quizzes, and new challenges so they can keep using their new skills!

This camp will have the opportunity to swim on Friday if weather and time permits.
