BUILDING HEALTHY GAMING HABITS, COMMUNICATION, PROBLEM-SOLVING, AND SOCIAL CONFIDENCE THROUGH GAMING IN NEW JERSEY
Camp Localhost, powered by Nerd Street, takes a unique approach to gaming through in-person video game and esports camps. Our week-long summer experience offers a robust camp that allows kids who are interested in gaming to meet and engage with their peers in a fun and safe atmosphere. Our engaging and educational esports programs balance on-screen gameplay with off-screen activities to help kids think critically about gaming while participating in an active, social, and cognitive curriculum. Through a positive and supportive environment, we help young gamers build healthy gaming habits while developing their skills around teamwork, leadership, collaboration, and trust to inspire them to become the next generation of gamers.

Your VOUCHER is transferable to any family member and may be used for any program in partnership with US Sports Camps. Cash refunds will be given only with the purchase of Cancellation Protection (terms at check-out).

"Our son William absolutely loved it and gained more confidence with his gaming during this week of camp. He really enjoyed spending time with people who had the same level of interest that he has for esports. It also opened his and our eyes to what is involved in playing and/or training for esports."
"I had a super time at the Esports Camp! Lovely to meet so many people IRL, and geek out with our next generation of leaders and changers in the space."
"The gaming was great because I had people to play with and I got to try new things. Our coach(Sidney) was nice and a good coach and got along with everyone and the overnight stay part was ok"
"Apparently his coach helped him with a mistake ritual. I am so thankful as this will help the screaming decrease. Ha! He improved high ground re-takes, game sense and side jumps and I have no idea what any of that means. So thank you!"
"I really improved on my team communication skills. This was my first real competitive experience, and I think it was a lot of fun, and very valuable. I really enjoyed working as a team, and cooperating with others to reach our goal."
"My takeaway from this camp was how health and other activities play a role into video games. I also loved learning from the Cavs coach and what his daily routine is like."
"I learned how to work with my overwatch team much better than I could have without camp."
"This was awesome everybody was very nice and they helped me understand the game better"
"Rambo was very knowledgeable about things you can do outside of the game like stretches and your mindset, not just in the game. My overall gameplay became better because of that."
