Games Featured: Fortnite
We are pleased to announce our Junior Esports Performance Camp: Featuring Fortnite. Immerse yourself with top level instruction at this week long digital camp. With curriculum designed for beginners to advanced players, the Fortnite camp staff focuses on esports performance with an emphasis on nutrition, teamwork, communication, & sleep.
During the junior esports performance camp, gamers compete in a comprehensive camp experience: featuring daily scrim, informative breakout sessions and talks given by recognized guest speakers about strength training, goal setting, nutrition and more. Campers participate in drills and exercises focused on athlete bonding in specific groups.
Our goal is to provide you with the necessary tools to help you improve and succeed physically and mentally, in and out the game. Increase game sense and performance through lessons, practice, play, and personalized gameplay analysis. Work on improving mechanical skill – your building speed and repertoire, aim, and strategic planning – starting out in the best areas, farming resources optimally, learning when to engage or run, pathing, and awareness. Campers train and improve through fundamental instruction, game situations, and specific conditioning. There’s a lot to learn when working together as squads – there’s distributing resources, coordination, callouts, and strategies.
Camp is offered through Discord video call and will only be available for those who register. Campers work directly with Coach Dody on all tips, tricks, scrims, and plugs.
Camp will offer physical exercises & techniques you can use to keep your body in peak performance.

What Campers Say:
"I really liked the digital camp experience I learned a lot of new exercises from Coach Dody and I learned a lot about the game while in the camp. I learned a lot more about water-falling and side jumps while at camp and improved in multiple aspects of my game play." - Emmet W (Camper)
"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."
