"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"
"My biggest takeaway was understanding the work that truly goes into being an esports athlete. I am happy I got to hear those challenges that might arise in the future so we can make better decisions now."
We are launching camps with some of the best venues, teams, coaches and events around North America. As new dates and locations become available, you will be the first to know.
