What equipment will my scholar need to participate?
Your scholar will need the following equipment to participate:
Laptop or desktop computer (gaming laptop is NOT required)

A creative mind
When and how long is each day of instruction?
Each career pathway will feature three days of virtual instruction/mentoring/coaching by eSports professionals using our active learning and project-based curricula. Your selected pathway will either meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, or on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
How much are camp fees? How can they be paid?
Camp fees are $900 per scholar. Camp fees can be paid up front, in thirds (or every two weeks), or weekly. A minimum $200.00 deposit per scholar is required to hold your scholar's virtual seat. This camp is not a weekly drop-in camp. Due to the camp being project-based each week builds on the previous week. As such, even if you are paying weekly, it is expected that the entire $900 per scholar will be remitted.
How will campers be grouped?
Within each eSports career pathway, scholars will be grouped according to their grade (as of August 2020): Kindergarten - 5th grade, 6the grade - 8th grade, and 9th grade - 12th grade.
