It’s no surprise that the kids in Stranger Things spend a lot of time in the Arcade in Hawkins. It’s even where they meet one of their new best friends, Max; she might be the best video game player the town has ever seen! In this camp, attendees will be told that Hawkins is putting in a new arcade, and they will get to be the ones to design the games to fill it. First they need to learn how: students will put a “Stranger” twist on the games, design their sprites after characters and creatures from the show, and do so through in-world inspired storylines. In the end, they will have a game based on the show that possibly even Mad Max can’t beat. This camp is designed for students 12-17 years of age. The parent, legal guardian, or authorized adult caregiver of every participant under 17 years of age must sign a Participation Agreement upon arrival and remain in Microsoft Store for the duration of the event. Register online.
