Each camper also receives a Multiple Intelligence Assessment to identify their personal learning style used by out instructors during the tutoring sessions. This information also helps campers identify their own learning styles and develop strategies for academic success.

By designing and creating their own Xbox games – that really work on the Xbox - they gain lifelong coding skills.
