ESPORTS SUMMER CAMP
ESPORTS SUMMER CAMP
This camp offers a unique opportunity to take your game to the next level at Localhost Philadelphia. The goal of the summer camp is to help mold you into the best player you can be while helping you unlock your potential. With nearly $9 million dollars worth of scholarships being awarded from over 80 universities in the United States and $1 billion of prize money handed out in 2019, there is no denying that esports is a booming industry.
With that in mind, we created an immersive esports summer program designed to give participants a complete overview of the esports ecosystem. Students will have the opportunity to improve their skills on team-oriented games like Rocket League, League of Legends and Overwatch. Plus, during free play, practice your choice of games including Fortnite, Minecraft, DOTA 2, Starcraft, FIFA, Apex Legends and many more. Game training is supported by daily workshops focused on Communication, Computer Knowledge, Team Dynamics and Critical Thinking. During each session, students and instructors will choose their favorite game and train for an end of session tournament that culminates in a professional-grade, live-streamed championship match.
