This camp is specially crafted for young gaming enthusiasts who want to take their gaming skills to the next level while making lasting connections with fellow gamers.

Coaching, provided by the Missouri S&T eSports team, is designed to boost students' self-confidence, leadership abilities, and problem-solving skills, both in gaming and in life.
