Emagination also offers Emagination Game Design Academy, an immersive two-week STEM programs where teens 15 – 18 learn the game design and development process as it’s practiced in the industry today.

Emagination’s Illinois camp is located at Lake Forest College.  30 miles outside of Chicago on the North Shore, Lake Forest College is situated on 107 park-like acres and is an idyllic location for a summer tech camp.  With an advanced instructional facility and newly renovated dorms, campers also have easy access to playing fields, pool and gymnasium.  Day camp participants come from nearby towns including Deerfield, Elmhurst, Highland Park, Northbrook and Libertyville.
