There’s an esports summer camp for kids, and yoga and nutrition are part of the package

Posted by JKCP on Jul 13, 2018 1:36:00 PM

Run by N3rd Street Gamers and Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs, the unique camp isn’t just a place for young gamers to spend two weeks glued to screens and rattling off key combos. The camp infuses training, nutrition, speakers and activities to teach esports players skills they need to find success that goes beyond kill counts and online rankings.

“Gaming is an ecosystem to teach business and life skills,” said Steve Robertson, CEO of Julian Krinsky.

Generation Z, those currently in school, have the least amount of soft skills society has ever seen, according to Robertson. However, they have learned technology faster and sooner than previous ones, which could help them work in fields that may not even exist now but will in 10 to 20 years.

Rob Hilsky runs the camps for N3rd Street Gamers. Two weeks with gamers 10–14 years old will be followed by two more with 15–18 year olds. These students are now competing for college scholarships and spots on professional teams in various esports. As home of the Philadelphia Fusion University, campers have a chance to train in a facility used by an Overwatch franchise owned by Comcast Spectacor.
