There are all sorts of camps for kids. There are band camps and scout camps, writing camps and sports camps, boot camps and religious camps. But up until recently, I had no idea there were game camps.
It’s a niche that Vivian Hua, the owner of All Fun and Games, realized after one of her friends mentioned that his kids needed a place to be during their breaks from school. Vivian owns the gaming store, based in Apex, NC, and with its impressive game library and 1,400 square feet of space, she thought she’d give the idea a try.
“Friends of mine have children in the All Year Round schools and they love to play games. He asked if it would be possible to run a camp to teach games and learn gaming etiquette,” she explains. “Teaching proper etiquette of turning taking and other acceptable behavior while playing games. Showing that all games are fun and educational, that no matter what kind of game you are playing, you can always learn something from it.”
So the Game Camp was started.
