Third Floor Gamers Summer Camps
Welcome to Third Floor Gamers’ summer camps! We provide unique opportunities for 5th-12th grade students to experience the excitement of strategic board games! Everybody loves board games…they are a lot of fun and are a great way to make friends and overcome boredom. However, did you know that strategic board games also help develop critical thinking techniques? They can teach the players collaboration and communication skills. These games also help players see the big picture and explore ways to problem solve and break down obstacles into achievable strategies. Summer vacation is a great time to relax and take a break from the demands of school. However, we don’t want children to turn off their brains. Our game camps offer a great opportunity for students to stay mentally active, while having fun and experiencing something new. All four game camps teach the campers a variety of strategic board games, take time to get outside and play laser tag, and recognize the achievements of the participants with smoothie awards! While there are similarities, each game camp is unique, playing different games, focusing on different strategies, involving different participants, and providing the campers a different overall experience. Whether signing up for only one or registering for the full four camp experience, each camper will discover the thrill of being challenged, the vigor of competition, the spirit of camaraderie, and the joy of success. Of course, we cannot guarantee that everyone will win, but winning doesn’t equal success. We achieve success when we learn and grow, when we are better than the day before, and when we put forth our best effort in every endeavor! Availability for the camps are on a first come, first served basis, and spots will go fast. Please check your calendar and register as soon as you are able. This summer promises to be an amazing adventure! We hope you will join us for this incredible experience!

We all love summer break, but it can get so loooooooong, and by the end you’re looking for something to do. Well, Stay Sharp has the perfect solution for you and your parents. By registering for Stay Sharp, you get to spend a week playing awesome board games, running around outside with laser tag, and hanging out with friends! When your parents register you for Stay Sharp, they give you the opportunity to mentally challenge yourself and get back into the academic thinking you’ll need when school starts again. The games played at the Stay Sharp game camp offer you, not only the opportunity to have fun, but also engage your high level thinking skills, your collaboration skills, and your problem-solving skills. Let’s face it, over the summer our brains go on vacation. What better way to get them re-activated than with challenging games in a fun-filled week!
