Girls Makes Games

Girls Make Games hosts international summer camps, workshops and game jams designed to inspire the next generation of designers, creators, and engineers. Camp attendees are introduced to game design, programming, art, audio/music and entrepreneurship.

The GMG flagship three week camp helps girls ages 11-14 take a creative concept and turn it into a fully functional prototype. Not only do campers have a finished product at the end of the three weeks, they also compete nationally for the top prize, a chance to have their video game developed and published by LearnDistrict, the educational company behind GMG.

Last year, “The Negatives”, from the inaugural Mountain View camp, won grand prize for their game “The Hole Story”, and raised over $31,000 to publish their game, on Kickstarter (learn more here:

Over 20 summer camps are scheduled for this summer!
