Players looking to hone their competitive gaming skills will walk away with several tactics and tools to achieve their goals. Those looking for a more casual gaming and STEM experience will have a blast playing in group games and tournaments with new friends.

“Our camps are a perfect way to try out esports without committing to a league. We will divide campers according to their age level and game interest and work with them to teach them new gaming skills and play together as a team. We also plan to give them a taste of coding and have some fun STEM team-building activities. Most of all, we want them to have a great time and walk away with new friends they can game with online and in person.”

-Drew Walton, DEL Esports Director,

Campers will also get to use DEL’s pro-gaming PC’s and peripherals, get a camp t-shirt, and have a chance at fun prizes. The camp costs $249 per camper, but the Dubuque Esports League is offering scholarships based on financial need. To register and learn more, visit their website.

Dubuque Esports League is a charitable organization whose mission is to provide opportunities for EVERYONE to use esports as a platform to develop STEM-based skills, grow in their social-emotional attributes and characteristics, discover career pathways, and enhance skills needed to thrive in work and life.

This Iowa Home Has a Video Game Store INSIDE!

This house is nice enough without the video game store in the basement... but that video game store is pretty awesome, too.
