It seems like everything is changing due to COVID-19—summer plans included. For many families, summer camps for their kids will be held virtually this year, and the camps at George Mason University are no different. 

GMU’s Mason Community Arts Academy (MCAA) and Mason Game and Technology Academy (MGTA) have revamped their summer programmings and are now offering the learning experiences through digital platforms, including virtual theater, music, visual arts and film and video games through the MCAA for students ages 5 to adults. MGTA’s programming includes game design, computer programming and AI courses/machine learning.

Registration is now open for the programs, which include over 80 camp and academy options running from mid-June through August. Each class offering in the programs will include a mix of livestreamed interactive learning experiences and virtual classroom research, design and creation time.
