Susquehanna Esports to foster fitness, team building at Philadelphia summer campsMay 8, 2019
PHILADELPHIA – Susquehanna Esports, an esports organization dedicated to bringing professional esports teams to the Mid-Atlantic region, will help incorporate physical well-being, leadership, and teamwork activities into a new Philadelphia esports camp this summer.
The Harrisburg-based esports group has partnered with N3rd Street Gamers to engage participants in a range of activities at the camps that will take place at N3rd Street Gamers’ Localhost esports arena at 908 N. Third St. in Philadelphia beginning June 17.
The mission of the esports summer camps is to promote camaraderie by inviting participants to engage face-to-face with each other. Being in the same physical location encourages communication and provides a safe environment for attendees to learn, communicate, and meet like-minded people.
Susquehanna Esports, whose goal is to support the region’s growing esports community with live events, skill training, and top-quality gameplay, has developed content for camp.
"If you listen to a group of 14-year-olds coordinate and plan in Fortnite, you realize that esports is more than entertainment--it's how today’s kids communicate, build relationships and learn problem-solving," says Charles Palmer of Susquehanna Esports. "Learning in esports is very similar to learning in traditional sports."
Each camp will employ a professional coach tasked with leading attendees in skills, strategy and creativity training. Coaches will also instruct players on the importance of posture, sleep, and communication as they participate in esports.
One goal of the summer camp is to use exercises, both physical and nonphysical, to teach life skills to attendees. The activities are designed to ensure the participants become better players and position them as better candidates for college scholarships and career professionals.
Susquehanna Esports stresses the importance of increasing diversity in esports and gaming by creating a healthy, safe, and welcoming environment. Camp directors will leverage the popular battle royale game, Fortnite, to teach communication, perseverance, and leadership skills to participants.
The Esports Summer Camp, title “Battle Royale Academy”, is a five-day (9am – 4pm) camp scheduled for the third and fourth weeks of June and the first week of July. Program details can be found at http://SONIQS.gg/Academy.
Registration is open now. So join us for an amazing summer.
