SAN RAFAEL, California (March 1, 2022): US Sports Camps is thrilled to partner with Camp Localhost, a gaming and esports camp powered by Nerd Street Gamers. With two programs for ages 9 to 13 and 14 to 17, Camp Localhost will blend on-screen gaming with physical activity for a healthy, educational introduction to the world of esports.
The week-long day camps will be held in nine states, including California, Colorado, Missouri, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas. In addition to working with Localhost’s professional camp staff, campers will hear from visiting esports and gaming experts. They’ll also work on critical life skills like teamwork, leadership and collaboration.
“I love seeing Localhost expand their reach because these passionate leaders can impact more young gamers,” says Charlie Freund, Partnership Director for Youth Enrichment Brands at US Sports Camps. “Camp has always been a space for growth, a frontier of new social experiences and a place of independence. Our shared goal is growing the gaming community with positive players.”
