We have a new look, are now officially a 501c3 charity, are offering a whole bunch of new game coding classes, and several new locations! Our class sizes are still limited so make sure to signup soon especially for some of the really unique advanced classes before they sell out.

As in past summers, kids 8-16 will get to team up with other kids to build their own videogame and learn valuable coding skills with the help of our industry game developer instructors. Signups have started for all our camps, including 1-week intro classes starting June 5th and 1-week Genre and Skill Intensives courses starting June 19th.

Our Nonprofit Mission

DreamQuest Academy is a nonprofit school whose sole purpose is to inspire future engineers in our community through creative play. Our unique programs encourage kids away from the often isolated act of playing videogames by offering a fun and educational alternative through the collaborative social process of designing and coding a videogame as a team.

Our goal is to expose all kids to coding – which often means making an extra effort to attract girls, minorities, and low income kids who might otherwise not gain competency in STEM skills, confidence in the use of technology, or  even consider a future career in engineering.
