Questions / FAQ

In our ever evolving digital landscape, it’s understandable to possibly question the benefits of gaming and esports. Luckily for you and your child, we at Immortals Gaming Camps are not promoting self-isolated, hours on end, unsocial gaming.

We believe it is our responsibility to educate kids and parents alike on the realities of team esports. Games like Overwatch and League of Legends are not single player. They require working together in teams of 5 or 6 with offensive and defensive roles. Our professional Overwatch and League of Legends athletes do not sit in their rooms practicing alone. They wake up everyday, hit the gym, eat a nutritious breakfast, train with their coaching staff, watch gameplay footage, work on team building communication exercises, etc.

The esports world is looking more and more like traditional sports you know everyday. Outside of the professional scene, the gaming industry is taking hold in every typical realm of your kid’s life. Thousands of high schools across the country are starting esports and gaming clubs. There are over 80 universities offering scholarships totaling $9 million + for spots on their esports teams, USC, UCI and Cornell – to name a few.

Beyond college, gaming accounts for over 9 billion dollars in industry revenue and more than 300,000 jobs in the US alone.

Camps will run through our Immortals Gaming Camps Discord. Discord is used by gamers to communicate during tournaments and matches. Don’t have discord? Set one up here. About a week before camp, you will receive an email to join our Immortals Gaming Camps Discord.
