This camp, held in Western Michigan University’s state-of-the-art Esports Arena, will be led by an esports performance coach and WMU’s very own Esports Arena team. Participants will learn about objective discipline, growth mindset, execution, teamwork and communication, qualities that build on each other and can be used both in everyday life and to become an esports professional of tomorrow. On the last day, participants will get the full event experience, just like a WMU Esports team member.
