Gaming Club is a chance to engage with peers in a fun and energetic environment while fostering friendships and learning lifelong skills that will last long after the next level has been beaten. We know kids love gaming and parents constantly worry about screen time. We’re removing the guilt for parents, taking something kids love and turning it into a (Shh!) learning and growth experience!
