The New Meta Academy offers this unique In-person bootcamp for young gamers between the ages of 6 and 16 to improve their skills and learn important life lessons through Esports. Our Bootcamps are inspired by our long-running Esports Academy, where our Certified Coaches guide children to develop core skills in competitive gaming while fostering Critical ThinkingProblem-Solving, and Teamwork abilities.

Each Day is split into 3 parts:

(1) Acquire and Practice Fundamental Skills

(2) Split into Teams, Compete and Practice Teamwork and Tactics

(3) Analyse Gameplay, Discuss Strategy and Learn about Esports

The Fortnite Bootcamp is an exciting way to nurture a Healthy Passion for Gaming, encourage the forging of unforgettable Friendships, and ultimately a way to challenge players to push their skills to the limits.
