Participants will log into a personalized Atari Club page and gain access to a Camp portal modeled after an Atari ST desktop that is hosted by an AI camp director. Programming will take place in Discord, social media, and several immersive partner platforms.

A mix of virtual and IRL (in-real-life) activities will be revealed over the 8-week camp, including high-score competitions, scavenger hunts, creative projects, trivia and special apparel and accessory drops.

“The community response to last year’s Atari Summer Camp inspired us to create a more robust experience this year,” said Tyler Drewitz, Director of Atari Club. “Summer Camp is a great way to celebrate Atari’s unique history with our community.”

The Atari Summer Camp is inspired by the Atari-operated computer camps for aspiring programmers that ran in the 1980s. The camps blended a comprehensive computer education and programming curriculum with a more traditional camp experience including social activities, sports, swimming, music and arts.

“We are excited to have so many partners participating in Atari Summer Camp this year,” said Wade Rosen, Chairman and CEO of Atari. “Summer Camp is a fun way for our growing family of brands and our partners to engage with fans.”
