Escape Room Camp

Building Creativity and Cooperation Through Game Design

Since 2021, North Carolina’s only Escape Room Camp has provided Triangle-area kids the opportunity to learn game design while they explore, create, and build an escape room-style game! Each day, kids play games–from traditional board and card games to the virtual landscapes of Roblox–to understand the fundamentals of game design. They then apply their knowledge and use their creativity to make their own games. Along the ways, kids learn to be strategic, cooperative, and responsible.

Our camp curriculum is rooted in research and the principles of engineering design to spark your child’s passion for STEM. With only 12 campers per week, every child receives personal attention and hands-on instruction. Leading the camp are the co-owners and game designers of Conundrum Escapes: Christy, an education professor, and Steven, a seasoned gamer. Under their guidance, your child will discover the exciting process of conceptualizing, building, and refining their unique ideas while getting a behind-the-scenes look at our escape room games.

This summer, we’re proud to offer a special week just for girls. While girls are welcome every week, we’ve dedicated this time to ensure a comfortable and empowering space to encourage more girls to explore the world of game design.

All project materials are included in the price, and campers will take home their portable escape room and any projects created during the week. We also offer a 10% discount for siblings and for campers registering for more than one week.

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience our camp, regardless of their financial situation. That’s why we offer scholarships of up to 100% of camp tuition for eligible families. Please complete this form if you are interested.

Payments and Cancellation

We require a 50% deposit upon registration, with the balance due on the first day of camp. Cancellations must be made in writing at least two weeks before the camp start date to receive a full refund. Cancellations made within two weeks of the program start date are eligible for a 100% credit toward any Conundrum Escapes offerings.
