The first-of-its-kind League of Legends (LoL) EXP Summer Camp held in Singapore from 27 – 29 June 2019 at *SCAPE. Organised by *SCAPE, this specially curated 3D2N camp is part of *SCAPEesports’ Exposure & Xperience Programme 2019 (EXP2019). Featuring attendees between the age of 13 – 25, the attendees left the camp with freshly acquired esports industry knowledge and new friendships.
Esports camps usually focus primarily on gameplay. However, EXP2019 Summer Camp was designed to engage like-minded individuals through esports insights learning, gaming-relating challenges with outdoor activities to help attendees forge friendships with their teammates. Along the way, they acquire lifelong skills and achieve clarity about their potential in esports.
While most of the activities were held at *SCAPE, a highlight of the EXP2019 Summer Camp is an Amazing Race challenge at Sentosa on the second day where teams raced against the clock to score points at team challenges at 14 locations. There was also a character-building experience at Focus Adventure in Sentosa where attendees were required to work closely with their team mates to conquer a 24 metres high challenge tower.
Professional gamers from Resurgence were also on hand at the camp to act as mentor and coaches to the camp attendees. Resurgence Team Owner Jayf Soh, Gamestart executive Reuben Sim, Sin esports founder Darell Sin also provided inspiring and insightful talks on the gaming industry and esport ecosystem on the first and second days of the camp.
Another key highlight for the attendees was to listen to the professionals in Resurgence like Samuel Chan who talked about topics like toxicity and tilt management in esports.
In addition to summer camps, EXP2019 is offering 40 workshops from July to December 2019 which cover subjects ranging from in-game skills and tactics, cyber-wellness, content creation, streaming, commentary work and much more.
