Kids love playing board games but what if you could design an educational program around them? That’s the impetus behind the afterschool and summer enrichment programs at Hex & Company. Kids start by learning a new game and strategy next they revisit the original strategy and develop novel problem-solving skills.

MORNINGS 9AM -12NOON All campers begin with Creative Game Design, where they explore game mechanics, create original games, and develop game materials.

Strategic approaches to game success are taught while encouraging good sportsmanship among players.
