Each camp lasts five days (Monday – Friday), and costs $350 per child.

Drop-off will be between 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. in front of the Museum of the American Railroad (6455 Page St., Frisco, TX 75034). Pickup will be from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. inside the National Videogame Museum (8004 Dallas Parkway, Ste. 300, Frisco, TX 75034).
