About

Camp Fangamer is moving to... Fangamer! We love Kickstarter, but running the campaign made us realize we want to hold another Camp Fangamer whether it funded or not. So we're moving! If you'd like to buy your tickets for Camp Fangamer 2016—happening as scheduled, from July 29-31 in Tucson, Arizona—click on the image below. 

Last year, the inaugural Camp Videogamely convention, held in Tucson, Arizona, provided 400 campers with a once-in-a-lifetime event that harnessed Gamer creativity while combining live gameplay, concerts and special events, and a high-intensity entrepreneurial environment to enhance team-building, innovation, and disruption.  



Now it's back: And this time, it's better than ever! All your favorite Camp Videogamely events are back: We've got console rooms, tournaments, special guests, live shows and concerts, and more! Plus you'll get the final dead-tree issue of Videogamely Magazine in your "Swag" Bag!

Many of you told us that, as great as last year's Camp Videogamely was, you felt a certain... professional touch was required. That's why this year, Kevin Scott and the Videogamely team have taken a more proactive role.

In the '80s, Videogamely magazine was the go-to source for gamers looking to hear about the latest games, the hottest consoles, and more!

After years of involvement in the Gamer community—not to mention a major angel-investment in the inaugural Camp experience, in June 2015—Kevin Scott, a longtime Gamer and entrepreneur in the temporal holiday sector, purchased the Videogamely Name and Intellectual Property to shift the paradigm in Gamer coverage and advertising.

With the Scott "Knack," and Videogamely's Name and Intellectual Property, this is sure to be the most efficient Camp Videogamely ever! Domain experts in every field will be on hand to make sure it's the kind of camp Gamers love.

Inspired by our CEO's experience in the time-based fun-contractor industry, this year's Camp Videogamely will give all Gamers the chance to build their own business and world with trade, cardboard building implements, and our very own special currency!   

For more information, check out our Rules below!

Make a short film with your friends during Camp Videogamely, using whatever gear and locations you have at hand—you can even use a smartphone! For bonus points, connect it to the Camp Videogamely universe! On Sunday, we'll be screening your films in the ballroom!

Runtime cannot exceed five minutes. For official rules and regulations, see below.

For an example, check out this video, filmed entirely at the first Camp Videogamely!

This year, we'll be streaming every panel during the convention, to maximize learning opportunities offline—and on! If you'd like to submit a panel or a meet-up for consideration at this year's Camp Videogamely, fill out our form by June 1!

TRADE RULES & REGULATIONS
At Camp Videogamely, you'll have the opportunity to trade goods and services with other attendees. You might find a cool thing, make a new friend, or build a business empire! Come to Camp Videogamely equipped with interesting things, and make the most of an ephemeral trade economy

Trading, of course, is not mandatory. Videogamely and its subcontracting organizations are not responsible for your trades. Use discretion. No stealing. Keep it peaceful.

No trading: Alcohol, drugs, weaponsliving things, or anything that would make your grandmother blush.

MOVIE-MAKING RULES & REGULATIONS
At Camp Videogamely you'll have the opportunity to make a movie with friends! You'll need to provide your own equipment. Editing is not necessary. Runtime cannot exceed 5 minutes. Movies screening on Sunday are subject to change by the event organizers.

Planning your movie beforehand is OK, but recording (and editing, if applicable) must take place at Camp Videogamely on Fri (7/29) and/or Sat (7/30).

Completed movies must be submitted in person on Sat (7/30) in the Creative Suite. Accepted file types: .mov, .avi, .mp4

No illegal activity, nudity, or offensive language. Keep it family friendly.

Risks and challenges

We've secured the venue for the weekend, but all special guests and events are subject to last-minute changes and adjustments. We'll provide regular updates in the run-up to the convention.

Nothing bad or strange happened at the last Camp Videogamely, except for some disturbances connected with a particularly unprofessional local merchandise outfit, which has been replaced. We anticipate an equally smooth experience in 2016.
