Camp Localhost: Presented by Butler Esports
Powered by Nerd Street Gamers
Camp Localhost is partnering with Butler University to host week-long esports afterschool bootcamps this winter. Bootcamps are for players ages 10-18 who are interested in Fortnite, Rocket League, and Overwatch are who are interested in playing esports in college. These bootcamps are run through Discord and campers may play on any console (PS4, Xbox, PC, Switch, Mobile) that their game permits - specific details below!
