Our Impact

5 years ago, we embarked on a journey to bring the magic of game making to girls everywhere. We’re nowhere near done, but the last 5 years have been an incredible period of growth supported by the video games industry and GMG’s community — you!

Our Partners

It takes a village to raise a child, or a company..and it certainly has taken nearly all of the video games industry to help our program grow from one summer camp to the movement it is today. We’re deeply grateful for their support and love, and can’t wait to build the future of the industry together.
