Digital Encampment June Map and Update

Our camps are built on the GatherTown platform, an interactive virtual space that simulates in-person interactions. With an 8-bit pixelized video game aesthetic and familiar online video and chat features, Gather Town allows users to move through online spaces using their arrow keys for keyboard controls. Our Digital Encampment uses an open system design aesthetic where participants with design permissions can add and remove elements to the camp. It now includes original assets and an exciting curation of elements.
