MILFORD, Conn. , May 29 /Businesswire/ - Affinity Esports, a leader in promoting healthier gaming experiences, is excited to announce the opening of its second Connecticut studio in Milford this July. The new location will offer a range of engaging activities, including Summer Camps, Educational Classes, Club Teams, Game Nights, and Birthday Party options. Summer Camps will anchor the season, with registrations now open through their website and the Milford Recreation Website.

Located strategically to complement their existing Newtown studio, the Milford Studio represents Affinity Esports’ continued commitment to expanding its reach and impact within the state. “The opening of our Milford studio marks a significant step in our mission to foster a safe, inclusive gaming environment that promotes socialization and education,” said Kate Petersen, Director of Operations at Affinity Esports.

The Milford community has shown strong support for this new venture.

The new studio will be fully operational in July, offering seven weeks of Summer Camps from July 1st to August 16th, alongside Friday and Saturday game nights, and birthday celebrations. Their programs are designed to promote critical life skills such as teamwork, communication, and problem solving, while also introducing participants to potential career paths within the esports industry.
