No experience needed! Think Minecraft is just a video game? Think again. Create, explore, and put your problem-solving skills to the test. Let’s pretend you’re alone in a mysterious new world, full of hidden dangers. You have only minutes to find food and shelter before darkness falls and the monsters come looking for you. What do you do? What we teach you might just save your life! Learn how to find resources; make a shelter; craft tools, armor, and weapons, and protect yourself from monsters. Campers also create their own adventure map as design, production, and test playing guide them. Campers learn how to work as a team as they take on the real-world jobs of programmer, game designer, artist, and architect. There are two modes of the game. The scenario above describes the survival mode. There is also a creative mode where there are no monsters and you will be able to fly around and have unlimited resources to build amazing creations and buildings. What kind of adventure you choose will be up to you! NO Minecraft account is needed for THIS CAMP as we have licenses ready for use. Just come and learn the basics, as well as advanced techniques and new strategies of this great game!

Minecraft™ 3D Supreme – Ages 8-14
Cost: $305/5 day camp    Date: December 19-23  AND  December 26-30

This camp is for beginners (ages 9+) AND veteran campers (8+) who have been playing Minecraft. We will group kids according to level. Minecraft™ has taken the world by storm with its block-building, digital game design that allows players to build, explore, create, collaborate, and even survive. With no set rules, you can build anything you can possibly imagine. During this 5-day adventure, campers will learn different modes of playing. They will use cool mods as they escape monsters, build amazing structures, create maps, mine the world under their feet, climb the tallest mountains, and utilize robotic “turtles” to manipulate the vast world around them. They will learn real coding techniques to program their turtles to accomplish tasks while working as a team with other campers to unleash their creativity! Campers take on the real-world jobs of programmer, game designer, artist, and architect. Creativity and problem solving…oh yeah!

NO Minecraft account is needed for THIS CAMP as we have licenses ready for use. Just come and learn the basics, as well as advanced techniques and new strategies of this great game! However, to play at home, you will need a Minecraft account. To purchase a standard account and desktop version of Minecraft™ ($26.95):  minecraft.net/store.

Creating Minecraft™ MODS – Ages 10-14
Cost: $305/5 day camp    Date: December 26-30

NOT for beginners! Gamers need experience with Minecraft, know how to save programs on a flash drive, are able to use the keyboard on a computer, and eager to learn coding.

In this fun and challenging camp, you will learn to create Minecraft Mods that you can add to your own Minecraft account at the end of the week! Did you know that Minecraft™ was built using Java™ code? During the week, you will learn programming skills and create custom code with Java™ as you explore variables, functions and other concepts. Take your problem-solving skills to the next level as you explore the dynamic world of Minecraft modding, build and customize fantastic worlds, craft recipes, add tools and blocks for your character, and learn new strategies to assist your survival and creativity.

PARENTS...Please remind your child that computer programming requires patience, trial and error experimentation, and a positive attitude to learning coding! Bring a flash drive the last day of camp.

All campers ARE REQUIRED to have a Minecraft™ account for this class. Purchase a standard account and desktop version of Minecraft™ ($26.95) at minecraft.net/store. Campers MUST bring their LOGIN credentials to camp in order to launch their Minecraft account.
