Minecraft and Video Game Creation Camp

Mike Engelberg
July 7th-11th
9am - 3pm

Do you love Minecraft? Have you always wanted to learn how to code your own game? Then this is the camp for you! We will spend the week building worlds in Minecraft and building our own games in Scratch and other coding languages. In addition to this we explore the world of video games and what goes into creating games. You do not need to have any experience with Minecraft or coding, we will teach each kid to their level of expertise. If you have an existing Minecraft account this camp will allow you to keep working on your own project as well as team up with others to build some amazing things together! This camp will run from 9-3 and will feature several breaks to go in the gym and get some energy out!

We use Apple's latest computers to create our masterpieces. Each student will leave at the end of the week with a copy of their finished product to cherish forever.
