Do you love to create, build, design, and play? If so, Minecraft and Technology Innovation Camp is for you! Campers will explore video game creation, play on, and compete with a Minecraft team to complete the daily challenge, design and create 3D worlds, and much more. All proficiency levels are welcome, and activities will be tailored to meet campers at their personal ability level. We will be using Minecraft.edu to learn some amazing coding tricks to take your Minecraft skills to another level. Students will explore and learn 3D design using Tinkercad and will learn to code using languages such as Python, Scratch, and JavaScript. Every day will include two outdoor recess breaks, as well as a break for lunch. Campers should bring their tech enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and PLAY!
Please note:
  • Participants should provide their own lunch (that does not need to be refrigerated) and a water bottle.
  • We do not offer before or after care for summer camps.
