Summer Camp – Modding Minecraft (Grades K-7) – June 27-July 1, 2016

June 27, 2016 @ 9:00 am - July 1, 2016 @ 4:00 pm

$50 – $350

Join us for a week of Minecraft Modding!

Kids will learn how to:

  • Create and use skins and texture packs
  • Install and use mods
  • Create very basic mods, using drag-and-drop tools
  • Mod Minecraft, using JavaScript, Python, and Java (maybe… see note in section about grade levels)

Plus we’ll spend part of the day in our STEAM Lab (also known as the Crafting Room), where kids will do Minecraft-themed activities to explore topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.

This camp is for kids who have completed grades K through 7 during the 2015-2016 school year. We will group the kids by grade level and experience. The JavaScript modding will only be taught to kids who are able to read on at least a 3rd grade level. Only kids should be very comfortable typing will be allowed to do the Python and Java activities.

This camp is Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm. Before and after care are available for an additional cost.

Approximately 12 days before camp, you will receive an email with information about materials for some of the activities that we will do for this camp. We try to keep all of the materials we ask you to bring in under $20. If you wish to purchase your materials sooner, you can check the Camp Materials page. We will add the materials lists for specific camps about 2 weeks before each camp.
