Creative Coding in Scratch
Open your child’s eyes to the world of creative coding using Scratch, a program that helps kids visualize and then craft code. Ignite an interest in the creative possibilities of programming, including games, animations, and interactive stories. Scratch is a great first platform for learning coding fundamentals.


Your child will create new worlds, strategize, and learn to build like a pro as they unlock the mysteries of Minecraft by exploring creative, survival, and adventure modes. Choose from three different camps:

Tech Academy in Minecraft
Grow your child’s creative talents and kick-start their tech future. Fuel an interest in coding, engineering with redstone, or game design. Your child can focus on 1-1 instruction with our 1-1 Coding Bundle, or learn and collaborate with others in Coding Camp, Engineering with Redstone Camp, or Game Design Camp.

Camps Just For Girls
Connect your daughter with other girls who love to design, build, code, and create in our girls-only camps. Our Camps for Girls are designed to support girls in leveling up their skills in cool STEM topics like coding, game design, and survival mode. All of our camps come in girls-only versions and emphasize turning an interest in Minecraft into a passion for designing, building, and making programs run.


WHAT WILL MY CHILD BE DOING DURING CAMP?

Each of our camps is designed around community, creation, and exploration. During camp sessions your child will talk, build, and play with the other campers and the counselors, sharing projects, ideas, and feedback. Your child will have the opportunity to get help if they need it and to share what they know with others. By the end of the week your child will have created a few projects of their own and made a lot of new friends. They will also have gained experience in developing these valuable life skills:

  • Creativity
  • Problem-solving
  • Teamwork and Collaboration
  • Planning
  • Communication

WHO ARE YOUR COUNSELORS?

Our counselors are as enthusiastic about Minecraft as our campers, and come from top university programs in computer science, game development, and design. We run a background check as part of our counselor hiring process and all of them are trained to educate and inspire your child.

5 WAYS ONLINE TECH CAMP CAN BOOST YOUR CHILD’S SUMMER LEARNING

1. Try Something New

If you have a kid that isn’t sure what they are interested in, treat the summer as a time to explore. You can create a full summer of fun that works like a sampler. Take one week of online Survival camp to learn the ropes of Minecraft; a second week of Game Design, and then a third week later in the summer devoted to Creative Coding in Scratch. Your child will spend the summer getting creative in a bunch of different topics. They may even discover a true passion among them!

2. Build on an Existing Interest

Summer is a great time for a child to dig deep into an area of interest. You might have a kid with a nascent interest in learning to code, for example. Send them to three weeks of online tech camp in topics related to coding, like Coding in Minecraft, Coding with Scratch, and Engineering with Redstone. They’ll gain an understanding of the possibilities of coding while building a portfolio of projects they can show off once school starts up again.

3. Practice, Practice, Practice

Getting better at something requires practice. Like a budding basketball player who shoots hoops for an hour every day, kids who want to up their Minecraft game need to practice. Doing so with the help of expert mentors not only makes it more fun, but can amplify the pace of learning. Treat the entire summer as a practice space. Survival Camp has a new theme and biome to explore each week. They’ll never get bored. Just better!

4. Connect to a Community of Tech-passionate Mentors

Recent research in the learning sciences points to the enormously positive role mentors who share an interest can play in the lives of a child. During camp your child will connect with youth tech experts and benefit from their mentorship. Our counselors not only teach our camps and courses, but also moderate our free kid-friendly Minecraft server, which is open 365 days a year. Mentorship that begins during camp can continue throughout the year!

5. Take on a Leadership Role as a Junior Volunteer

During and after summer camp we invite all the campers to join our free Kid Club server. On the Kid Club server they’ll get together with other campers and counselors in a more relaxed, community driven environment. Campers looking to get involved more with the community can become Junior Volunteers by being helpful and friendly. They might show around new players, add new minigames to the server, or even help out with next year’s summer camps.
