Connected Camps is expanding rapidly and in addition to all the new Summer Camps and changes in Kid Club, we have two more offerings for families!

Our Connected Craft Minecraft Server is NOW LIVE! This is a free Minecraft server for ages 13 – 17 that runs Wednesdays through Fridays from 1pm – 3pm PST and Saturdays through Sundays from 1pm – 5pm PST.

Players have the freedom to participate in the server however they wish. Special events that are led by community members and counselors will keep things engaging and interesting as play continues over time.

In our new and free Connected Craft Minecraft Server, players can…

  • Play Minigames
  • Survive in Minecraft
  • Build in Creative Mode
  • Engage in Community Events

In addition, Connected Camps is seeking friendly and fun High School students who love working with kids to volunteer with us this summer. If you love Minecraft, Roblox, or Esports– or know someone who does– then this may be a great fit! Volunteers assist lead counselors in running our fun and educational online programs. These mentors get to join an active, growing community of kids and level up professional skills in public speaking, conflict management, and leadership!
