Beginning Coding Camp

All camps are run online in our Minecraft servers.

Connect your child to a community of coders and watch their passion for programming blossom. They’ll learn to create programs to control their own pet “Turtles” before using them to solve mazes, harvest crops, build houses, and more. Our counselors love to code and share their passion for coding through hands-on instruction and mentoring. No coding experience required. Click here to see the full camp schedule.  

The 5 day camp includes 10 hours of online instruction on our custom Minecraft servers, led by expert counselors. Camp sessions run for 2 hours each day. As a camper, your child can continue to refine the skills they are learning in camp on our moderated, year-round Kid Club server, which comes free with camp registration. For ages 8-9 and 10-13.

*For the camp on the week of July 3rd, there will be no session will be held on Tuesday, July 4th. We will have an additional session on Saturday, July 8th instead.
