Game Design Camp

All camps are run online in our Minecraft servers.

Level up your child’s interest in game design as they learn to design their very own Minecraft minigames! From Ender golf courses to Capture the Flag, to puzzles and racing games, they’ll discover the craft of game design online. We’ll start them out playing a new game as a way to get the creative juices flowing. They’ll then work with others to design, build, test, and play! 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.

What Parents are Saying

These camps are great! He told me I did not learn anything I was having too much fun…Then he said guess what I can do now….When he finished telling me (much later) I guess he learned a lot. Thanks we signed up for 2 more weeks. —Ann T

My daughter is super excited about this…thank you! She has an illness that keeps her out of school often and rarely has the chance to do camps and after school activities. She LOVED your summer camps. —Eleanor G
