What Will Kids Do at Camp?

In an online camp, your child will join the camp from the comfort of your home, through a laptop or desktop computer. They will design worlds, craft stories, and tackle shared challenges and epic builds.

Your child will make new friends and learn valuable skills like:

  • Coding, design, and media production.
  • Problem-solving.
  • Teamwork and collaboration.
  • Planning and organization.
  • Community building.

Our goal is to ignite a passion for learning, cooperation, and creation for all of our campers.

Here’s How Camps Work

CAMPS ARE FREE FOR ALL MEMBERS: With your Connected Camps membership, you’ll pay one monthly or annual fee to get unlimited access to all our camps and Labs. There’s no need to pay for camps individually.

HIGH-QUALITY ONLINE INSTRUCTION:We offer a variety of camps during the week, and on weekends. Every camp meets for 90 minutes a day while it’s in session, and start times vary depending on the camp session.

Your child will focus on one camp topic during the entire week, and they’ll work with consistent counselors during that time.

QUICK AND EASY RESERVATIONS: Because our seasonal camps are very popular, and we have a limited amount of spots, we ask that you make reservations for camps. All you need to do is reserve a spot for your child in any camps they’d like to attend – it’s fast and easy. Camp reservations close the Friday before the start date of camp.

EXPERIENCED COUNSELORS: During each camp, your child will get instruction, interaction, and guidance from experienced online counselors. Our counselors come directly from top university programs in computer science, media arts, and game design.

ACCESS TO OUR FREE ONLINE CLUBHOUSE: With your Connected Camps membership, you’ll get lifetime access to our safe, moderated, Kid Club Minecraft server on Fridays from 1pm – 5pm PST. Kid Club is an online clubhouse where active members and Connected Camps alumni can play, hang out, build, and create things together.

FREE ACCESS TO ALL LABS: Your Connected Camps membership also gives you unlimited access to all of our year-round Labs. Connected Camps Labs offer a fun, flexible and hands-on place for kids to design, create and code together. Labs run 7 days a week, year-round.

Here’s What Happens in the Camps

Each camp will run for one week.

Survival Camp: Ignite your kid’s problem-solving superpowers as they try to survive dense jungles, towering mountains, witch-infested marshes, and more. Your child will work with others to gather resources, tame their environment, and overcome challenges that require tight coordination and teamwork. By the end of the week, they’ll be part of the ultimate survival team!

Creative Camp: Power up your child’s planning and building skills! We’ll tackle new challenges every week in Creative Camp. Your child will learn to set goals and collaborate as we build new worlds, craft original stories, and become master designers in this fun, interactive online camp.

Adventure Camp: Want your child to explore, tell stories, and create maps, while also developing a passion for tech? Adventure Camp is the perfect choice for your family this summer. Adventure Campers will collaborate as they build their own adventure maps in Minecraft, learning the tricks of the trade from our tech-passionate counselors. This camp combines creativity, planning, and storytelling in a fun, interactive online camp.

Coding Camp: Learn the basics of computer coding in our custom-built Minecraft world. Campers will be able to switch between a visual and text-based programming interface while coding Lua-driven robots (“Turtles”) to solve problems and build their own projects. The overall goal is to move students beyond coding syntax and get them learning how code robust, unique programs to complete specific tasks. No coding experience is required.

Girls Only Camp: Does your daughter want to explore her STEM interests in a non-competitive, all-female environment? She can join our summer camps in a “Girls Only” setting. In our friendly, interactive, all-girls camps, your child can turn her interest in Minecraft into a passion for designing, building, and making programs run!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get started?
You can start signing up for camps as soon as you become a member. You can sign up for your free trial right away, then start browsing and reserving spots for your child.

Once you register for your membership, you’ll get an email that explains exactly how to sign up for camps.

Do summer camps get filled up?
Yes! Camp seats fill up fast so be sure to RSVP so your spot is secure. Camp reservations will close the Friday before camp begins.

“Are these program safe? I don’t want my kid coming into contact with questionable people or online predators.”
Yes, your child will be completely safe when participating in all our camps and Labs. All our Minecraft programs take place in a safe, moderated, server that is open only to Connected Camps participants and our counselors.

Although we will encourage campers to keep personal information private, we cannot prevent kids from sharing with one another online.  Moderators will remove personal information and explain to campers that sharing it violates our terms of service and risks their own privacy and security.

Is there a minimum age requirement?
Yes. Your child must be between 8 and 13 years old to participate in our camps. If you are a high school student, we also have volunteer opportunities available.

I have multiple kids, and I need to sign all of them up for your camps. How do I go about doing this?
Once you purchase a Connected Camps membership, you will have access to all of our camps. Upon purchase of a membership, you will be emailed a link to RSVP for the camps your kid would like to attend. A separate form will need to be filled out for each kid. Can’t find the link? Email us at support@connectedcamps.com

What’s the best way to choose which camps to take?

Our camps dive into challenges and activities that expand on our drop-in lab programs. Each camp will be focused around a particular topic and focused around completing a week-long goal. For example, in Media Camp, campers will go through the entire process of designing, recording, editing, and releasing a youtube video all in one week.

Because our camps give a focused challenge on the kinds of topics we explore in our labs, the labs are a great place to find out which topics interest you. Drop in to our daily labs to find your passion and sign up for the related camp to take a deep dive into that topic!

How do I cancel my membership?
You can cancel your membership at any time by logging into your account or by contacting us at support@connectedcamps.com or (323) 287-5580. It’s quick and easy, and we won’t hassle you.
