If you love coding and you love Minecraft, this is the camp for you! We will learn how to modify the game in big ways and small, including custom weapons, useful enhancements, mini-games and more. All our mods will run in a real Minecraft world!
This camp is offered at our Chicago location (2867 N Clybourn Ave).
Camps are 3 hours long, and we give brains and bodies a chance to recharge with one 30 minute outdoor break. This may include walks around the neighborhood, social "hang-out" time at a green space, or casual games such as frisbee or basketball at our nearby park.
Note: Available in Chicago only
For the week of July 15, we are pleased to offer the option to add a half day of sports and games with our partner, We Got Game, to this camp.
Sports will primarily take place at Burley Elementary and may include swim time at Hamlin Park (dry activities will be accommodated for kids who don't swim).
The add-on includes lunch hour supervision at Hamlin Park, and an escorted walk between the two camps.
Please note that you will drop off in the morning at one camp and pick up in the afternoon at the other.
If you register in error, we have a 24 hour, no-fee cancellation policy. Just call us or email us within 24 hours and we will take care of it.
After that, you can receive a refund, less a $50 admin fee, up until 14 days before the camp starts.
There are no refunds within 14 days of camp start.
