Minecraft Camp

Minecraft Icon Empow Studios

The most popular game for kids is also the perfect environment to design, build, and code!

Campers of any skill level can use our custom Minecraft worlds to learn concepts in electrical engineering, computer science, and 3D modeling. We start with architecture and pixel art, and then guide the more experienced campers through the secrets of Redstone and Command Blocks. The expert campers can explore modding, learning to code in a drag-&-drop environment.

    Our Minecraft Camp is tailored to all skill levels, whether you are just starting out your explorations, or you already know your way around creepers. We start by introducing all of the creative Minecraft projects kids can create at Minecraft camp. Campers choose projects in our 3 core domains: Art & Design, Building, and Coding. If a camper is having trouble finding the project they want to create, no problem! They can do a taste test in all of our Minecraft tracks until they find the right fit. Throughout the week, it’s common to see a full-day camper to complete 2-3 Minecraft projects (i.e. pixel art designs and custom mods).

    Each morning and afternoon have demos so campers can create manageable small-scale projects, like command block automation, intro to modding, and pixel art.

    Early drop off is free, and extended day options are available at an additional charge.

    Minecraft Curriculum

    At Minecraft Camp, kids choose projects that level-up in our Art & Design, Building, and Coding domains. Each campers accomplishments are acknowledged in a way that is motivating, lasting, and flexible through the use of badges. Badges are awarded when kids complete tracks by conquering quests in our Minecraft curriculum. Watch our video below to learn more.

    Our Minecraft curriculum is based mostly on using Minecraft: Education Edition as a tool. This is a version of Minecraft that is designed for the classroom and used in schools across the world. Features in Minecraft Education Edition include barriers for each students, easier collaboration, and a portfolio feature where students can take pictures of their projects and store it in a digital photo album. Please note: worlds and projects created in Minecraft: Education Edition are not compatible with the Minecraft PC/Java version.
