Answers to Common Questions about this Camp

  • How is this camp different from the other Minecraft camps you offer?

    • In Minecraft Expedition campers learn how to play, build basic structures, experiment with art and architecture, and begin to explore Redstone and commands
    • In Minecraft Redstone Engineering campers already familiar with Minecraft learn and use more advanced building techniques and tools
    • In Minecraft: Modding with Java campers who already know the game build new game elements to create their own custom version of Minecraft. Campers gain familiarity with Java, a professional coding language, and learn debugging, a core competency for aspiring programmers

  • How can Minecraft be a powerful way to learn?

    Minecraft can be a powerful way to teach students video game design, coding, architecture, animation, and electronics! It’s a great way to develop divergent-thinking creativity because the game offers many different ways to accomplish the same goal. Collaborative builds in a supportive context, like at Empow camp, are a great way to learn to work together. Plus, kids’ learning is propelled forward by their joy of the game, and their innate desire to learn all that being a great Minecraft player involves.

  • How does this camp fit into my child’s education and development?

    As students use commands, a simple scripting language, they gain the confidence to leap to more complete programming languages like Python. As campers learn and gain fluency using Redstone, they learn important electrical engineering concepts. And, as with all of Empow’s Minecraft camps, it’s a great way to exercise your creativity, ask for and accept feedback, and learn to work with new friends through collaborative builds.

  • What camp will this prepare my child to take next?

  • What is an Empow STEM camp day like?

    The Empow experience is all about big fun and big learning through creating awesome projects with cool tech. Whether they’re coding, designing video games, or sculpting in virtual 3D clay, we believe creativity is essential and is built into the DNA of our program design. Each online camp schedule is built around maximizing 3-hours of project time, but we also build in time for daily Stand-Ups at the start and close of each session. Each child is encouraged to share their plans, their challenges, and even a test version of their project so that opportunities are surfaced to work on group projects, provide support, and get feedback. We emphasize many kinds of collaboration because it’s an essential learning skill, it increases STEM learning, and because making friends with kids who have similar interests is one of the most awesome parts of camp! We also take 15 minutes each day to grab a snack, chat, and practice some self-care, but rest assured that this is a group activity and campers are supervised throughout the entire day. Outside of camp time, campers continue to have access to our learning resources and we encourage them to carve out their own independent project time between sessions. At week’s end, our rock star campers show off their ambitious projects to family and friends.

  • How is Empow STEM camp different from other similar programs?

    Empow’s STEM camps are uniquely able to meet the needs of children and young teens and their families.

    • Better Instructors for Children & Young Teens. Our instructors are exceptional at working with this age cohort, nurturing their budding passion for STEM, providing compelling tech-savvy role models, developing the social and emotional skills essential for kids and STEM-learning, and making camp fun! Like some programs, many of our instructors are recruited from top colleges, pass rigorous background checks, and are trained extensively. Unlike many programs, because we offer year-round STEM programs, many of our instructors work with us year-round, making them exceptionally capable.
    • Exclusively focused on the unique needs of Children & Young Teens. Elementary and middle school students should not be stressing about preparing for college applications or padding their resumes; camps with that focus are clearly designed for older students. Neither should they just be playing video games all day, as many so-called STEM camps have kids do. Rather, Empow camps meet age-appropriate learning and developmental goals: Exposure to STEM in a fun and supportive environment; Foundations for lifelong STEM learning which begin with making campers excited to keep learning more; Self-esteem and self-confidence from by overcoming obstacles, completing ambitious projects, and presenting them to family and peers; Friendships with like-minded local students that embrace their interests and personality; Social and emotional development which has been proven to advance STEM learning at this age in particular; Opportunity to accelerate into high-school level curriculum once they find STEM topics that ignite their passion; and Fun because great things happen when kids love to learn.
    • More Convenient, Safer, More Kid-Friendly Locations. Empow offers more camps, in more locations, to make life easier for busy parents. Whether at elite private schools like Milton and Winsor, or at our own year-round studios, our camps run on safe, kid-oriented campuses.
    • Year-round Local Programs. If your child finds their passion with STEM, Empow is there as your partner to continue the learning. Unlike STEM camps that are here only a few weeks each summer, we offer programs year-round with local in-person Afterschool Classes, Private Lessons, and camps during school vacation and holidays.
    • Lower prices. The best does not have to cost the most. Empow has won more awards for excellence, and is trusted by more local education partners, and still saves you 30% or more compared to some of the big national, summer-only STEM camps.

Rave Reviews From Parents Like You …

These virtual classes rock-- we love Empow!

I didn’t think I’d get to see my friends for awhile, but with the online Empow class, it’s like we’re together again!

These classes give me the time to get my own work done while knowing my child is learning valuable skills in a supervised setting. You've done a great job!

The small virtual class size and attentive and knowledgeable teachers make sure that my son is engaged and learning while also having fun!

My two kids attended virtual classes at Empow Studio today with their teachers and classmates, and it was a fantastic experience. Not only did it keep them busy during this challenging time when both my husband and I are trying to work from home, but it also provided them with an enriching academic activity and fulfilling interaction with their teachers and classmates!

Both my husband and I are physicians, and are having to work long hours while our kids are at home with limited supervision. You have thought of everything we are desperately in need of right now. THANK YOU!

THANKS FOR THINKING CREATIVELY TO ASSIST FAMILIES DURING THIS TIME!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for doing this for our children (and for us parents too)!!!!!

We Are Delighted to Announce That Empow Studios Has Been Chosen as a Family Favorite for the Seventh Consecutive Year!
