Minecraft Camp

For this first time we are offering Camper Slots in a Virtual Minecraft Summer Camp.

 

As affiliates of Connected Camps we offer a summer subscription to a special Minecraft Server moderated and staffed with camp counselors, phlebologist who play, mentor and guide participants throught the game.

As a unique bonus, we are also offering a “grown-up” Minecraft subscription, that also allows access to a moderated “grown-up” server, and guidance and support for learning the ins and outs of this sandbox game.

 

Kick-Off Meeting for Kids and Adults!

Join us for an evening of “Introduction to Minecraft” for adults, as we discuss the game, the ways kids use it and some of the learning and life benefits it affords.  It is often hard to believe that a game could provide useful learning, but this game offers a multitude of applications and explorations, leading to discoveries and experimentation that are a natural part of a healthy childhood.

 

As adults learn ways to understand and approach the Minecraft craze kids can try out Minecraft “actual” hands-on games and crafts, facilitated by experienced counselors.  Meet other kids who love the game and see what you can find out about each other, try team-building challenges, puzzles, and have fun playing together.
