This camp is for kids that love Minecraft and Computer Programming. Students will learn the basics of the Java programming language as they create their very own Minecraft Mod. (Note: While many kids would love to create their own Minecraft mod, this is a technical and focused process. The age limit is set to 10 yrs old since we’ve learned that many younger kids are more focused on installing mods and learning commands inside the Minecraft game. Please contact us if you would like to discuss if this class is appropriate for your child.)
