This camp combines the best of technology and the arts for a fun interdisciplinary experience. Take a journey where you create in Minecraft while also writing a piece of short fiction to go along with the structure you build. Collaborate with other campers as you learn the basics of Minecraft, writing and voice-over recording.

You can expect to complete a large-scale structure in Minecraft based around your story, a short fiction story based in the original world you create and a short voice-over recording explaining the structure and story. At the end of the workshop, we’ll compile all structures into one epic Minecraft world that you can explore, checking out each other’s structures and stories.

Free-build and free-writing sessions help you build and communicate with other students, and breaks and musical interludes during long sessions create a sense of community as campers work together on final projects. We’ll use Minecraft Education Edition, which is available for Windows, MAC, iPad and Chromebook. View minimum hardware and software requirements.

This camp meets online from noon to 4 p.m. each day. This camp is recommended for students in grades 5-9 but may be accessible to both older and younger students with additional support.
