About Course

In this coding-centric Minecraft program, campers will approach a variety of in-game problems that require a mod (game modification) to overcome. Make chickens rain from the sky to distract the baddies and construct your own Minecraft car to drive through your world. Even Minecraft veterans will love our fully integrated modding interface that can be opened and used directly in the game itself. Our brand-new educational version of Minecraft is perfect for beginners and long-time players alike, stuffed to the brim with tutorials, late-game extensions, and quality-of-life features not found in mainstream Minecraft. Best of all, our campers will be playing on private servers with just the other kids in the room.  No Minecraft account is necessary to attend.
