Minecraft is a sandbox construction game made up of two modes: Survival and Creative. Survival requires thought and preparation in order to prosper in a world brimming with dangers and challenges, while Creative mode gives players unlimited access to all in-game items to build and customize their 3-Dimensional environment.

Our Campers will be required to work as a team to build a thriving community within Survival Mode. In Creative Mode, they will learn basic architecture and geometry to improve their building ability and better grasp dimension and perspective.

This camp is for beginners and those already playing the game.
