Join us for this exciting camp that combines programming robots AND challenges and survival in Minecraft.

Meet Edison! Campers will learn to work with this LEGO® compatible, programmable Bot while discovering basic robotics. They will begin by using barcodes to program Edison, then will move on to graphical programming. They will program Edison to make music and communicate with other bots as they create and complete challenges.

Minecraft Hunger Games Style! Campers will also face challenges including crafting and smelting tools to mine the best ores and taming animals in the campground world to prepare themselves to be washed up on a desert island.  Once there they must find ways to survive creating everything themselves from scratch using just the Minecraft blocks, their mining and crafting talents and their imaginations and ingenuity.  The gathering of resources and development of villages gives children an insight into the various elements of survival, settlement, and exploration.  Before leaving the island, the students storm the local castle by solving the puzzles and avoiding the traps.

Join us for this innovative camp that has campers programming with Xbox controllers, programming using 3D graphics, and designs apps.

Campers will use Xbox controllers to design, program and present their own unique video game. They will learn to add objects, add scoring elements, create paths, and add multiple characters. They will navigate the Xbox 360 Gamepad and build their technical skills as they create enjoyable, fun, and challenging games.

Then campers will use an innovative block-based programming environment to create their own 3D simple games and animations. This class is designed to teach logical and computational thinking skills, fundamental principles of game-design and coding and to be a first exposure to object-oriented programming. Campers will learn to program character interaction, movement, and control keys within their own games and animations.  Nemo, Dory, flying dragons and aliens will keep students engaged and having fun as they learn.

Lastly, campers will learn how to be an app developer and design their own smartphone apps. Whether it’s for an iphone or android they will learn the essentials of designing and programming a mobile app. They will be using an intuitive, easy to use platform that’s perfect for first-timers and loaded with features for the more adventurous. Campers will get to grips with some key programming concepts and ease their way into their first steps in Java while having fun creating fully functioning apps.

Please let us know if your plans change and your child will not be attending camp so we can give the spot to another child.

Please pay by credit card or check before camp begins. A non-refundable $25 registration fee is included in the deposit. (This registration fee applies to the camp fee.) The remaining balance is due and will be charged to your method of payment 10 days before the session begins.
