Minecraft modding is a great way to learn programming, harness creativity, and enhance problem-solving skills while making your favorite game even better. Create super swords, obstacle courses and more without any limits! Using the full power of Java campers can take their Minecraft mods to the next level and learn the most popular programming language in the world at the same time! With Java, campers learn how to give items special powers, create new game modes, and modify the layout of the world. Each camper will have access to a personal Minecraft server that allows them the freedom to create whatever their imagination thinks up!
*Camp tuition includes a 3-week subscription (week of camp + 2) to a premium Minecraft modding development environment with access to a private server. You may choose to extend the subscription by signing up on a monthly basis afterwards.
