Coding & Game Design
ArcadeCAMP Scratch (Grades 3-6)
Cost: $275/5-day camp. This is the camp to take for those that want their creativity to run wild using Scratch! Campers will be introduced to game development and programming, create games based on classics such as Whac-a-Mole, Pong, Frogger, Snake or Tetris, and use what they learn to create their own computer games! Participation in Intro to Programming is recommended but not required to register for this camp.
Coding with Roblox (Grades 4-8)
Cost: $275/5-day camp. Campers will learn to write Lua code to create more advanced games in the Roblox Studio! Campers will be able to use both a drag and drop interface as well as write text-based code for their game, learning to use loops, the random math function and more to develop a full Roblox game. Publish, share and play online with friends and the world on any platform from console to mobile. Coding for curious minds!
Intro to Programming: Scratch: (Grades 2-5)
Cost: $275/5-day camp. Campers will use Scratch, a software program from MIT. The program was designed for children, and teaches them the basics of programing as they create animated stories, video games, and interactive artwork. Using colorful programming blocks, campers drag and “snap” together the blocks to make a character (sprite) walk, speak, play music, or interact with other sprites. Computer programming is considered the new literacy and young people now have an opportunity to put together multimedia programs without any previous programming knowledge. As children create with Scratch, they learn to think creatively, work collaboratively, and reason systematically.
Minecraft 3D Supreme: (Grades 3-8)
Cost: $275/5-day camp. This camp is for campers who have a strong understanding of the Minecraft fundamentals. Campers will experience all of Minecraft’s end-game content from exploring End Cities to find Elytra wings and protecting villages from raids, to building Beacons after defeating a challenging boss. These parts of the game are more challenging to reach and play and are recommended for experienced players looking to get more out of their usual Minecraft playthrough to become a Minecraft champion!
Minecraft account is NOT needed for this camp as we have licenses ready for camp use.
If campers wish to use their own Minecraft account, they must bring their login credentials with them. Our camp uses Minecraft Java edition which is different from Minecraft (Bedrock) played on Xbox, Ipad, etc. or downloaded from the Microsoft Store. To purchase your own Minecraft: Java account (OPTIONAL), use this link: https://minecraft.net/en-us/get-minecraft/ . ($26.95).
Minecraft Modding: (Grades 4-8)
Cost: $275/5-day camp. (NOT for Minecraft beginners, must be experienced with Minecraft.) Did you know that Minecraft™ was built using Java™ code? In this camp, campers will build their own Minecraft servers in Java! If your camper aspires to be the greatest Minecraft warrior of all time, this camp is for them. Campers will learn valuable real world programming skills while building a variety of ‘games within the game’ using a specially designed code editor that supports both drag-and-drop and text based programming in a single environment. This camp is a brilliant way for campers to explore their creativity through real computing and have a blast sharing their mods with their friends in and out of camp! Even better, campers can continue to create new mods on their own and share them with friends after camp ends! All campers ARE REQUIRED to have a Minecraft™ account for this camp. Our camp uses Minecraft Java edition which is different from Minecraft (Bedrock) played on Xbox, Ipad, etc. or downloaded from the Microsoft Store. To purchase a Minecraft: Java account, use this link: https://minecraft.net/en-us/get-minecraft/ . ($26.95). Campers must check in on the first day with their login credentials for Minecraft to ensure a streamlined learning experience.
