Benefits of learning with online Minecraft camps

Minecraft nurtures a passion for play. When kids play games together, you might have noticed they create their own rules and modify the games as they go. Perhaps you've even heard your child lament that they wish they could add or change something in their electronic games? When kids learn to code they can actually make some of those adjustments! Here are a few ways learning Minecraft modding can benefit your student:

  • Develop creativity skills quickly with flexible software and no mess
  • Learn faster by using something they’re already excited about and familiar with
  • Explore real-world issues in immersive, imaginative worlds
  • Improve your computational thinking with in-game coding
  • Build empathy and learn digital citizenship by interacting with other students in online camp
  • Pick up new skills from the comfort of your home
  • Get access to the best instructors from around the world

Why is Minecraft camp more fun than just playing the game?

While playing Minecraft is fun, when students learn how to code for it they improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Beginner to advanced students in our Minecraft camps learn how to solve all sorts of puzzles including how to make characters move, take actions, and react to the environment. As a result, they create their own storylines, goals, and more. Students are also able to build their creativity skills because they find out how to place and break blocks, build structures, and spawn animals. As they get more experienced, they even have the opportunity to build their game design and development skills within the Minecraft game, including battles, rock, paper, scissors, and more.

How to pick the best Minecraft camp for your student

Sometimes parents ask us where the best place to begin learning Minecraft coding is for their student. Here are a few quick tips to get you started in the right camp:

  1. Your child's grade: The first consideration should be your child’s age group. Make sure the camp you pick has their grade level listed.
  2. Prior coding experience: We encourage all students to start from Unit 1 even if you have prior coding experience or even have coded with Minecraft. Our classes are designed to be approachable for absolute beginners, but also provide plenty of fun and challenges for students with some experience.
  3. Budget: Purchasing a complete program such as the Minecraft Modding Program can help you save.
  4. Schedule: Pick a schedule that matches your child's time preferences. If they’re a night owl, pick an evening class. Or you’d prefer something only once per week rather than multiple times each week, check out the Minecraft Coding Club.
  5. More questions: If you're not sure where to start, you can always email us at support@createandlearn.us, and we'll get you set up.

What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is the best-selling video game of all time. In the game players can create and break apart various kinds of blocks in three-dimensional worlds. Minecraft is a game that you can play with friends. Build together, search together, have fun together. Many players use it not as a game itself, but as a game engine in which to create their own games. Other players even create their own mods to introduce new items and behaviors in the game.

The game has two different modes: Creative Mode and Survival Mode. While in Creative Mode, if you can dream it, you can build it. Kids have access to all the Minecraft blocks, potions, weapons, and more. This is where kids can construct anything they desire with an infinite amount of resources.

You can also play to survive, in Survival Mode. Battle mobs, construct shelter, and explore the landscape—it’s all in a day’s work when you try to survive and thrive in Survival Mode. This is the most common way kids play Minecraft.
