Minecraft Architects
Date: August 6 – 10  Time: 1 – 4 p.m.  Ages: 8 – 15  Cost: $175
This camp is designed to spark creative thinking, develop spatial visualization skills and improve math proficiency using the popular video game Minecraft. Kids will work as a team to build structures that meet specific guidelines while taking environmental features into consideration. They’ll also have to use advanced problem-solving skills to defeat the real-world challenges of limited resources and time. Click here to register.

Minecraft Societies
Date: August 6–10  Time: 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.  Ages: 8 – 14  Cost: $175
Minecraft Societies challenges kids to use teamwork, ingenuity and problem-solving skills as they learn about the pillars that make a great society. Campers start in a harsh environment and discover what it takes to start out as an outpost. From there, they’ll vote on what they would like their city to focus on: security, education, healthcare and public works. At the end of camp, team interviews and a video flyby of their city will be posted on 8Bit’s site! Click here to register.
