About the Camp

 

Video Game Creation Camp Descriptions: Updated for 2018!

Modding, Networking and Hosting with Minecraft Ages 8 – 16

 

Minecraft is hugely popular because it’s collaborative, open­ended and moddable. Our program preserves those qualities and adds a large dose of fun! The week begins with learning the game, controls, recipes and a bit about hosting & networking. Next campers are connecting to different worlds hosted on our secure server and experimenting with character skins, mods and custom maps. By day three the kids are building in the Active Learning World that grows over time. Whether adding a room, building a moat or even creating a chessboard the possibilities are nearly limitless. This is a half­day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.

 

Video Game Creation – Platform Style – Like Sonic & Mario Ages 8 ­ 16, Introductory to Intermediate In this camp children build a game described as a "platform" game like Sonic or Mario. Children have a blast as their characters do the impossible, overcome obstacles and opponents and then conquer the Big Boss. The character progresses on a long path (like a journey) with the background scrolling behind it and adversaries, prizes, obstacles, are encountered as it goes. Lessons on the basics will be similar to the Arcade course in the very beginning, but the class diverges and different programming techniques are taught in order to build this Platform game. This is a half­day program. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp. 4

 

Kodu Video Game Creation – Adventure Ages 7 ­ 16, Introductory to Intermediate Children will have the option of learning how to program using a Microsoft Xbox controller! Students will create their own cool custom world and navigate through it. Within this world they will create tasks that need to be completed in order to progress to the next level. Some of those tasks include escaping a sewer maze, survival mode, outwitting rivals, creating decoys and collecting bonus items all while having fun! This is a half­day camp. Xbox controller is optional and supplied by the student. Students can add an additional program to make it a full day camp.
