Spring Minecraft modding for creative minds!
Turn that love of playing games into a passion for creating them with our modding masterclass.
***Please note: we have an Early Bird discount of £50 for our May half-term camps which is already added to the price (discount expires on 13th May)!***
Classes are held from 10 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday or Tuesday to Friday
This course combines the love of video gaming with the interest of game development and turns video games into game makers by teaching students coding. With two levels available, this is an excellent course for both beginner modders and experienced coders.
We’ll learn how to use loops, functions, variables, and conditionals and expand our knowledge in game making using code. We’ll also learn how to administer and use code commands on our own private servers.
This course will challenge our beginner modders as well as the master modders, as lots of challenges and extensions await everyone as they progress throughout the week. In one week, your child will learn more than most kids do during the whole school year.
Don’t just leave your child to play Minecraft - get them to create it!

Achievements and outcomes
Our teachers will actively record your child’s work throughout the camp and share it with you through ClassDojo - an app which allows you to see photos of your child’s work, be involved in your child’s progress and message the teachers directly if you have any questions. The children will also receive a certificate of completion on the final day.
We will also send you a report card updating you on your child's progress after camp.
