At theCoderSchool, we can teach coding through the video game Minecraft. Kids at our Minecraft Coding Camps learn how to build, create, and modify in their worlds through coding. We use Minecraft for our summer camps and sometimes even our after-school programs because kids love it: It’s easy to learn, is engaging, and is perfect for kids 9 years old and up.
While known for its popularity among games, Minecraft can be educational. Our students come away with hands-on experience of programming in a fun and accessible format.
If your child is new to coding, Minecraft camp offers a good introduction. Far from boring syntax memorization, the Minecraft teaching platform gives kids a glimpse into the world of virtual world development. The Minecraft coding camp experience adds to the fun, as kids get to learn and code together in a social and collaborative environment.
Our educators are committed to helping kids learn while they’re at camp. The learning experience will include some bit of gameplay, but it will also test their problem-solving skills and give them a chance to get creative. Coding is all about inventive thinking, and tech camps like the Minecraft camp is a perfect intro to coding.
Campers will come away with great exposure to fundamental coding concepts such as loops, variables, and functions. As students get more creative with their coding, they’ll have a chance to learn more complex coding concepts. We’re confident that Minecraft can teach kids coding, and our Code Coaches will be there to help them pick up key concepts along the way.
Coding doesn’t have to be boring or complicated, and our Minecraft camps help kids learn in a supportive and fun environment. Depending on the location, theCoderSchool offers Minecraft learning in several settings, from day camps to summer camps and afterschool programs. Sign up for a camp (or lessons) near you to start your child’s coding journey today.
