About Minecraft Team Survival Challenge

This camp series is a chance for youth to work together on Minecraft-related projects and games. Rather than follow a series of structured activities participants will be encouraged to work together on collaborative survival servers. We will have custom server setup with special monster challenges, but participants will be welcome to work on their own collaborative servers. PVP and death-match (Mineplex, Hunger Games, etc) will not be permitted, please make sure your child participant understands this.

Learning Process and Outcomes

Several youth volunteers and Fab Lab staff will be on-hand to act and mentors and provide crowd-control for activities. We will do our best to bring in subject area experts depending on camper interests, but may not be able to meet all needs. Particularly advanced and focused campers should investigate the //hack Minecraft camp.

Take-Home Creations

The major goals for this camp are to help participants make new friends and organically learn to work together in teams. We will not be specifically covering any advanced tools or fabrication techniques. As a result, participant learning outcomes will depend entirely upon what they decide to invest into their camp experience.
