Elementary Edition: June 15-18, 2020

Description

Are you a rising 3rd, 4th or 5th grade student interested in participating in a virtual Minecraft camp this summer? Our “Minecraft Virtual Challenge Camp: Elementary Edition” is for you! For four days, you’ll spend two hours per day meeting virtually with other campers and building as well as completing challenges in Minecraft Education Edition. These will include team building challenges, individual exploration challenges, and coding challenges. Prior experience with Minecraft is not required but is recommended and can be helpful. Campers will learn how to take and share screenshots of their Minecraft creations and achievements, and share them with classmates via our Minecraft Camp Seesaw learning journal and blog. This camp is entirely virtual and does NOT include any face-to-face meetings at Casady School. (Registration instructions are available.)
