Playing games is fun! Making them is even better. In PlayCraft, we learn how to build simple Minecraft mini-games and then use Command Blocks to insert short lines of code that bring our games to life.

What will my Child Learn?

Game & Level Design Fundementals

Your child will learn basic Game Design Principles and apply these principles to building a number of different levels in their own Minecraft Mini-Game.

Command Block Coding

Your child will learn how Command Blocks are obtained and coded in Minecraft. They will use these blocks to bring their game to life – inserting short lines of code to allow their player to teleport, monsters to spawn and the weather to change.

Essential Requirements for PlayCraft


What Should We Bring?

You will need to supply your child with lunch and snacks. There is nothing else needed.

What Should We Know?

Your child does NOT need any prior Coding or Command Block experience. However, it is recommended that they be familiar with Minecraft (on any platform). Children with no Minecraft experience should rather enroll in our MakeCraft Think Camp first.

What Happens in a Think Camp Day?
