About this camp

Focusing on the latest and more complex features of Minecraft together with the newly reworked command system, your child will learn fundamental programming constructs required to design and build a ‘game world’ in which their game will take place. This game will have multiple states using the principles of the FSM (finite state machine). Using Minecraft Java edition, your child’s game will be playable on a LAN (local area network) with family and friends.
