Join us for an immersive camp that combines coding and imaginative storytelling in the creative, collaborative space of MODA’s Minecraft design server.
In this camp, we’ll use the design process to create interactive stories.
We'll talk about why we tell stories and why we love to listen to them and read them. Then, campers will compose stories independently and collaboratively and build Minecraft worlds in which those stories can take place.
Along the way they'll become better storytellers, learn key concepts of the architectural design process, use Minecraft as a CAD tool to create and interact in worlds of their own, and hone coding skills that let them use Minecraft more efficiently.

This was the best virtual camp my child has attended! My son continued to work on his project even when the class ended each day! Moda exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend them for virtual and in person camps!
I would recommend when having to download a specific app or program, to give clear instructions on which one to choose.

My 8-year-old daughter loved it, and wants to sign up for more like it this summer! I am grateful for the virtual option, too.
For “pirates or Vikings” she really wanted to do Vikings.
