Create Your Own Minecraft® mod! In this camp from Youth Digital, kids learn real Java™ programming as they design and code their own Minecraft mod from start to finish. Kids can use all their craziest ideas to create their own blocks, items, mobs, and more to add whatever they can think of into Minecraft! A sword made out of pizza? How about a mob of marshmallow minions? Make it all happen in Mod Design Camp.
Kids learn the foundations of Java™ to create their own totally custom mod! Java™is one of the most widely-used programming languages in the world and kids will use the pro development software Eclipse to learn all the fundamentals of coding including instantiation, methods, parameters, loops and more to create their own mod.
At the end of camp, kids will walk away with an awesome Minecraft mod that they can download and share with friends! They’ll also be able to access the online version of the course after camp, including video tutorials, interactive quizzes, and new challenges so they can keep using their new skills!
This camp will have the opportunity to swim on Friday if weather and time permits.
