We’ve written plenty about Connected Camps (they are a sponsor) and their great Minecraft coding camps for kids who want to learn how to program. Next week, their next weekday coding camp gets started up, and it’s the perfect time to get your kids a little technical education so they can take their passion for Minecraft to the next level. But what’s better is that we have an amazing deal that’ll save you plenty on the camp and something else. But first, here are the basics:
For kids aged 10-14, CC is starting a 4-week camp (two 1.5-hour sessions per week, for a total of 8 sessions) in October where they can learn in-game programming for Minecraft using the Lua programming language. All the “work” is done on secure servers and in small virtual groups.
Additionally, there’s an ongoing Kid’s Club membership available that allows the kids to use the secure, moderated servers and participate in other special events, so parents can be sure everything is safe.

* Two sessions per week for 4 weeks
* Small camp size: 2 counselors, max 12 campers

Notice how I crossed the prices out? Yeah, the folks at CC are offering GeekDad folks a very special last-minute offer (because they love us) – use the coupon code GEEKDAD and you’ll get the 4-week coding camp AND SIX MONTHS OF THE KIDS’ CLUB for just $100!
