Summer can be a tough time for kids if there’s nothing goal-oriented to focus on, and if getting them somewhere for a camp experience (whether day or stay) isn’t possible, what can you do to keep them stimulated, learning, and having fun?
If your kids are into Minecraft, we have a great idea.
We’ve been working with our sponsor, Connected Camps, for a while now. They run safe and dedicated Minecraft servers for kids to play and learn on in a secure, monitored environment. And over the summer, they run virtual summer camps for kids to play and take their Minecraft fun to the next level.
For two hours each day over a 5-day week, your kids can learn all about Minecraft, from the basics of play to coding and architecture, in-game engineering, and game design. There are camps for mixed groups, a variety of knowledge levels and ages (8-15), and even girls-only camps, to empower next-level STEM learning.
On top of the camp, kids are automatically registered for the Minecraft Kids Club, giving them access to the Connected Camps’ secure, moderated servers whenever they want to hone their new skills or just have some fun.
The Minecraft Summer Camps start June 27th, and each one-week camp regularly costs $139, but right now they are offering early-bird specials for just $99 (and 50% off each additional camp). But on top of all that, Connected Camps is offering an EXTRA 25% OFF THE FIRST CAMP TO GEEKDAD READERS! Just use the code GEEKDADSUMMER at checkout.
