Minecraft

Join us as we explore, learn, problem solve, and create amazing and unique worlds together using the popular game Minecraft. Minecraft is a 3-D simulation game in which players work on their own, or collaboratively, to discover resources and use them to craft and build a unique world. Participants will spend time being challenged by puzzles, quests, and games as they explore the worlds of Minecraft. This class was sold out last year, so don't wait!!

Keyboarding for Kids!!

Keyboarding is becoming more and more of a standard skill needed and used regularly. The goal of this camp is to provide a comfortable and receptive environment where children can acquire these keyboarding skills. Being familiar and comfortable with typing can aid with concentration, reduce the stresses associated with school work and assist the child in recognizing and identifying his/her own accomplishments. This camp will teach keyboarding technique, accuracy and speed, use software that engages the student and reinforces continued practice, include lessons, games, and exercises and much, much, more!!
