DANIELS MINECRAFT CAMP

Our Daniels Minecraft Camp is back and better than ever! This program uses your participant’s love of Minecraft to explore the fundamentals of design and architecture while building teamwork and communication skills. This summer, we have partnered with two student groups: UofT eSports and Applied Architecture, Landscape and Design Group (AALD) to bring you two NEW programs - Level 1 (Cityscapes) and Level 2 (World Building and Game Design). We will be offering our camp as a 1-week full-day or 2-week half-day program.

Level 1 explores urban design and city planning! From the cities of antiquity, to drones and automated cars, Level 1 uses Minecraft to introduce urban planning, community building, city infrastructure, mapping and careers in architecture to consider how communities around the world build over time. With guest lecturers and digital field trips, participants will develop the fundamentals of visual thinking and problem solving while creating their own levels, worlds, games and elaborate environments in Minecraft.  

Level 2 uses the fundamentals of building and design to focus on large scale world building and storytelling through game design. Participants will work alongside their peers and employ narrative to develop interactive worlds and games. Our camp allows participants to be online working on activities that are collaborative and creative. Level 2 uses storyboarding, set design and storytelling to develop and build parts of the Minecraft world in a team setting. 

In both Level 1 & 2, campers will play some classic Minecraft games liked bed wars, hunger games and spleef to learn about the gamification of the biomes with their teams. We will have 5 participants with 1 leader. Join our online Minecraft camp for a summer full of fun and creativity! 

WHO?
This summer program is designed for all participants aged 8 to 14 (grades 3 to 8) who are interested in design, technology, art, science, and engineering. Ages will be grouped (8-10 and 11-14). Participants have more fun when they’re grouped with their friends so please let us know and can match accordingly. 

WHAT & WHY?
Minecraft is not only a game but a powerful design tool. This program fosters design skills and collaboration with group work through both Minecraft and other digital platforms. 
The program will also includes guest visits, virtual field trips and special lectures. Students will leave the program with a certificate given to them during the graduation ceremony.

WHERE?
This program is delivered online on our private Minecraft Server and through Zoom. Participants will need a Zoom account and Minecraft Java Edition account.

WHEN?
The Daniels Minecraft Winter program will be streamed into two levels. 
Students will have some live instruction and some time to work individually and in teams.
Mentors will be monitoring and supporting students during their individual and team work. 

  • Level 1: Cityscapes
  • Level 2: World Building & Game Design.

We will be offering our camp as a 1-week full-day or 2-week half-day program.
