AGILE XPS: Youth Minecraft Summer Camps
Our youth Minecraft summer camps take a strong storytelling and collective worlding approach. The main skill students will come away with is how to use virtual worlds to tell stories in effective ways to engage and affect the real world around them. We learn to govern our shared world by creating and mastering imaginary worlds in Minecraft using “The Magical Power of the Lectern for Crafting Our Dream Cities.” The camp allows participants to enter a deeply expanded version of a shorter workshop given by teacher Cody Lestelle (a.k.a. @m4dpr0f) at Minefaire Seattle in May. Each cohort/group meets for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, for two weeks. Our scholar-creators are free to continue expanding upon their collaborations and creations on their own time after their cohort officially graduates since their creations will remain on our Minecraft Multiversity server. Below is the meeting schedule for all four cohorts, A-D. Those who are based on Oʻahu may join us at HPU eSports Arena for technology access. Those who are joining online from home must have their own device and high speed internet connection.
- Cohort A – June 3 – 14, 12:00PM – 3:00PM Hawaiian Time
- Cohort B – June 24 – July 5, 12:00PM – 3:00PM Hawaiian Time
- Cohort C – July 15 – 26, 12:00PM – 3:00PM Hawaiian Time
- Cohort D – August 5 – 16, 4:30PM – 7:30PM Hawaiian Time
We have game servers for Minecraft Java and Minecraft Bedrock. For those playing from home it is recommended to use Minecraft Java if you have a computer that can run it because we are able to do more on our Java server. However, for those running Minecraft Bedrock (Windows 10, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices all play together) we also have a Minecraft Bedrock server and will facilitate your participation in the camp there. Please note that once you purchase Minecraft Java you will also get a free code for Minecraft Bedrock Windows 10 version and you will own the game for life with the ability to install it on multiple computers. The $26.95 USD for the game is well worth having access to the ever growing AGILE Multiversity and many other exciting virtual environments. For those trying to decide between starting with Java or Bedrock it is recommended that you purchase Java because it comes with free access to your own copy of the Windows 10 version as well. See Store link to purchase for different devices.
