(Operated by Lavner Camps)

June 19–23
July 10–14

CO-ED GRADES 1–5

Welcome to the amazing world of programming with Scratch, where campers gain great experience with computer science!

Campers use Scratch, a program created by the MIT Media Lab, to create, program, and share projects. Campers code from the backend to create character actions and interactions, in addition to establishing entire interactive adventures and stories.

Scratch uses a programming language that is in easy to understand English and created for its own platform. By moving and combining blocks of code, campers develop their own programs to create super cool animation projects. Campers can also make their animations interactive by including instructions, designing their character’s costumes, adding unique background images and sounds, programming their “sprites” (the objects that perform the actions in the project) to dance, sing, and talk, in addition to other endless possibilities. Campers enjoy customizing projects and using lots of creativity.

Some projects may include a Music Video, an Animated Film, A News Report, a Dance Party, An Asteroids Arcade Game with levels and scoring, A History Quiz Show, A Language Learning Game, A By using Scratch, campers are able to work with a more simplified programming language (compared to other programming languages) to gain an understanding of programming logic and concepts. For campers who want to dive deeper into computer programming, this is a great place to start! Adding to the fun, campers can share projects easily with family and friends by creating their own links!

Each camper will leave camp with at least two projects!

This camp is great for one week or multiple weeks!

Campers utilize their own creativity, learn and improve their skills, and work individually or collaboratively (on our own private servers) in the same virtual world at this awesome and unique computer camp! Our own servers allow campers to work together on the same projects, creating fun and dynamic group interaction!

Using Minecraft as a learning tool, campers utilize various Minecraft skills to customize and create their own legendary worlds! Campers learn how to customize their own landscapes and explore the benefits and challenges of various biomes. Campers also use an inventory of blocks and various resources to literally “mine” and “craft” projects like skyscrapers & modern cities, giant tree houses, sports arenas, tunnel ways, haunted houses, sustainable farm systems, medieval & renaissance villages, alien colonies, secret underground cities, entire amusement parks, functional town market, mountain communities, and much more! Campers may also construct famous buildings, landmarks, and structures like the Liberty Bell, White House, Gateway Arch, Taj Mahal, Beijing National Stadium, Sydney Opera House, Space Needle, Golden Gate Bridge, Palace of Versaille, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and/or structures of their own choosing!

*Projects can include the construction of a train system, roller coaster, and trapdoor/tunnel. Campers can also create worlds that encompass gameplay and a storyline. Campers may choose to work with other campers or on their own, but group participation is highly encouraged.

*This camp is open to campers who are beginners and intermediates at Minecraft. Campers are grouped based upon age and ability. Group requests can be made prior to camp.

*Campers are required to arrive with their own Minecraft™ account for a PC. If your child does not have a Minecraft™ account, it can be purchased at Minecraft.net. Once this account is purchased, campers have access to their account for use throughout the year. Campers should bring a USB flash drive on their last day of camp so that they can copy their project(s) onto the flash drive for use at home.

Campers may register for one week or multiple weeks, as projects vary from week to week.

*This camp is not affiliated with Minecraft.net, Mojang, AB., and/or Microsoft.
*The functionality of our servers for multi-player use is dependent upon Internet connectivity. At each location, our servers have successfully undergone testing prior to the summer. Although rare, it is possible that external factors may cause an interruption in connectivity during camp. If this occurs, campers will collaborate on projects in single player mode and/or engage in other Minecraft™ learning experiences while connectivity is being restored. Rest assured, there are many “off computer” Minecraft™ activities that supplement learning and are super fun!

Set in the format of a writing workshop, campers will have the entire week to focus on developing and writing his/her own fictional short story. Before writing, campers will have the opportunity to read and discuss popular short stories, and share inspirational topics and story ideas with the group.

So what should you write about? To avoid “writer’s block,” we will have lots of story prompts (ideas) for you to work with, or which can serve to inspire you. You can also come to camp with ideas already in mind.

Once campers have their short story ideas, pre-writing will continue by researching the topic, outlining the story, setting the scenes in detail, and developing the characters.

Campers will move at their own pace through this process, and once ready, will develop a rough draft. Scheduled workshops will be held at camp each day for readings and constructive suggestions, and the instructor is available to guide campers on their writing all week.

After lots of writing, workshopping, and revising, campers will have a short story piece that they can be proud of (and even continue to work on at home)!

Welcome to the amazing world of programming with Scratch, where campers gain great experience with computer science!

Campers use Scratch, a program created by the MIT Media Lab, to create, program, and share projects. Campers code from the backend to create character actions and interactions, in addition to establishing entire interactive adventures and stories.

Scratch uses a programming language that is in easy to understand English and created for its own platform. By moving and combining blocks of code, campers develop their own programs to create super cool animation projects. Campers can also make their animations interactive by including instructions, designing their character’s costumes, adding unique background images and sounds, programming their “sprites” (the objects that perform the actions in the project) to dance, sing, and talk, in addition to other endless possibilities. Campers enjoy customizing projects and using lots of creativity.

Some projects may include a Music Video, an Animated Film, A News Report, a Dance Party, An Asteroids Arcade Game with levels and scoring, A History Quiz Show, A Language Learning Game, A By using Scratch, campers are able to work with a more simplified programming language (compared to other programming languages) to gain an understanding of programming logic and concepts. For campers who want to dive deeper into computer programming, this is a great place to start! Adding to the fun, campers can share projects easily with family and friends by creating their own links!

Each camper will leave camp with at least two projects!

CO-ED GRADES 5–9

Design with a focus on digital design and wearable technology! At Digital Fashion Design camp, campers utilize Adobe Illustrator to design a personalized tote bag and a summer dress or fall jacket! In addition, campers utilize digital design to strategically place pockets, secret compartments, and passageways for phones, iPads, iPods, earphone buds/wires and more!

Once the design work is complete, campers print their designs out for use when constructing each project. Campers learn and use a sewing machine to construct their projects, and have a wide variety of fabric options to choose from! Campers may also utilize some hand sewing to refine their projects.

Campers begin with a personalized tote bag for the beach, grocery store, gym, or just a fashionable outing with friends. Campers design and construct the bag, and leave room to personalize it with their initials, name, or designer name. With such a sizable bag, a secret compartment will be developed to store various technology devices!

After the tote bag is complete, campers move on to creating either a summer dress or a fall jacket! Campers will learn about the latest trends and discuss project ideas for inspiration before designing. Once campers have their vision, it’s on to digital design, and then to construction of their summer dress or fall jacket!

Once complete, campers will choreograph and prepare for a Friday fashion show around 2:45pm (parents, siblings, and grandparents are invited!)

All sewing machines and materials are provided. Please bring a USB to download all design files on Friday.

*Campers are welcome to bring in measurements of their tech devices (sufficient measurements include height, width, length, weight) or the actual devices themselves, only for the use of designing their projects. If bringing in actual tech devices, the devices should be labeled with the camper’s name. As a reminder, the camp is not responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen property.
