Action-Packed Days

Check-In

Our friendly and experienced staff will be waiting to greet you at camp. Look out for our Camp Manager in an orange Code Camp t-shirt, they’re also a qualified teacher and first aid trained. Once you’ve signed in your child, it’s time to say goodbye to let your kids make new friends and then embark on their coding adventure!

You can drop off between 9:00 and 9:30 am, and pick-up between 3:30 and 3:45pm. Extended hours are available at certain locations.

Day One

Let the construction commence

Let’s start at the very beginning to understand engineering fundamentals and how we will approach building our rollercoasters.

Then we will design and build a Boarding Station before moving onto redstone elements to create a Tunnel of Light, essential for every rollercoaster ride!

Kids will also create their redstone loops and build switches into the structure.

Day Two

Be commanding!

Our rollercoaster needs plenty of extra thrills so we'll program a scintillating Tower of Terror into our game.

Then kids will learn all about Command Blocks and how to integrate them into the rollercoaster build.

Plus, we'll start auto-generating Minecraft rollercoaster tracks. It's really starting to take shape now!

Day Three

Ready to roll!

On the final day of camp kids will create a cool Bow and Arrow target game using redstone targets.

Then it's time to make some finishing touches on our rollercoasters and showcase them to our classmates.

Camp wraps with a ceremony to celebrate our achievements as graduate Minecraft Engineers!

FAQs

What is the structure of a day at camp?

Each day is divided into 1.5 - 2 hour sessions of fun, creative learning with three breaks for crunch & sip, recess and lunch so the kids can have outside play (weather allowing).

What time is drop off and pick-up time?

Drop-off is from 9:00-9:30 am and pick-up is 3:30-3:45pm. At selected venues we offer extend hours from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm - this availability will be visible at the booking page.

Does my child need to bring a device?

Minecraft Engineers requires students to bring their own laptop or tablet to camp each day. A keyboard and a mouse are strongly recommended if supplying a tablet. 

What should I pack in my child's bag each day?

We recommend bringing a hat, water bottle, sunscreen and a nut-free packed crunch and sip, recess, and lunch.

How many kids are in each class?

We have some of the best student-teacher ratios to ensure every child has a positive experience. Most of our classes are capped at 28 students with a 1:8 teacher-student ratio.

Do they have to have prior experience?

Most of our camps are suitable for absolute beginners. Ignite requires a basic understanding of drag & drop coding, while kids attending Blast 3D and Web Builders need to be proficient at line coding.

Can I stay with my child?

Our camps are well staffed and we do not have parents stay for the day. If there is a particular reason that you’d like to attend, please get in contact with us to discuss.

Do you cater for special needs?

Whilst we do not run programs specifically designed to cater for students with special needs, our aim is to be as inclusive as possible. If your child attends a mainstream school and is comfortable in a classroom environment, they are welcome to attend. We will ask about their needs at enrolment. We are unable to provide 1:1 support, however if your child has a support worker they may attend with them. Please contact us to discuss your child’s individual needs.

My child is younger than the specified age, can they attend? Can my younger child attend with an older sibling?

If a child is within 3 months of the recommended age, for most of our programs it is up to the parent to determine if the child is capable. Our camps are structured for the specified age range and with 1:8 ratios, so one on one support for a younger child will not be available. Unless the child is displaying maturity levels and academic capabilities of an older child, we don’t recommend it however feel free to contact us at hello@codecamp.com.au to discuss what's suitable for your child.

Do you offer a sibling discount?

When you enrol your child, you will receive a referral code which can be used to save $20 off your sibling booking.
