Last year, Game Asylum partnered up with Bingamens in Kitchener Ontario to give kids the Ultimate Minecraft Camp experience.
While it was an extremely successful summer for us, we have taken the experiences and added even more to the camp. This year will be bigger, better, and even MORE blocky for campers and counselors alike.
We are very aware of the fact that there will be kids returning for a second year of Minecraft camp, and because of this, we have all new programming in store for campers. This way, both new and repeat campers will have an amazing and brand new experience in the Game Asylum trailer. Much like last year, each day of the week will be devoted to a specific mode of play. Last year we found kids to have preference – survival or creative. The kids who initially didn’t like survival ended up loving it by the end of the survival days, and the kids who had never ever touched creative mode wouldn’t leave it alone!
This camp is NOT about sitting in the trailer and playing Minecraft. The kids can do that at home.
Specific days are devoted to specific themes. We keep the themes a surprise for the kids, so that they come to camp each day with an open mind. Kids are always surprised when we tell them what they will be doing in a day, and the ultimate goal is to teach them new things. Things that they can go home and try themselves or impress their friends with. New skills in game and ways in which to build the skills that they already have. Pushing them out of their virtual comfort zones last year was all part of the camp experience and kids who were stronger in certain skills taught and helped those who maybe weren’t as experienced. Teamwork and good sportsmanship are what Game Asylum is all about, and Minecraft Camp is no exception.
This summer is going to be a busy one for all of us at Game Asylum and Minecraft Camp is a great way to get in on the action!
