Camp Details

Spring and Summer camps will be offered in one of two formats: virtual half-days and MCP studio full-days with precautions to ensure safety.  Virtual camps will take place in one of 3 virtual classrooms and will be limited to 4 students.  In person, we are  limiting enrollment to 5, and asking campers to bring their own snack and lunch.  Computers will be distanced and assigned for the week and students must wear masks except when eating.  Cost ranges from $125 - $350 depending on format and length.

Please reach out with questions 512-593-2729 or hello@mycodingplace.com.

Location: All camps will take place at the MCP Studio at 3616 Far West Blvd in Austin, TX or in Virtual classrooms.  

Cancellation Policy: Full payment is required to reserve your child's seat.  A 50% refund is available if cancelling before the first day.  Cancellations or changes on or after the first day of camp are not eligible for a refund but credit can be applied to future programs.

We may cancel camps that do not meet the minimum enrollment of 3 students.  In that case, we would move students to a similar camp, or a full refund will be offered.  Because of the fluid heath situation, we appreciate your patience and flexibility.

Age: Age recommendations are established due to typing skills and prior exposure to relevant topics that will make the experience positive.  All ages above the minimum are welcome, and students will be grouped accordingly.  You can request enrollment if your child does not meet the minimum to be automatically admitted.

Minecraft Mania (Lua)

By learning how to program computers in ComputerCraft, students gain extra control over their Minecraft worlds and can create new and exciting things.  ComputerCraft is a modification for Minecraft that’s all about computer programming. It allows students to build in-game Computers and Turtle Robots, writing programs for Minecraft using the Lua programming language. 

 

This mod allows you to build fully-functioning computers inside your Minecraft world, then use those computers much like you use a real computer. Students can play games and program the robots to carry out actions, such as mining, farming, crafting and protecting them against monsters, while learning basic programming concepts such as loops, variables, and conditional statements.  This class requires the purchase of Minecraft Java edition on a PC or Mac.  ComputerCraft should be downloaded with instructions sent the day before the class starts.

Students will not only build some amazing mods, but they will also learn how to work with Java, the same programming language that Minecraft uses.

Math In Action

“How long will it take me to fly to Japan?” “How many possible chess moves are there?” “How does Mario jump on Goombas’ heads?” Welcome to Math in Action, where we seek to answer these questions and many more! What separates Math in Action from your typical math class is we are all about demonstration! Instead of worksheets and tests, we utilize projects and experiments to teach math concepts in a fun and engaging way. Topics covered will range from Pre-Algebra to the introduction of basic Trigonometry. By the end of the program, students will have a much deeper understanding of math and be able to apply to real-world problems and computer programming. Please join us as we deepen our understanding of the world around us through math!
