Minecraft is MUCH more than just a game! In this camp, we’ll challenge your child to build their own interactive 3D world. Not only will they learn how to make weapons and characters, but they’ll also learn how to visualize physics and chemistry along the way!
With Minecraft, you can simulate magnets, circuits, a gladiator and more! Despite being a game, Minecraft is a place with absolute creative freedom. We’ll also pair up Minecraft with MakeCode, where kids can write programs to automate the construction of structures. What’s more? Kids will build circuits and game contraptions for their friends to explore!
In this interactive camp, we’ll have lots of fun with storytelling, science, design and structures.
*Recommended age 6+
"Eloise attended the Multi-Activity camp and had a fantastic time. She is at Local school in SG and after mixing with the international school crowd I could see her grow in confidence and she was more independent after camp. She can't wait for the next holiday!"

These details apply to all camps.
All camps operate within the framework provided by the CHP and the health and safety procedures in place at Stamford American School guided by the EDB.
In addition to this, Camp Asia works closely with the operations teams at our host venue Stamford to maintain the integrity of the schools' measures during term time.
Due to COVID-19 requirements, we ask caregivers who are dropping off children not to enter the campus. For parents of younger children who are first-time campers, we will arrange staggered drop-off times to allow for a smooth first day.
We have a full-time nurse on site for every camp week operating from the schools' health center. Our nurses are there to administer medication, first aid and support with all COVID-19 reporting, as needed. The nurse is available Monday morning to collect any medications and speak to parents before camp starts. Our Camp Asia team members are all first-aid trained.
We offer a highly convenient, free shuttle bus service from Yau Ma Tei and Ho Man Tin MTR stations. We will send sign-up details to you after your camp registration is complete.
