Minecraft EDMOtopia

Grades: 3-4

All Programs

Learn about and practice digital citizenship in the most fun way imaginable: building a virtual Minecraft community! EDMOtopia takes place on EDMO’s multiplayer Minecraft server, available only to EDMO campers. Each week, we’ll feature a different community building challenge for campers to collaboratively construct through 3D modeling and spatial reasoning. Campers will tackle challenges like creating “blueprints,” organizing roles, plotting out construction zones, and managing time. Each day campers will also engage in digital citizenship and SEL activities centering on concepts like respect, empathy, collaboration, and digital etiquette.

21st Century & SEL Skill Focus: Collaboration, Communication, Digital Citizenship, Creativity. Learn more about other skills we build through The EDMO Method®.

Take a look at your camper's daily schedule below, under sample projects!

Sample Projects

Project Blueprints

Project Blueprints

Keeping with the week’s theme, campers will think about what they want to build within their plot. They will then make a blueprint showing how they will complete their project.

Campers will utilize math concepts such as perimeter, area and volume, as well as SEL concepts like organization and critical thinking as they plan out their project’s construction.

Unlimited Building

Unlimited Building

In Creative Mode, campers will have unlimited access to all blocks in Minecraft. They will also be able to fly to make building even easier! This will allow campers to complete the biggest of projects, limited only by their imagination and coordination.

Campers will practice coordination, communication, goal-setting, and teamwork to construct their design.

Project Showcase

Project Showcase

At the end of the session, campers will share what they worked on during the course of the week.

Campers will learn to present what they built to others and how to give constructive feedback.

Sample Schedule

  • A Day in the Life...

Some kids thrive on routines and harmony. Others not so much. Good news! We’ve found the secret recipe that works for all EDMO campers!

Prime & Max 1st Half Day Schedule

Check In
9:30 AM (PST)

To ensure your child’s safety and privacy, we have a moderated check-in process that takes approximately 10-15 minutes. As children log in, they’ll be greeted and asked their name and where they’re from!

Opening Rally
9:40 AM (PST)

You never know what surprises await when staff and kids get together. At rally, we’ll share songs, skits, jokes, and ridiculous contests. We might even dress up!

Enrichment 1
9:50 AM (PST)

During enrichment stations, campers really get into the weekly theme and curriculum. Campers are introduced to the weekly subject and concepts, learn new skills and facts, and design, create and build daily and/or weekly projects.

Break
10:50 AM (PST)

Everybody needs a break now and then. This the perfect time for campers to stretch, go the restroom or grab a quick snack before they wind up their morning or afternoon of camp.

Rec 1
11:05 AM (PST)

Just because we’re online doesn’t mean that campers can’t get some physical exercise as well. During our Rec periods, campers will get up and moving with stretching, yoga, jump roping, silly dance moves, and more!

Team Time
11:20 AM (PST)

In Team Time, we focus on team building and community. We get to know our teammates names, meet our Kimochis’ friends and create group names and cheers. We also take time to strengthen our SEL skills and focus on the EDMO RECIPE of Responsibility, Empathy, Collaboration, Initiative, Problem Solving, and Emotion Management. Every day is different and we may do this through literature, various methods of meditation, group activities and/or positive vibes. We work on being curious, courageous and kind HUMANS.

Closing Rally

Whether morning or afternoon, our closing rally ends the day in an upbeat way. This gives staff a chance to wrap up the day, make announcements for the days to follow and give SNAPS!

We know, it’s hard to leave behind all that camp fun. Don’t worry, we’ll all be coming back again tomorrow.
