MINECRAFT CREATE  

In Storytelling and Moviemaking in Minecraft®, campers will gain an understanding of the digital modeling processes and storytelling as they build scenes in Minecraft® and produce stories in their digital world. Introduce students to video recording, editing and audio as they produce their final stories as short movies.

MINECRAFT MODDING  

In Designing Modifications with Minecraft®, campers will learn how to manipulate and master Minecraft® by making their own mods . Using basic block-based coding, Ninjas will learn procedures, conditionals, and variables. They will create 2D and 3D textures for use in their Minecraft® world, along with their very own custom content, including weapons, armor and even enemies!

STOP MOTION ANIMATION    

During the Stop Motion Animation camp, Ninjas will experiment with video production through a variety of mediums including Claymation, LEGO® Minifigures, pipe cleaner creatures and much more! They will capture images frame-by-frame and produce videos in a rapid prototyping style. Campers will work independently on their videos as well as collaborate in teams during the entire design process.  

SCRATCH GAME CODING 

Code Your Own Arcade from Scratch allows Ninjas to explore different programming concepts as they create various games. Each game focuses on a different type of  programming concept and provides campers withtools to use in their own games. They’ll have a blast every step of the way. At the end of the week they will show off the games they created!

STORY TELLING IN SCRATCH 

Storytelling with Scratch, campers will learn how to express themselves and let their creativity shine through code! Campers will work together to have fun crafting silly, scary and themed stories in Scratch, a kid-friendly, visual programming language. Each team's imaginative stories will then be shared to everyone as a group. Through this experience, campers will level-up their knowledge of basic coding concepts as well as their storytelling abilities.

EPIC CODING AND MAKER CAMP

Join our ECMC Camp to explore all Code Ninjas has to offer. Each week different topics will be introduced including Python, Stop Motion Animation, 3d design and printing, Microbit, Roblox, Minecraft, drones and Robotics.   

In addition, your camper will have access to our world class curriculum and earn Code Ninjas Belts throughout the summer.  Join this space limited camp for 1 week or all summer long! Half or Full Day. LENEXA and LEAWOOD only.

GIRL POWER WEEK

Code Ninjas camps just for girls!   These camps will encourage girls to use their creativity and allow them to participate in new skills promoting problem-solving and critical thinking. Girls will have a blast as they learn to code, gain confidence, and make new friends!  No experience necessary.

AGES 7-14

ROBLOX DEVELOPER

In Potential UNLOCKED: Become a Roblox Developer, campers learn the basics of game building and creative development in Roblox. Campers will use Roblox to create much more than just a game! Open to all levels of experience, this camp will teach ninjas how to plan, design and build their own 3D world.

ROBLOX SCRIPTERS      

During Hackers Wanted: Uncover the Code in Roblox, campers learn fundamentals of coding and dig into the game making side of Roblox to move from being a player to becoming a developer. Using the Lua programming language, Ninjas will create their own timed, sudden-death Roblox game along with an interactive obstacle course game. At the end of camp, Ninjas will showcase their game, play their peers' games and then publish their games.

MAKER CAMP

At A Bit of Micro:Bit Magic, campers will learn to plan, tinker and get physical with the BBC Micro:Bit microcontroller. Campers can expect to explore programming in an exciting new programming language released specifically for the new version of the Micro:Bit called Microblocks. The new Micro:Bit will allow students to build a variety of exciting and challenging projects and learn how to test sound and music!   

BECOME A YOUTUBER!

Campers will learn the basics of YouTube and design a custom video thumbnail for their own personalized YouTube video tutorial. The Become a YouTuber! camp advances existing Scratch, Roblox or MakeCode skills as campers create a more complex game that requires additional loops, inputs and movements. Campers will then complete the final step to become a vlogger by uploading a video tutorial for their Scratch game.

AGES 5-7

JR - GAME DEVELOPER 

Code Your Own Arcade from ScratchJr, JR Ninjas will build a foundation of basic coding concepts by creating various ScratchJr games - such as Space Jam, Secret Agent and Maze Olympics. By remixing these games as their own, Ninjas will learn game design concepts, including how to make their own backgrounds and characters, create and hide objects and code arrow keys!  

JR - MAKER CAMP

At Mini Makers with Microcontrollers camp, campers will explore the magical world of physical computing with a tiny microcontroller called the BBC Micro:Bit. Campers will connect the Micro:Bit to household items such as play dough, cardboard, LED lights and aluminum foil to make code come to life in the physical world. With the assistance of Code Senseis, campers will code in Scratch, learn basic circuitry as well as the fundamentals of programming the built-in sensors of the microcontroller.
