Does this sound like your life?
Is your child OBSESSED with Minecraft and technology? Are they constantly watching YouTube videos about the game? Are you left more confused even after they try to explain it all to you?
No worries, we're here for you with our Minecraft Animation workshop. This is the activity your OBSESSED Minecrafter has been looking for.

We will be talking and learning about Minecraft, YouTube, animation, and much more in this action-packed 3-hour workshop!

Questions and Answers
Do you allow age exceptions?
Learn Create Build isn't about strict age requirements. Every child can be at a different level and we don't want to exclude children from becoming part of a camp they want to attend. However, we do outline age guidelines on all of our camps. These are guidelines and not rules. If you are wondering if your child an handle a particular camp please contact us at email@example.com to get a better idea of what to expect at camp. Also, on each camp page, there is a requirements section that describes what camp participants should be able to do independently. Use this as a guide to see if your child has the skills necessary to complete the tasks of the camp her or she is interested in.
Do you offer financial aid or scholarships?
Unfortunately, at the time there is no financial aid or scholarship opportunities available through Learn Create Build. Depending on location and camp, we will occasionally have universities and nonprofit organizations offer scholarships to their local communities. If this is made available to us we will post these opportunities to our mailing list.
What is your cancellation/refund policy?
You can learn more about our policy by checking out the cancellation/refund policy page here.
When is the last day to register for a camp?
Learn Create Build will allow students to join a camp up until the day before the start of a camp. However, waiting until the last day can be risky as most camps will fill up. If a camp is sold out, there is no guarantee more spots will be open.
