Craftin’ Commenced!

Our Crafters are off to a great start!  We’ve plopped them into last year’s server, but moved spawn far from the wreckage of last year’s final hour.

The Crafters are exploring the world, and one camper is building traders with the Custom NPCs mod.

Counselor Bryson (TBCS ’16) has cooked up another epic adventure for the Crafters, which we’ll delve into after mid-morning break.





Camp Starts Today!

Minecraft Camp 2018 starts today at 9 AM!  We’re super excited for another year of craftin’!  Woo-hoo!

Minecraft Camp 2018 Starts Monday!

TBCS‘s Minecraft Camp 2018 starts this Monday, June 11, at 9 AM!

Camp runs Monday, June 11 through Thursday, June 14, from 9 AM to 12 PM.  Campers should bring a light snack each day.

What kinds of crazy adventures will we have this year?  Building a pyramid?  Chopping down a forest?  Setting sail in search of new lands to craft?  Who knows!

Finally—there will be LEGOs!

See you Monday, Crafters!


Minecraft Camp 2017 – The End of an Era

It was a really fun week with our Crafters.  They went on epic quests, fought big baddies (sometimes of their own design), and built amazing structures.  We hope to see our Crafters back next year–and have new Crafters join us!

Have a great summer–and Happy Crafting!

Going out with a Bang…

We had a great camp this year, with lots of modding, building, and–of course–crafting.

The camp ended with a one-two punch of awesome:

1.) Crafter Boyd created the insidious “Shadow,” a malevolent force of pure evil.  The students defeated this (very, very difficult) NPC after a long fight, and received whatever they requested as a reward (within reason; “infinite emeralds” was, unfortunately, impossible to fulfill).

2.) After giving the students ten minutes of PVP action–they’d been begging for it all week–Counselor Bryson (“Mr. Willis” to the Crafters) created a MASSIVE TNT block to end the game with a bang.  The explosion was so huge, it crashed the server!  No worries, though–Mr. Cook saved the game map right before the carnage.  Maybe next year’s Campers can rebuild?

Some major destruction to end camp.  But from Chaos comes Order.


Battle of Creepzilla

As we type this post, Crafter Boyd is describing the big bad boss he created, “Shadow.”  The students have been playing around with the Custom NPCs mod (as well as a few others) today, and Crafter Boyd has cooked up an epic quest (pictures to come).

This morning, crafters fought Creepzilla, who terrorized Seyda Neen (after Creepzilla was slain, Seyda Neen exploded–d’oh!).

What a Creep(er)
