creative computing classes Skerries presents:

💥The 2021 cccSkerries Online Summer Camps💥

Run by Sabine McKenna, cccSkerries.

All camps will be held online, using Zoom

A choice of Minecraft Camps awaits your 8 to 16-year-olds

Book a space on a Skerries-based online Minecraft camp now!

The best of both worlds… from the comfort of your own home, with people in your own area.

Small, friendly groups (no more than 12) led by Sabine McKenna, digital educator with years of experience.

Since 2020, all cccSkerries classes are fully online, and it turns out that this has a number of huge advantages: 

  • No need to drive anyone anywhere – so if you’re living a bit outside Skerries, or are working from home or otherwise not available to taxi your budding computer whizz to and from camp, that’s a big thing.
  • Side effect: Being familiar with video conferencing! The classes happen via Zoom, so the kids pick up how to interact in virtual meetings as well.
  • Great learning. Over the last year I’ve noticed that the focus level during the virtual classes is even higher than in real life. Participants seem to really get ‘into the zone’ and move on faster. 
  • Easier cooperation. Breakout rooms help collaboration, and shared screens allow commenting on other people’s work
  • It’s fun, too. Many parents have told me that their daughters and sons hate having to miss the weekly session if they can’t make it for any reason. That speaks for itself!

And what are the camps this year? A choice of two Minecraft camps!

  • Mon 26 Jul – Fri 30 July Summer Minecraft Club: Junior.
  • Mon 9 August – Fr 13 August Summer Minecraft Club: Senior

All camps will be held online, using Zoom

Camps run from Monday to Friday, 3 p.m. to 4.30 p.m.

For the duration of the camp, the participants and Sabine will be in a Zoom meeting.

All participants need is a Zoom-able laptop (send an email to sabine@cccskerries.com if you’re not sure, and we’ll arrange a one-on-one Zoom meeting to check it out) and access to the internet and a Web browser.

Groups are kept small for individual attention – the maximum number per camp will be 12. Cost: €100 per camp.

Booking open now on cccSkerries.com/camps!
