Camp Information

Ridgewood Community High School
Room 160 Collaboration Center
7500 W Montrose Ave, Norridge, IL 60706

Dates and times
July 29 through August 2
9:00am to 12:30pm
Ages 10 to 14

Please drop off or pickup participants at the front of the school within 15 minutes before or after camp. A participant’s legal guardian will need to confirm all paperwork and permissions on the first day, and may waive or reassign pickup conditions (to friends, siblings, allow participants to bike home, etc) at that time. Your participant must be able to join for at least Monday through Thursday of the camp!

This camp is about science and learning, not just Minecraft. Make sure your child understands this – we won’t have any player-vs-player (PvP violent play, big game servers like Mineplex or Bedwars). We provide Minecraft accounts and computers for all students and everything is free!
