- 1-month Minecraft Server Access

- 1-month FREE Community Access, including:

- Inspiring sessions with role models

- Book and movie nights and creative workshops

How sessions work

Minecraft camps runs Tuesday to Thursday. Each day you can:

  • Join your Minecraft Camp session from 1-4pm

  • Join a free Uncommon community session 4-5pm

  • Continue building and exploring in our Minecraft server, open 8am-8pm during camp

All our sessions are run on Zoom, with participants welcome to have cameras off or on, to watch, message or talk.

We’ll spend the duration of camp building a project of our choice, or helping build a group project. Projects can be 100% creative builds, or can utilise redstone code. All sessions will be guided by our chief builder Ollie. During session, Ollie will guide participants, teach new technical skills, narrate the group's successes, encourage co-operation and give hands-on technical support. Participants can also DM (direct message) session leaders if they need one-on-one help.

Day 1: We’ll start by exploring what projects we want to build. We’ll make a plan of how to build them, and start building. We’ll also explore a technical skill relevant to our projects, so we learn new ways to build.

Day 2: We’ll start by visiting each others builds and see how everyone’s getting on! We’ll learn another technical skill, and we can either spend all session building, or to mix things up you can head out on an adventure into PVP world.

Day 3: Ollie will focus on giving everyone a helping hand finishing off their builds. These will then be protected in the Uncommon server for everyone to enjoy! We’ll then spend the second half of session exploring or trying out everyone’s finished projects!

After Camp ends: You’ll have access to the Uncommon Minecraft server for 1 month. For an extra £40, you can also join our weekly Minecraft socials to stay in touch with your new Minecraft buddies.

What families say

"The Uncommon Team do a phenomenal job of keeping the sessions fun, adapting to the varying needs (and whims!) of the participants and providing just the right level of support." 


"I didn’t really know what to expect but it was lovely hearing J laughing and talking to others" 


"The environment Uncommon creates seems to make all the kids feel like a bonded group really quickly and they are keen to help and support one another as a result. It is so wonderful to see, especially as many of our kids probably struggle with similar peer interactions day to day. Thanks Uncommon Team!" 


"I wasn’t sure if my daughter would engage or would enjoy it and she did both, so that was very positive!" 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
