Minecraft for Parents

On Friday, the 20th of March we will be holding another Minecraft for Parents session! These sessions are aimed at parents/caregivers who couldn't tame a horse if they tried! Those attending will learn the basics of Minecraft leading up to your "first night" of survival. The session will run for approximately an hour, between 5:30 - 6:30 pm. 

Please note: this session is focused on learning how to play Minecraft. If you have no interest in playing the game but have other questions regarding Minecraft, feel free to contact Andrew.

Registrations are required! See here for more information.
