The New York Society of Play’s Minecraft workshops encourage kids to work together to build incredible projects. Join a new group and explore our server, or bring friends together in a private adventure led by our Minecraft experts.


If you can dream it, you can build it! The sky is the limit!

Students will use the popular Minecraft program to collaborate, create, and design on our safe, private Minecraft servers. Not only will your child’s creations be safe; your child will be, as well!

Minecraft promotes skills like mathematical literacy (especially geometry), project planning, and resource management.

Gather your friends for a one-of-a-kind Minecraft adventure! Kids will log on to their own personalized server where they create amazing structures, raise animals, or test their survival skills against Creepers and other dastardly beasts.

Our private groups enable kids to work consistently on the same projects week over week, which allows for more sophisticated planning and collaboration. Private groups take place on weekdays between 3-7pm and weekends between 10am-5pm.
