AutismBC Socials: Introduction to Minecraft
August 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
AutismBC Socials offer community members with common interests and hobbies a way to connect openly and safely online.
Our Computer-based Introduction to Minecraft hosted by Elysium is an inclusive space for Minecraft enthusiasts to come together and play! Our mission is to inspire connection through sharing tips, tricks, and playing together.
How: We bring you our monthly Minecraft Socials in partnership with Elysium, a non-profit building a Minecraft server community for neurodivergent kids! Come meet and play with other kids who love Minecraft over a moderated Zoom video call and on the private, white-listed server.
When: August 29, 2023 from 4:00 – 5:00pm
Who: If you’ve been playing Minecraft for less than a year or if you’ve never played Minecraft before — this is the right group for you. The Elysium Minecraft server is a whitelisted supportive and inclusive environment. It is available any time outside the monthly event for unstructured, safe play and social connection. This AutismBC Social Minecraft Club is administered by Michael & Serene, program volunteers with the Elysium team.
While activities may range from month-to-month, we will be playing on Elysium’s modded RPG survival world.
We will focus on teaching and practicing the fundamentals of the game, including:
- Building any structure your heart desires
- Exploring a survival world
- Farming and taming pets
- Buy, sell and trade resources from shopkeepers, villagers and other players
- Participate in group challenges like build battles & mini games while learning structured team play
Cost: Free, membership is required to participate in the event.
