Requirements: 

  • Each student must have their own Minecraft account for the PC or Mac. (versions on tablets, game systems and phones are not compatible).  Go to https://minecraft.net/ .
  • Visit our sample server to verify you can get on: cesample.mcph.co
  • Download and set up Mumble. This is a voice chat program that all students are required to use during the events.
  • Students should have basic knowledge of how to play the Minecraft PC/Mac version. If your children know how to make a house, a bed, and iron tools, they're ready!
