Why should my child come to this event ?

So you’ve got a little Minecrafter at home… or two ! And they would love nothing more than spend the whole day glued to the television screen playing Minecraft all day long.

I am been running gaming events for over 14 years and thought I would run an event that is a cheap day out for the kids, So that is why I came up with the Minecraft School Holiday event.

Little Minecrafters can explore in a safe controlled environment. They will also create cool stuff in the physical and digital worlds,

The only is $30, for 6 hours entertainment. There is no hidden costs, kids don’t need to bring ANYTHING (We provide all the minecraft consoles /controllers and screens). They only need there own LUNCH.

We ensure that we balance play and screentime. There are other activities included to get them away from the screen, and encourage them to participate with prizes.

The MINECRAFT event is designed to do the following :

* develop social and communication skills

* encourage collaboration and inclusion

* engage kids in group problem solving environments

* be a lot of fun !

Parents are more than welcome to stay and have a look for free.

Ping Zero staff will ensure that there day is balanced, between virtual and real life. We also have a few surprises for the children to keep them entertained throughout the day.

Whereabouts will this event be ?

The Ping Zero Minecraft School Holiday program operates out of the North Shore Events Centre (NSEC) in Wairau Valley on the North Shore.

Will be using the Kings Lounge upstairs. There is Wheelchair Access to the venue.
