At iD, balance is very important. Our tech camps are fun and engaging, and completely unlike school. We want you to develop genuine passion for STEM subjects, and keep coming back year after year. If it’s not fun—and if you don’t learn a lot—we know you won’t return. You can expect roughly 5 hours a day of instruction, with plenty of time for supervised breaks, social time, outdoor play, optional sports, video games, and other creative techtivities. Many clients describe the total iD experience as “magical” and “unlike anything else.” We work hard to make the experience unique, memorable, and valuable.
