Minecraft: Explore, build, and play! Minecraft is one of the hottest games currently on the market because of two major factors: freedom and creativity. The game is whatever you want it to be; it could be a swampy bog or a dark forest or even an underwater fortress! The limits of Minecraft are only as far as your imagination. Minecraft also has a huge world to explore where you could get lost for hours just trying to find items and new locations.
Fencing: Our exclusive Stanford Athletics partnership offers a uniquely blended experience. Spend half the day in the iD Tech Camps lab learning level design for video games with Minecraft and the other half learning fencing from Stanford coaches. Learn the elegant sport of Fencing from staff who will teach you to thrust, parry, and lunge like the musketeers. All equipment is provided.
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.
