STATEMENT OF CONSENT / ARBITRATION CLAUSE

By authorizing the participant to attend iD Tech programs, the parent/guardian must agree to the statement of consent and the participant code of conduct. The information we collect is CONFIDENTIAL and is used to aid our staff, the Camp Director and Instructors in assessing crucial information regarding the participant.

Upon registration, you will need to submit information to iD Tech in My Account about the participant including allergies, illnesses, medications, dietary restrictions, immunizations, emergency contact information, gender and date of birth. We ask for a Primary Contact Person in case of emergency (in addition to a Secondary Contact Person) and information concerning these parties—such as name of contacts, phone numbers, email, and address. This information is to be filled out by the Parent/Guardian. If you have any questions, please contact our Client Services Department at 1-888-709-TECH (8324), or 1-408-871-2227, option 1.

Participants will only be admitted to the iD Tech Programs with a named physician. We ask for the physician’s name, along with the physician’s contact information. Additionally, it is required that you provide the medical insurance carrier and the policy number or social security number of the participant. If the participant is not covered under a health insurance plan, or if you do not wish to provide iD Tech with your medical insurance information, you agree to accept all financial liability should your child become injured while in the care of iD Tech, and release and indemnify iD Tech from any such financial responsibility.

If your participant should need to be restricted from any activity, you will be asked to inform us with the specifics. You further certify that he/she is in good health and able to participate in the program activities. You authorize the camp staff to attend to health problems or injuries your son/daughter/ward may incur while attending camp. You acknowledge that you are responsible for medical expenses due to your son/daughter/ward’s illness or injury.

You will also be asked to identify any medical condition or history that would require special attention. You will need to certify that the named participant is physically able to participate in all activities, including sports, games, computer instruction, and that you know of no restrictions, physical impairments, or any other factors, which in any manner may limit his/her participation in such a program.

ALLERGIES/DRUG REACTIONS and Management of Reactions including NUTS. You will be asked to chronicle any known allergies. You will be asked if the participant is bringing an EPIPEN to camp. If so, you will be asked to verify the prescription and bring 2 (two) EPIPENS to camp; one for camp staff and one for your participant to carry on their person. We cannot admit your participant into camp without 2 (two) EPIPENS; this is for your child’s safety. You may be asked for immunization information. You will need to verify that the health history you are providing is correct and complete, and that the participant has permission to engage in all camp activities except as noted. Participants will need to self-administer injections under observation of our staff.

You will be asked to enter all known illnesses or conditions which the participant has or has had including illness, allergies, and drug reactions. You will be asked to fill out a list of prescribed medications your son/daughter/ward MUST take while attending camp. You acknowledge that the medicine and/or vitamins are to be in the possession of the Camp Director, delivered to the Camp Director in original containers that identify, in English, the prescribing physician (if a prescription drug), the name of the medication, the dosage, any side effect, and the frequency of administration, and will be dispensed as instructed by you. Exception: INHALERS AND DIABETIC TESTING KITS. All medication brought to camp MUST match what is listed in the participant’s iD Tech Health & Wellness Priorities section of the online Required Form, located in My Account. Any discrepancies may result in long delays at check-in and may require the cancellation of the session, without a refund. Our program staff needs your full cooperation. Thank you for understanding. You also understand that no one at iD Tech is authorized to give any participant over-the-counter medication without written permission. In most cases, our camp personnel are not professional nurses or doctors, and have not been trained in medicine. Our camp personnel have, however, been trained in our medication administration procedures.

You understand that if your participant is taking medication, all medications must be brought to camp in the original container. The original container must identify (in English) the prescribing physician (if a prescription drug), the name of the medication, the dosage, any side effect, and the frequency of administration. Participants needing injections (insulin, hormones, etc.) will need to self-administer the medication under observation of our staff. iD Tech staff is not trained in this area. Upon arrival at camp, all medication must be placed in the care of our Camp Director/Health & Safety Coordinator. Medication brought to camp MUST match what is listed in the participant’s iD’s Health & Wellness Priorities section of the Required Form located online in My Account. Our staff will only administer the dosage as listed on the container. Please provide a physician’s note if your participant’s dosage differs from what is listed. You understand that any discrepancies may result in long delays at check-in and may require the cancellation of the session, without a refund. Please refrain from bringing non-essential vitamins and/or supplements to camp. Our camp staff kindly appreciates your full cooperation.

You understand that it is the responsibility of all parents/guardians to retrieve their participant’s medication from the camp staff at the end of the session. If medication is not picked up within seven days, all medication(s) that are still left behind after that grace period will be disposed of at the end of each session. Should iD Tech dispose of any medication pursuant to this policy, iD Tech shall not be responsible for any damages or liabilities related in any way to such medication, including, but not limited to, replacement cost of the medication and any damages resulting from participant’s failure to administer such medication. iD Tech, by law, is not allowed to mail medication, so please be sure to retrieve all medication before you leave camp.

If the participant has a dietary restriction, you will be asked to inform us. Please note we are not always able to arrange for Kosher meals. This option is dependent upon the options made available by each university. To make special dietary arrangements, please phone our Client Services Department at toll free 1-888-709-TECH (8324), option 1, or for local or international calls, 1-408-871-2227, option 1.

Please note that in certain states and provinces including, but not limited to, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Wisconsin and Maryland, additional health forms are required by state/province law. No participant can attend camp without complying with these mandated state/provincial forms. You will be notified of these forms within My Account.

COMMUNICABLE DISEASES DISCLAIMER

iD Tech conducts its programs on the campuses of private and public educational institutions. Those institutions serve a large community of people coming from the both U.S. and international locations. Those people live and work in close quarters year round. Due to this arrangement there have been and will continue to be outbreaks of communicable diseases on occasion at these institutions.

Communicable diseases, also known as infectious diseases or transmissible diseases, are illnesses that result from the infection, presence and growth of pathogenic (capable of causing disease) biologic agents in an individual human or other animal host. Transmission of these biologic agents can occur in a variety of ways, including direct physical contact with an infectious person, consuming contaminated foods or beverages, contact with contaminated body fluids, contact with contaminated inanimate objects, airborne (inhalation), or being bitten by an infected insect or tick. Types of communicable diseases which might impact the types of locations and populations include:

  • Meningitis
  • Norovirus
  • Influenza
  • Pertussis
  • Measles
  • Varicella
  • West Niles Virus

The best protection against most communicable diseases is vaccination. We encourage all parents/guardians to have their children receive childhood vaccinations to protect them against illness. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide valuable information on communicable diseases and vaccinations.

If a participant requires an aide at school then he/she will need to be accompanied by an aide at the iD Tech program, and that aide will need to be present for the duration of the session. You will be responsible for charges for room and board for the aide (if applicable) and according to iD Tech policy, the aide must be age 18 or older, may not be a family member, and must achieve a favorable result on a criminal background check, as well as interview with the iD Tech Human Resources Department prior to attending iD Tech programs. If the above situation pertains to you, you will be asked to contact the iD Tech office at least twenty (20) business days prior to the start of camp so that there is sufficient time to organize and run the background check. A background check processing fee will be assessed to the customer for the aide. The stated fee is $25 for programs in states other than New York. For all programs in New York, the processing fee is $90.50. These are direct costs that iD Tech passes on. Meals are not provided for aides. If you would like your aide to receive meals on campus, that can be arranged by contacting the iD Tech office at 1-888-709-TECH (8324), option 1 or info@iDTech.com.

You acknowledge that upon observation of your participant at the iD Tech program, if it is determined by the Director that the program is not a suitable and/or productive environment for your participant, iD Tech may dismiss the participant and no refund will be issued. iD Tech will exhaust every opportunity for an excellent relationship with each and every participant, but in some rare cases iD Tech may not be a compatible environment for every participant.

Lost, Stolen or Damaged Property. You will be responsible for personal or property damage incurred by your son/daughter/ward while at camp. iD Tech is not responsible for personal belongings lost or damaged by casualty, theft, laundry, etc. You agree to pay the replacement costs for lost meal cards, dorm keys, or room damage—in accordance with the policy at each program location. You agree to accept full responsibility, financial or otherwise, for the conduct of your participant—including damage to equipment, dorm room, or facilities. iD Tech does not owe a duty to protect its participants from theft or damage to property. You will not hold iD Tech responsible for any lost, stolen, or damaged personal items brought to camp. If any theft of or damage to your son/daughter/ward’s property should occur at camp, or in association with the camp, you understand that iD Tech will not be held responsible.

Physical and Recreational Activities such as sports, outdoor, and other activities contain inherent risks. You are aware that your son/daughter/ward may be participating in activities such as sports, hiking, swimming or other recreational activities, and that such activities contain inherent risks of injuries. You assume all risks and understand that iD Tech, its owners, agents, partners, facility providers, and employees will not be held liable for damages or injuries associated with recreational activities, including any and all claims based on negligence. You understand that you must report any and all injuries immediately to the program Director.

You give iD Tech staff members permission to take your son/daughter/ward to places of relevant interest, the swimming pool (where available), guided campus tours, and facilities within walking distance of camp, both on and off campus. Off-campus activities will likely occur routinely in our Ultimate Gaming Weekends and Weekends Stays programs, the iD Game Design & Development Academy, iD Programming Academy and iD Film Academy—public and/or private transportation will be utilized. Shuttles may be utilized for Fencing & Tech at Stanford University.

You understand that all images, testimonials, photos, video and audio taken at or in connection with iD Tech are the sole and exclusive property of iD Tech. As a condition of enrollment, you must understand and authorize that photos may be taken of your student. You also understand and agree that said content may be used by iD Tech in camp promotional materials, marketing collateral, and online media. These images, testimonials, photos, videos and audio may be shared and used by corporate partners, the media, or other organizations who work with iD Tech. You understand that iD Tech, its owners, agents, partners, facility providers, and employees will not be held liable for damages and injuries associated with said publishing, including any and all claims based on negligence. Please note that if iD Tech is contacted by the press, a participant’s full name may be used in print, radio, TV and other mediums. We may not have the opportunity to contact all families for permission before the press arrives, so we have created a blanket policy. We thank you for understanding.

You understand that all projects and work created while at iD Tech may be used by iD Tech in camp promotional materials and other print and online media for camp purposes. These projects may be shared and used by corporate partners, the media, or other organizations who work with iD Tech. You agree that any digital movie created during the iD Tech course may be submitted to a film festival by iD Tech and/or any of the participant(s) in the group that created the movie. You understand that iD Tech, its owners, agents, partners, facility providers, and employees will not be held liable for damages and injuries associated with said publishing, including any and all claims based on negligence.

You understand that movies played at any of the programs run by iD Tech are rated PG and PG-13 and selected at the sole discretion of iD Tech. You understand that video and computer games used at any of the programs run by iD Tech are selected at the sole discretion of iD Tech staff.

You understand that some iD Tech game development courses require creation or use of an online account during instructional time, or will require an online account to be created for access to games and networked game play. Parental/Guardian consent is required and granted to create Valve Steam accounts (for students under the age of 13) to activate take-home software.

Games Rated “T” and “M” – Our Responsibility: iD Tech is the industry leader in offering various technology courses, including courses and activities revolving around gaming. In order to offer the most cutting-edge experience for participants, iD Tech has adopted the policy of allowing the use of some select games rated “E” for Everyone, “T” for Teen, and “M” for Mature to be used as part of the curriculum. You understand that while iD Tech takes its corporate responsibility and iD Tech family values very seriously, it cannot guarantee that younger participants at iD Tech will avoid complete contact with the games rated “T” for Teen, or “M” for Mature. iD Tech will make a concerted effort to minimize exposure to any games not appropriate for these age groups. You understand that iD Tech defines “Teen Participants” as those turning thirteen (13) years old by December 31, 2014, or earlier. Or if a participant is attending a course designed for ages 13-18.

Games Rated M – Definition and Release: Some of the game titles your participant may be exposed to are rated “M” (Mature) by the ESRB (Entertainment Rating Software Board). An ESRB “M” rating means the games have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or strong language, including, but not limited to extreme and/or realistic depictions of blood, gore, the mutilation of body parts, weapons, and depictions of human injury and death, non-explicit depictions of sexual behavior, and/or explicit and/or frequent use of profanity. You voluntarily assume any and all risks, known or unknown, associated with your participant’s access to “M” rated game content at an iD Tech program and you hereby agree not to feign ignorance, sue or otherwise complain and irrevocably and unconditionally release, waive and forever discharge iD Tech, its licensors, suppliers, game developers and publishers, their past, present and future parents, subsidiaries (whether or not wholly-owned), affiliates, divisions, agents, representatives, employees, licensees, licensors, successors and assigns, jointly and individually (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Releases”), and agree to hold the Releases harmless, from any and all manner of liabilities, claims and demands of any kind or nature whatsoever, in law or equity, whether known or unknown, which you (or your assigns, agents and/or representatives) ever had, now have, or in the future may have against the Releases, including, but not limited to claims arising out of or related to your participant’s exposure to an “M” rated game or your decision to participate or have your participant(s) participate in an iD Tech program that includes in its curriculum an “M” rated game. This release shall be binding on all of your successors-in-interest and heirs. You acknowledge and specifically agree to waive the benefits of any statute or other applicable law that provides that a general release does not extend to claims that the releasing party does not know or suspect to exist in his/her favor at the time of executing the release, which if known would have affected his/her willingness to grant the release.

Participant Projects: You understand that iD Tech makes a reasonable effort to send each participant home with a working game or project, or posts the participant’s project to a project website. However, there will be instances when the game or project will not work on an individual’s home system. In these rare cases, iD Tech does not take responsibility for non-functioning/non-compatible/non-complete games or projects. iD Tech staff will provide each participant with their completed project at the conclusion of each session. It is the responsibility of the parent and participant to test the participant’s project on the iD Tech computer in the lab before going home at the end of the session. Refunds will not be issued for non-functioning/non-compatible/non-complete projects.

Self Sign-Out Policy for Teen Courses: If your child registers for a course published for ages 13+, this means he/she will sign himself/herself out with camp staff between 5-6 PM daily, unless attending overnight camp. Once students sign themselves out, they will no longer be in the care of iD Tech. If your student is under the age of 13, but enrolled in a course published for ages 13+, this policy is still in effect.

Sign-Out Policy for Pre-Teen Courses: If your child registers for a course in the 12 and under group, this means he/she must be signed out of our care by the guardian or authorized pick-up person. In order to pick up your participant from camp, only those knowing the code word—or those named as additional authorized pick-up persons (and who show a valid picture ID, Driver’s License or Passport)—will be eligible. If you would like your student to be cleared for “self sign-out”, you can grant permission in My Account. If you select the self sign-out option, please be advised that once your student signs himself/herself out, he/she is no longer in the care of iD Tech.

If the participant is old enough to drive with a valid state driver license, he/she may bring a vehicle to camp. It is understood that students are not allowed to transport other students in their vehicles under any circumstances. Additionally, the participant is responsible for arranging permitted parking on campus. Parking tickets will not be reimbursed. If theft or damage should occur to the vehicle while at camp, or in transit to or from camp, iD Tech will not be held responsible for any damages, and you hereby release iD Tech from any such liability.

You understand that iD Tech reserves the right to cancel a session. If a session is cancelled, you understand that you may enroll your son/daughter/ward in another session. If one is not available in the local vicinity for the same dates, a refund will be issued for all monies paid to iD Tech for the cancelled session. You understand that if iD Tech is forced to close a session based on a recommendation by the local Health Services Department (in the case of pandemic flu etc.) or due to other acts of nature, no refunds will be issued. The tuition paid for the cancelled session can be applied to a voucher that can be used during that same season (as space permits) or will be carried over to the next season.

ON BEHALF OF YOUR SON/DAUGHTER/WARD, THE PARENT/GUARDIAN HEREBY RELEASES INTERNALDRIVE, INC., ITS OWNERS, AGENTS, PARTNERS, FACILITY PROVIDERS AND EMPLOYEES FROM LIABILITY (INCLUDING CLAIMS BASED UPON NEGLIGENCE) FOR DAMAGE OR INJURY TO YOUR SON/DAUGHTER/WARD OR DAMAGE OF ANY PERSONAL PROPERTY, ACCEPTING YOURSELF THE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY AND ALL SUCH DAMAGE OR INJURY WHICH MAY RESULT DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY FROM ANY NEGLIGENT ACTS OR ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATED WITH INTERNALDRIVE, INC. HOWEVER, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE NOT RELEASING INTERNALDRIVE, INC., ITS OWNERS, AGENTS, PARTNERS, FACILITY PROVIDERS, AND EMPLOYEES FROM GROSS NEGLIGENCE, RECKLESS CONDUCT OR INTENTIONALLY TORTIOUS CONDUCT. TO THE EXTENT THIS RELEASE CONFLICTS WITH STATE/PROVINCIAL LAW GOVERNING RELEASES, THIS RELEASE IS TO BE GIVEN THE FULLEST FORCE AND EFFECT PERMITTED UNDER STATE/PROVINCIAL LAW. SHOULD ANY PART OF THIS CONTRACT BE FOUND INVALID OR NOT ENFORCEABLE BY A COURT OF LAW, THEN THE REMAINING PORTIONSHALL CONTINUE TO BE VALID AND IN FORCE.

YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS RISK OF INJURY TO THE NAMED PARTICIPANT AS A RESULT OF ACTIVITIES, AND KNOWINGLY AND VOLUNTARILY ASSUME ALL RISK OF SUCH INJURY. BY ENTERING “My Account“, IT CERTIFIES THAT YOU, THE PARENT/GUARDIAN, AGREE TO THE TERMS STATED WITHIN, AND WILL TAKE THE TIME TO ENSURE THAT ALL INFORMATION IN THE REQUIRED FORM WILL BE UP-TO-DATE AND ACCURATE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE, PRIOR TO ATTENDING THE ID TECH PROGRAM.

THIS AGREEMENT CONTAINS A BINDING ARBITRATION PROVISION WHICH MAY BE ENFORCED BY BOTH PARTIES.

ARBITRATION IN LIEU OF LITIGATION: You agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to this Agreement, your participant’s participation at INTERNALDRIVE, INC., or otherwise arising between the parties, including, without limitation, any participants statutorily created or protected rights, as permitted by applicable state/provincial or federal laws, may be settled by arbitration in the state/province and county in which the camp is held, in accordance with the Commercial Rules of the American Arbitration Association, and judgment upon the award rendered by the arbitrator(s) may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. The prevailing party in the arbitration shall be entitled to recover expenses including costs and reasonable attorney’s fees associated therewith. Should any part of this contract be found invalid or not enforceable by a court of law, then the remaining portion shall continue to be valid and in force. You hereby acknowledge that you understand the terms of the ARBITRATION AGREEMENT, and agree to comply with all of its terms and provisions.

iD TECH PARTICIPANT CODE OF CONDUCT

iD Tech has the right to dismiss any individuals if their actions or attitudes are deemed detrimental, as set forth below in the iD Tech Code of Conduct, to the general atmosphere of the camp and that there shall be no refunds issued for such dismissal.

You agree that you have read through, understand, and agree to the iD Tech Code of Conduct. You further agree that you will review the iD Tech Code of Conduct with your participant(s) that is/are participating in a program run by iD Tech. As the parent/guardian of a participant attending an iD Tech program, you understand that your participant must act in a way that is in keeping with the iD Tech Code of Conduct. You also understand that your participant can be dismissed from camp if his/her actions or attitudes seem to be harmful to the atmosphere or to other participants at the camp, in the opinion of iD Tech personnel.

You understand that your participant can be dismissed, without a refund, from camp for the following reasons: Drug/Alcohol/Tobacco use; Viewing pornography or any inappropriate material on the Internet; Inappropriate language (swearing, using bad words, racial slurs); Physical violence or threats of physical violence against other participants or iD Tech staff; Damage to University facilities or iD Tech equipment, Stealing property of others; Inappropriate use of equipment; Sexual Harassment of other participants or iD Tech staff; Internet hacking; Damage to dorm room; or Bullying.

If possession of illegal substances or weapons is suspected, participant(s) will be subject to search and seizure. If possession of illegal substances or weapons is found, participants(s) will be dismissed from camp immediately. Personal pets or animals are not allowed to be brought or kept at camp. Participant (and therefore parent/guardian) is responsible for any personal items brought to and loaned at camp. Participant promises to respect all iD Tech staff members and participants while treating the facilities and equipment with great care.

Bringing electronic devices to camp, including Smartphone, Laptop, Digital Camera, Handheld Console, etc.

We do NOT require students to bring any devices to iD Tech. However, in some courses, the participant may want to learn photography on their own personal DSLR, or may want to upload an iPhone app to their iPhone, for example. Additionally, we understand that parents may want to communicate with their students via cell phone. Should the participant bring a personal device to the program, please note:

  • iD Tech is NOT responsible for lost, damaged or stolen equipment—student and/or parent/guardian assume all risk.
  • Personal devices may NOT be used during instructional times—unless they are approved by the instructor.
  • We recommend that personal devices be locked in a dorm room or backpack. Cell phones/Smart phones can be kept on hand but must be in silent mode during instructional times.
  • Accessing the internet via a local Wi-Fi hotspot on the university campus is the sole responsibility of the participant. Participant and parent/guardian must comply with all university terms & conditions, and assume all financial risk. iD Tech does not facilitate internet access for non-iD Tech devices.
  • Viewing inappropriate content (including sexual content, inappropriate violence, racism, bullying, etc.) online may result in immediate dismissal from camp, without a refund.
  • Any attempts at computer “hacking” will result in immediate dismissal from camp, without a refund. Local authorities will be contacted when warranted.
  • In most cases, students will NOT be permitted to use their own personal STEAM accounts.

Recommended: Students have access to tons of technology while at iD Tech. Feel free to leave personal electronic devices at home. Certain filtering software is placed on iD Tech computers, and this may not be the case with a personal device. Additionally, studies from the American Camp Association have shown that students who leave their devices at home gain a bigger sense of independence. Plus, there is always email.

Parent/Guardian and participant understand that iD Tech reserves the right to dismiss participant from the session without any prior warning for violating any of the terms of the Participant Code of Conduct.

You understand that in general, iD Tech views social networking sites (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.), personal websites, and blogs positively and respects the rights of our participants to use them as a medium for self-expression. iD Tech does, however, also recognize the potential dangers associated with the abuse of social networking sites, and has set forth this policy.

You further understand that for the safety of our participants and to protect the privacy of our summer staff, iD Tech requires that participants observe the following policies:

  1. Any projects or websites created by participants and hosted on iD Tech servers may not contain links to websites containing personal information or inappropriate material.
  2. Users must follow the terms of use of the said social site, including following the specified age policies.
  3. iD Tech does not allow the use of its company logo or those of their corporate partners or community partners on any personal website, social networking group, or blog without written permission by iD Tech or its corporate or community partners.
  4. Participants should also be aware that under no circumstances is staff allowed to give personal contact information for social networking sites, personal websites, blogs, or instant messenger programs. This must be arranged by the participant’s parent/guardian through the Human Resources Department at iD Tech.
  5. For the safety of our campers and to protect the privacy of our summer staff, iD Tech has implemented a policy to govern interactions outside of camp. Staff may communicate publicly via the iD Tech Alumni Facebook Group. However, staff is not permitted to communicate privately with, give out personal contact info to, or become social media friends with participants under the age of 18. The participant’s parent/guardian must first contact iD Tech’s Human Resources Department to grant permission for the participant to contact the staff member, and the Human Resources Department will then contact the staff member on the participant’s behalf. Should you have any questions regarding this policy, please email HR@iDTech.com.
  6. Participants may not give their personal contact information to a staff member. To correspond with instructors after the session has ended, the participant’s parent must contact the Human Resources Department at the main office (not Directors) to grant permission for the participant to contact the staff member. The Human Resources Department will then contact the staff member on behalf of the participant.

Facebook Alumni Group. We review every request to join the iD Tech Alumni Group before approving a new member. Only current and former participants or staff members are currently being accepted into the iD Tech Alumni Group. We feel this will provide the most open environment to share ideas and stories from camp. If we cannot find you in our system as a former or current participant or staff member, we will send you a private message (PM) to confirm who you are.

If you have not been “approved” and we have not sent a PM, it is likely because you do not have messaging turned on so we do not have a way to reach you privately. Please send a private Facebook message to us, or send an email to SocialMedia@iDTech.com, and we will review, approve, and add you (or, we will send you a nicely-worded response to let you know that you are currently not eligible to become an iD Tech Alumni Group member because you are not a current or former participant or staff member). If you have any questions, please feel free to post a private message to us on Facebook, or send an email to SocialMedia@iDTech.com.

iD Tech makes every reasonable effort to prevent participants from being exposed to inappropriate web content. As a safeguard, iD Tech installs internet filtering software on iD Tech computers. No software is 100% perfect, and some inappropriate content may inadvertently be accessed. iD Tech takes reasonable precautions to guard against inappropriate material from being viewed. If inappropriate content is viewed, the instructor will follow standard protocol. Please understand that participants found in violation of our “common sense” internet policy may be removed from camp without receiving a refund.

NON-TRADITIONAL, BLENDED EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT

iD Tech believes in a non-traditional, blended learning environment. Typically, iD Tech teaches different courses simultaneously within the same lab environment. Labs may be noisy, crazy, and high-energy. Age ranges may vary. We remind all participants that this is a summer camp environment, and we typically blend traditional summer camp activities with our technology courses, which include both in-person and online instruction.
