One of the fine traditions we've got at iD is the creation of a quick and light summer camp video that we create for our staff at training. Our regional management team is tasked with making us laugh--but to also get some training points across to our summer camp staff.
You have to check out this video. I am sure it will be a big hit with our campers too! For those of you who don't know, this was shot on a digital still camera and edited just the night before training. But, I think it is really, really fun. Go RM team!
Training is serious business. Kids are serious business. But, we can't take ourselves TOO seriously. We have to remember that this is camp! This video goes a long way in demonstrating that the best in the business can also have a good time!

I am currently writing from Gotham City. Beautiful day here. Breezy. In the 80's. We're on the heels of our next training here in the Northeast. Very exciting. The training begins tomorrow. We'll see 200 of iD's best and brightest. Get ready people!
But, before we get going on this week's training, I wanted to upload pictures from the last week. A lot of staff made some great new friends. I want to thank Cari and Elmer (Emu) for sending me some additional pics.

It's hard to believe that our summer computer camp begins in just a week. In the fall and winter, summer always seems so far away. Then, suddenly, it is upon us. We're looking forward to another amazing season. It starts with recruiting, hiring and training the best. My sincere appreciation to all of our fine staff who are so engaged in our mission. Let's get this party started!
