What are your kids doing while out of school for spring break? Well, there are fifty kids having a great time in Santa Clara, CA, learning a variety of computer technologies this week. These kids are creating video games, building websites, learning graphic design skills, exploring digital photography techniques, and much more. Rather than playing video games at home, some of these kids are creating their own.
iD Tech Camps, North America’s #1 technology camp, is conducting our 3rd season of a special one week Spring Break Beta Camp program at Don Callejon School in Santa Clara. Students between the ages of 7-17 are getting a sneak peak at some of our computer courses at a fraction of our regular tuition. We have twelve staff encouraging and teaching these fifty students to express themselves creatively, all while making sure they have a lot of fun. That is an average of four students per instructor providing customized instruction delivered by highly trained adult staff.
We have selected Santa Clara Unified School District to host our spring break computer camps at the Don Callejon School because, like iD Tech Camps, it is dedicated to enriching the lives of its students through the pursuit of advanced technology skills. The students at our spring break kids camp participate in smaller than average classes to test curriculum content and software applications. The result of this kind of “beta test” allows iD Tech Camps to execute the best summer technology program in the nation. Looking for a day or overnight camp at one of our other summer camp locations?

One of our experienced year-round Regional Managers, Keri Callison, has been planning this event for months. “I am so excited about this one-of-a-kind program. We have been working hard to prepare a robust set of courses that these kids are really enjoying. It’s been real fun to find that one of our new courses for 2010, Digital Photography & Photoshop, is a big hit. What we are learning this week will translate directly to all our camps nationwide this summer making this our best summer yet.”
