Why do we run our Bay Area Spring Break Camp? It’s a sneak peek into our summer computer camp and courses. Don’t be fooled though; just because this is a limited offering doesn’t mean we skimp on the planning! In fact, months of work go into this fun-filled and exciting week, allowing iD instructors, regional managers, curriculum developers and best of all, campers, to experience new courses and technology prior to Summer in a unique, small group setting.
Why should kids and teens spend their precious Spring Break time at iD Tech Camps? Veteran iD Regional Manager, Keri Callison, puts it best:
iD Tech Camps is a great place to send kids over Spring Break! For local families, it offers an amazing opportunity for some fun matched with tons of learning. It is an affordable program, with extremely low camper to instructor ratios (usually 4:1), and campers are exposed to the hottest new technology courses months before the “official” courses actually start!
This year, campers had an exciting array of courses to choose from including Video Editing & Special Effects, Web Design & Flash® Animation, Programming in C++ or Java™, and many more!
In our NEW Adventures in Robotics course, younger campers were enthralled in designing and building their very own robots using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education NXT Base Set and Software. Check out these two happy campers and their cool creations:
With this much lively learning going on, it’s not surprising that just as in previous years, Beta Camp sold out fast! It looks like the word is spreading that this is the place to be over Spring Break for kids and teens ages 7-17. In fact, Keri Callison mentioned that “the opportunity is so great, we actually had a family come from Florida for the week!”
Don’t worry if you missed out this year, we still have many exciting courses available this summer and would love to see you at one of our over 60 prestigious university locations.
