Frequently asked questions

iD Tech Academies offer intensive, assignment-driven programming workshops in various course topics including machine learning, virtual reality, game development, robotics, and more. Programs are designed to be a rigorous, pre-college experience that provides industry insights for teens interested in pursuing STEM fields in college or as a career.

Academy programs run in two-week sessions. Weekend stays are an optional add-on at select locations. While they’re fully supervised by our staff, weekend stays are filled with activities designed for fun (rather than our usual instruction). 

Because this is a teen-only program, students are provided as much autonomy as possible to shape their own weeks with what they want to learn and how to spend their free time. Along with the additional freedom academies allow, teens will get to stay in the dorms on campus to get an even better feel for college life (with boys and girls staying in separate areas of the dorms).

Along with an iD Tech diploma, teens leave their academy with a portfolio tailored to their course topic—a valuable addition to resumes and portfolios for college applications, internships, and jobs. 

Our instructors are recruited from top universities, but more importantly, they are elite mentors who understand teens, share their interests, bring first-hand experience, and serve as real-life role models for what the future holds. They are trained extensively in-person (and virtually) to differentiate engaging content to campers’ needs, connect to each teen, and inspire them to pursue their dreams. 

Students spend approximately five hours per day on the computer, taking breaks to engage in recreational activities throughout their sessions. We blend traditional summer camp activities like sports, gaming tournaments, chess tournaments, outdoor activities, and more with cutting-edge technology courses. Beyond STEM skill development, students socialize, make friends, and have fun!

As courses frequently sell out, we recommend registering early to secure your child’s spot. You can make unlimited changes - with no fees - up to 14 days before the start of your session. If you need to cancel, you will receive a refund of the amount paid, less the payment plan fee (if applicable) and the deposit of $250 per week. No refunds are provided for cancellations made within 14 days of your session start date.

If your teen will be bringing a phone to camp, they’ll be able to access their device to update you on their adventures and take selfies with their new friends during break times.

While many kids can’t stop talking about their days at camp, others are kids of few words. Our academy staff are here to help by taking pictures of campers in action! Our photos page is regularly updated to showcase all of the fun taking place at camp.

During our Friday Family Showcase, loved ones get to see their camper’s final project while interacting with camp staff and learning about the week, skills gained, and more. 

When registering for overnight camp, you may request a roommate, and we’ll make every effort to accommodate. If you or your teen's friend have already registered but did not specify a roommate upon registration, you can add one in the “Group With Request” section of your My Account up to two weeks before the start of your session. Otherwise, your teen will be assigned a roommate based on their age and gender.

You can also always call our Program Specialists at 1-888-709-8324 or email hello@idtech.com to assist you with making this request.

Yes! You can register today for as little as $250 per student and pay the balance in convenient monthly installments. You can save $50 by registering for multiple sessions, and you can earn $25 in credit when you invite a friend to join camp (your friend saves $25 when they sign up too!). 

Our Program Specialists are here to provide you with the best experience. Looking for a personalized course recommendation? Need help signing up? We’ve got you covered. Call us at 1-888-709-8324 or email hello@idtech.com
