Course Format 

This course is part of a weeklong summer camp running Monday through Friday. Learning sessions will be held in a lab on an inspiring university campus. Your child will be placed within a small group and guided by an experienced instructor. Daily schedules are balanced and allow for outdoor and recreational activities. Day and overnight options are available based on location.


Sample Schedule

Here’s a sample of what a week in this course could look like. Keep in mind students will progress at varying paces, and this is meant to serve as an outline of key materials and the overall experience. 

Students will learn the fundamentals of drawing and design, and then create their own digital animation in Adobe Animate.

Next, students will brainstorm and design a character they can craft in software like Adobe Photoshop. They’ll draw a model sheet of their final design and then bring it to life through hand-drawn animation.

Lights, camera, action! Students will dive into the basics of storyboarding and story structure. They’ll develop a timed video animatic of an original story featuring their character.

As they work towards a polished final project, students will edit and refine their animations, adding sound effects and music. If they’re working on demo reel projects, they can use software like Adobe Premiere Pro to polish and add effects.

Now it’s time for the finishing touches! As a capstone for the week, students will export and debut their films in an animation showcase for the whole class to enjoy.

At the conclusion of your child's course, they will receive an official iD Tech diploma and course transcript outlining the skills they learned over the course of the week.

While we are a tech program with the goal of transforming your child’s interests into real-world STEM skills, we are also a summer camp. Simply put, camp is a balance of learning and fun! Students learn in small groups in labs on a prestigious college campus and from expert instructors who are trained to inspire and engage.

Day camps kick off with icebreakers and team-building before jumping into coursework for most of the morning. When it’s time for lunch, your child will walk from the computer lab to the dining hall as they take in the beauty of campus. Students return to the learning labs in the afternoon for more coursework, followed by an afternoon break where they will have the chance to take part in outdoor game time and more campus discovery before wrapping up with instruction!

Overnighters work until dinner, and are then off to create deeper connections and memories while gaming, watching movies, and more. All together, days and nights are filled with learning and adventure that builds lifelong friendships.

Instructors are trained to be in tune with students’ unique needs and provide a personalized learning experience. 

In addition to valuable tech skills, kids and teens leave camp with new relationships, resilience, critical thinking opportunities, and an even greater love for tech (if that’s possible!).

At the conclusion of your child's course, they will receive a transcript outlining everything they learned over the week. They’ll also take home an iD Tech t-shirt, water bottle, and a USB with their course project files, along with access to installation and setup guides so they can continue working at their own pace.
