Sample Day

7:30am: Overnight Campers, rise and shine! Eat breakfast in the campus dining hall—breakfast is typically all-you-can-eat, and consists of favorites such as sausages, pancakes, orange juice, cereal, waffles, and fruit.

8am-9am: Check-in. All Campers meet for morning announcements, ice breakers, and team-building activities.

9:30am: Split into course groups and let the tech fun begin! Breaks are taken at the discretion of each instructor. Younger students will take more frequent breaks.

12pm: Lunch time—head to the dining hall if you’re on the iD Meal Plan. Depending on the policy of each university, students who bring their own bag lunch will either eat in the dining hall with the rest of the crew, or laze under a shady tree outside with an iD instructor.

1pm: Back to the labs!

2:30pm: A game of Ultimate Frisbee, anyone? Capture the flag? Gaming tournaments? Board games? Optional sports? We offer many summer camp activities that vary by week and location. Beyond STEM skill development, students will socialize, make friends, and have fun.

3:30pm: Return to the labs. Let’s create!

5pm: Wrap-up your projects for the day.

5pm-6pm: Pick-up time for Day Campers.

6pm: Dinner for Overnight Campers.

7pm: Overnight Camp students participate in supervised recreational activities such as optional sports, gaming tournaments, and movie nights. In some cases, students can continue working on their projects, as scheduling permits.

10pm: Lights out for Overnight Campers.

How We Teach | Personalized Instruction

Our tech curriculum is based on a blended learning strategy. We couple live one-on-one instruction with iD Game Plan, our innovative learning engine, to provide you with properly paced learning. Most of our courses at iD Tech Camps are for beginner through advanced students.

All-Adult Staff

Our entire staff is comprised of adults ages 18 and over. We do not hire Counselors-in-Training (CITs) at our summer technology camps. We believe you learn best from adults who have mastered their technology skills. Some of our instructors are tech industry professionals. Others are graduate and undergraduate students majoring in the fields of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, App Design, Film, and other related fields. We’re extremely selective when it comes to our camp staff.

Other Activities

At iD Tech Camps, balance is very important. Our courses are fun and engaging, and completely unlike school. We want you to develop genuine passion for STEM subjects, and keep coming back year after year. If it's not fun—and if you don't learn a lot—we know you won't return. You can expect roughly 5 hours a day of instruction, with plenty of time for supervised breaks, social time, outdoor play, optional sports, video games, and other creative techtivities. (Jump to Sample Day for additional details.) Many clients describe the total iD Tech experience as "magical" and "unlike anything else." We work hard to make the experience unique, memorable, and valuable.
