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.
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.
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.
