Staff that Inspires Greatness
Top instructors carefully selected from elite universities
Faculty & Staff
iD Tech Camps (Ages 7-12)
I did it. I have been selected from thousands of applicants to be an iD instructor—it's a badge of honor. I am a mentor and an inspiration. How did I get here? Because I have spirit. Because I value education and put my heart into my own learning. Because I’m tech-savvy, and I've seen firsthand the impact technology education can have on a child’s life—I can share that power.
As the world’s #1 summer tech camp, our company is only as brilliant as our people. Our summer staff remains one of our greatest sources of pride—they’re family. Our selective hiring practices ensure our summer computer camps for kids are led by bold, qualified, and genuinely impassioned adult instructors. Some are established industry-professionals, while many are undergraduates and graduates recruited from top universities like MIT, Stanford, UCLA, Emory, and Princeton. We've respectfully created a no Counselor-in-Training (CIT) Policy. Our courses are taught by well-paid adult instructors who have been trained in-person.

- Where do you find your summer staff?
Our summer instructors are recruited from the same top universities where we hold our summer programs. Many are upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, recent STEM graduates, and industry professionals. Some are iD alumni who have returned as instructors to pay it forward. We're united by our passion for progressive technology education.
- How do I know my student is safe at iD Tech Camps? Do you run background checks?
We take safety and risk management very seriously. All staff members undergo thorough background checks and reference checks, and each camp has a Director and staff members that are CPR & First-Aid Certified. Our staff is trained in-person.
- What is your student to instructor ratio? Is it truly guaranteed?
Our 8:1 ratios are guaranteed. They're a huge point of distinction for us. Beginner or advanced, we believe you'll learn better in a small group environment with personalized instruction and proper pacing. If we fail to deliver on our ratio promise, you get $100 off your tuition. We've bet our reputation on upholding the 8:1 guarantee.
- How are iD Tech Camps counselors compensated?
Our counselors are paid considerably more than the industry standard. If they make it through our meticulous screening process, it is our responsibility to train and mentor them—and to compensate them fairly.
- How are iD Tech Camps counselors trained?
We love tech, but we believe there is no substitute for training our summer staff in person. By their first day of instruction, they're confident, excited, and equipped to inspire and teach. In addition to our rigorous in-person training, we conduct online trainings and we evaluate each staff member weekly. You will also have the opportunity to evaluate your instructor's performance.
- Can I request the same instructor as last year?
Our staff schedule changes frequently—we are unable to guarantee special staff requests.
