About University of Denver
We have chosen the University of Denver to host our teen gaming computer camps in Colorado because of its reputation as a highly academic institution. Founded in 1864, the University of Denver is the oldest independent university in the Rocky Mountains. Our Denver, CO camps are located in a dynamic, cosmopolitan city close to pristine mountain wilderness, and the university is distinguished by its creative combination of liberal arts, professional programs, selectively focused graduate studies and associated schools and centers. Teen students can take in iD's challenging game development curriculum while enjoying an independent pre-college experience.
The iD Gaming Academy is a one-of-a-kind offering for students seeking to get better at the art and science of game development. The program is intended for high-school-aged students ages 13-18. As part of the full university experience, students will eat in the campus dining halls and sleep in real dorms. All meals are included.
General Location:The University of Denver is located just 8 miles south of downtown Denver, 15 miles to the mountains and only 45 minutes from Denver International Airport, making it a very accessible overnight camp location.
