iD Tech Camps Program Details
Co-Ed | Weeklong | Programming, Game Design, Apps, Robotics, Web Design, Film, Photography, and More
Our summer computer camps for kids, pre-teens, and teens are segmented by course and age. Teens will study, socialize and eat with other teens, but may be in the vicinity of younger students during lab time. Yes, we’re a tech camp, but we do not sit in front of digital devices all day. We provide a well-balanced, fun summer camp experience that is age-appropriate for kids, pre-teens, and teens. Imagine a small group learning environment where the curriculum is tailored to you. A place where you build critical 21st century STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills in intimate clusters of just 8 students maximum per instructor, and collaborate with new friends.
You’ll gain confidence, explore a unique college campus, and get a taste of the collegiate experience. This isn’t just camp. It’s a portal to a fulfilling future, in college and beyond. Kids camps and teen camps encompass courses in programming with Java, C++, Python, Scratch, and more, app development with iPhone and Android, Minecraft, modding, FPS and RPG game design, robotics engineering with VEX and LEGO, 3D modeling & animation, filmmaking, photography, and web design. Course offerings vary by site. View courses at this location. Beginner or advanced, you'll get inspired by energetic, tech-savvy instructors. Do something big this summer!
About New York Institute of Technology
At iD Tech Camps held at NYIT, we strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development. Our popular summer camps in New York are among a handful of elite summer camps located in the Manhattan area.
We have chosen the New York Institute of Technology to host our summer camps in Manhattan because of its outstanding reputation as a top tier university that fosters excellence through career-oriented educational offerings. NYIT's Manhattan campus gives students the opportunity to take a full range of classes, but most students focus on computer science, engineering, architecture, planning and media - subjects that mirror our tech course curriculum!
Considered a pioneer in the field of 3D computer animation, NYIT is still recognized as a top science and engineering university. There are approximately 15,000 students who attend NYIT - most of those who attend the Manhattan campus focus their studies within the areas of computer science, engineering, architecture and planning and media. Our summer program at NYIT is only a 20-minute drive from La Guardia Airport and a 30-minute drive from JFK International Airport. Come check out our New York summer camps!
