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.

About University of Washington, Seattle

This is our 16th season hosting summer camps in Seattle, WA at our University of Washington location. We strike the right balance between off-computer activities (creative games, sports, life skills, etc.) and essential technology education to foster STEM skill development (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Our popular University of Washington summer day camps and overnight camps allow students to explore tech interests in a fun, yet challenging setting. GO HUSKIES!

We have chosen the UW main campus to host our popular Seattle academic summer camps because it is recognized for the excellence of its academic programs, faculty, research contributions and public service. The SEA-TAC Airport is approximately 25 minutes away, making University of Washington an easily accessible option for both a day camp and an overnight camp. Come check us out!

Aside from impressive academics, the University of Washington is also known for its athletic programs—"Go, Dawgs!" Did you know the founders and owners of iD Tech Camps are a brother and sister duo who both graduated from UW?

Rankings: The U.S. News and World Report ranked the University of Washington 41st among "national universities." Both the University's School of Medicine and School of Nursing are ranked #1. For the School of Nursing, this #1 ranking has been the norm, going all the way back to when the first nursing school survey was conducted in 1984. Equally impressive, their Primary Medical has achieved #1 ever since the first ever U.S News & World Report ranking of such schools.

Athletics: Selected by the student committee in 1922, The University of Washington Husky continues to be one of the most recognizable mascots in all of college sports. The husky actually replaced UW's former mascot, the "Sun Dodger," an intangible reference to the mostly wet weather experienced by those in the Pacific Northwest. While the costumed "Harry the Husky" performs at sporting events, a true Alaskan Malamute (appropriately named "Dubs") has historically lead the Husky football team onto the field at the start of home games.

Distinguished Alumni & Personnel: The University of Washington's most notable alumni include CEO and co-Founder of MySpace Chris DeWolfe; co-Founder of Baskin & Robbins Irv Robbins; and former NFL quarterback and member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Warren Moon.
