Overnight summer camps

Sleepaway camp is a big deal for a family—we understand! It takes commitment, trust, and pre-planning to make sure your student is equipped to have a comfortable, safe, and FUN experience. We hope you’ll find this collection of information and tips useful as you prepare for your student’s overnight camp adventure.

The Smithsonian reports that by the end of 2018, 2.4 million STEM jobs will go unfilled. There’s never been a better time to prepare for your future in tech.

What you should know

iD Tech overnight camps and sleepaway programs are available at select locations nationwide, for students ages 10–18. 

Meals

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included. At most locations, meals will be provided in the university dining halls.

Roommates

Sleepaway summer camp students have the option to request a specific roommate upon registration. If no roommate is specified, we will make every effort to room each student with another camper near their age. Boys and girls will typically be housed on separate floors or opposite wings of the dormitory.

Safety & supervision

All iD Tech summer staff members have undergone multiple background checks and will be on hand to lead evening activities and supervise students throughout the night. Overnight, our staff is housed in the same dorm building as our students.

Optional weekends

At select iD Tech locations, students have the option to stay the weekend between camp sessions.

Benefits of overnight camp

Sleepaway camp at iD Tech could very well be the highlight of your student’s year! Kids & teens have the opportunity to:

Campers should bring:

  • Reusable water bottle

  • Comfortable clothing and shoes
  • A jacket or sweatshirt
  • Sunscreen
  • Bathing suit
  • Spending money (optional)
  • Alarm clock
  • Fan
  • Multiple sets of socks, undergarments, etc.

Regarding electronic devices:

While you are not required to bring any electronic devices to camp, we know you might want to bring your smartphone, laptop, iPad, or gaming console. We recommend keeping these items locked in your dorm, or zipped up in your backpack, both for safety, and so you can get the most out of camp! If you decide to leave your devices at home, you can use the iD Tech computers to send emails to your family. Our Camp Directors will notify parents of any emergencies or bouts of homesickness—nothing is more important than our students’ safety and comfort.
