Tech Camp: It’s for Everybody
We understand—the words “tech camp” can be scary for those who haven’t built their own robot or created their own video game. Don’t worry. Our Camp Directors come from all backgrounds: teachers, engineers, artists, grad students, physical therapists. The best Camp Directors are natural leaders, problem solvers, and organizational wizards who love mentoring a talented staff—a team of instructors who delivers their technical knowledge to excited campers. You get to be the face of iD Tech to hundreds of students and parents. You create an environment of serious learning and raucous fun for kids ages 6-18. Sounds like an amazing way to spend your summer, right?
Life of a Camp Superhero
From coordinating with university officials to taking a pie to the face, there is no typical day at iD Tech. Camp Directors create a FUN, SAFE environment, while ensuring high-level instruction for all students. Scroll through to get a glimpse of our heroes in action.
