Sample Day

7:30am: Overnight Campers, rise and shine! Eat breakfast in the campus dining hall—breakfast is typically all-you-can-eat, and consists of favorites such as sausages, pancakes, orange juice, cereal, waffles, and fruit.

8am-9am: Check-in. All Campers meet for morning announcements, ice breakers, and team-building activities.

9:30am: Split into course groups and let the tech fun begin! Breaks are taken at the discretion of each instructor. Younger students will take more frequent breaks.

12pm: Lunch time—head to the dining hall if you’re on the iD Meal Plan. Depending on the policy of each university, students who bring their own bag lunch will either eat in the dining hall with the rest of the crew, or laze under a shady tree outside with an iD instructor.

1pm: Back to the labs!

2:30pm: A game of Ultimate Frisbee, anyone? Capture the flag? Gaming tournaments? Board games? Optional sports? We offer many summer camp activities that vary by week and location. Beyond STEM skill development, students will socialize, make friends, and have fun.

3:30pm: Return to the labs. Let’s create!

5pm: Wrap-up your projects for the day.

5pm-6pm: Pick-up time for Day Campers.

How We Teach | Personalized Instruction

Our tech curriculum is based on a blended learning strategy. We couple live one-on-one instruction with iD Game Plan, our innovative learning engine, to provide you with properly paced learning. Most of our courses at iD Tech Camps are for beginner through advanced students.

All-Adult Staff

Our entire staff is comprised of adults ages 18 and over. We do not hire Counselors-in-Training (CITs) at our summer technology camps. We believe you learn best from adults who have mastered their technology skills. Some of our instructors are tech industry professionals. Others are graduate and undergraduate students majoring in the fields of Computer Science, Computer Engineering, App Design, Film, and other related fields. We’re extremely selective when it comes to our camp staff.

Other Activities

At iD Tech Camps, balance is very important. Our courses are fun and engaging, and completely unlike school. We want you to develop genuine passion for STEM subjects, and keep coming back year after year. If it's not fun—and if you don't learn a lot—we know you won't return. You can expect roughly 5 hours a day of instruction, with plenty of time for supervised breaks, social time, outdoor play, optional sports, video games, and other creative techtivities. (Jump to Sample Day for additional details.) Many clients describe the total iD Tech experience as "magical" and "unlike anything else." We work hard to make the experience unique, memorable, and valuable.

3D Modeling & Animation Camp Reviews

  • "My son really seemed to enjoy the iD Tech Camps experience. It was a great environment for him where he really fit in and learned a lot of useful information. Way to make the summer a great success. Thanks, iD Tech Camps!"
    - Gina F., Parent, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "Attending iD Tech Camps for the past two years has allowed my normally introverted daughter to express herself positively among campers with interests similar to hers."
    - Theresa M., Parent, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "My son looked forward to coming to this camp every day, even though it meant getting up early over summer vacation. It was great to be exposed to professional 3D modeling software and be instructed by an actual animator. Very nice experience."
    - Jayna M., Parent, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "My son seemed to really enjoy Maya and his instructor's teaching style. I am very happy to see him excel in the application."
    - Kevin C., Parent, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "My son was barely through the first day before he remarked that he would love to return. I found everyone to be genuinely friendly. I was pleased with every portion of the program from the safety passwords implemented, to the curb side pick up. I actually think "flawless" best describes this camp."
    - Michael W., Parent, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • Maya is complicated but really fun to use once you get the hang of the basics."
    - Brenden D., Student, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "I loved this camp because of the type of technology and experience of the counselors. It let me get ahead of my peers with using Maya. This camp is the best technology-based camp that I have ever been to."
    - Marques S., Student, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "This course really helped me improve my skills with Maya. Thanks to this course, I know how to attach joints to models, use tools I have never used before, and render in many ways."
    - Christoper T., Student, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "The camp was great, and most, if not all of the classes can prepare you for jobs in different fields such as video games, software development and the entertainment industry. It's also a bunch of fun."
    - Madison R., Student, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
  • "I've learned and created more in a week in my Maya class than I have ever before!"
    - Matthew L., Student, 3D Modeling & Animation with Autodesk Maya
