Do Something BIG! October 05, 2009
Reviewer: BMighty from
5 Stars 3 of 3 people found this review helpful

I was a Camp Instructor at iD Tech in the summer of 2008 and 2009. It was my pleasure teaching teens and pre-teens how to create their own video games in a safe, challenging, and FUN environment. The curriculum that is developed at iD Tech Camps helps break down the complicated software into easy to follow sections. I would recommend iD Tech to everyone that would like to challenge themselves to do something BIG!

This is one of the best experiences of my life. As a Camp Instructor I was able to teach teens and pre-teens how to use computers in a safe, challenging, and most of all FUN environment. The curriculum that is developed at iD Tech Camps helps break down complicated software into easy to follow sections. I would recommend iD Tech to everyone that would like to challenge themselves to do something BIG!

Solid Camp, my son looks forward to it every year. May 13, 2009

My son Sean went to iD Tech Camps and loved every minute of it. He went three years ago and again last summer. From the first day there we knew that it was going to be good for him. The instructors were knowledgeable but more importantly they really seemed to care about the kids and got them engaged. As its summer I was worried about them being inside all day but it was a pretty good mix. Granted they were inside for most of the day, they took breaks and also did outdoor activities. His second year was just as great. Since camp, he has been much more into technology and is teaching himself programming until he can go back to camp to take a course in it. We will definitely be back this summer.

Awesome Camp for our daughter June 01, 2008
Reviewer: Rudy04 from
5 Stars 4 of 4 people found this review helpful

Totally worth every penny! I was surprised my daughter loved it so much. She loves to play soccer and goes to a camp for it every summer as well. She is cutting it short to go back to iD this year which is saying a lot. The camp is on a university campus which I liked but our daughter really got a kick out of it. She learned to create a video game there in a week. i was impressed on the family day with how much she had learned. She had a game that she could play and has since taken it home and continued to work on it. My main reason I am ok with paying for camp this season (its not cheap but it is worth it) is the staff. They are awesome. From her point of view she thought they were cool and they knew what they were talking about. When we dropped her off we could see that it was well run and the staff seemed to know what they were doing. It was also nice to see her instructor was a girl as well. There were only about 4 other girls there and maybe 30 boys. One thing to think about but about half of the staff was female. Her instructor really did inspire her to keep learning about technology. She is looking to take a course where she creates her own website this year. She hasnít been this excited about computers ever; itís really cool to see. I recommend this camp to anyone who has a child that is interested in technology and having fun.
