Summer. It’s a time for decisions. Should I send my child to summer camp? If so, which one? And, how do I find that perfect opportunity for my child? These are questions that vex parents around this time every single year.
It’s not an easy problem to solve, but, there are steps you can take to make the process a bit easier.
For instance, summer camp by its very nature can be a life-changing experience. Then, when you pair that experience with a topic your kids or teens already enjoy, you’ve got a winning combination.
Take technology, for example. Video games, apps, social media, and more. We can safely say most kids get some enjoyment from these things, right? So then, the next step is just finding the camp to match.
Enter iD Tech, the #1 summer tech camp for kids and teens; a family-owned company with programs held at Queens College, Adelphi, NYIT, and 150+ locations nationwide.
Although I haven’t personally sent the kids here…yet, my friend sent her then 8 year old to this camp and they both absolutely LOVED it! I think that’s reassurance enough that this is a camp to check out.
Students at iD Tech get hands-on experience in coding, game development, robotics, and design, taking their interests further and building in-demand skills for college, internships, and dream careers.
So there. Decision made.
Need some extra reassurance?
No worries. Here are five more reasons why iD Tech is your ideal summer camp solution.
- It’s Not Just Daycare
Camps have changed a lot since the days of making leather bracelets and canoeing. Still great activities, don’t get me wrong, but now summer is used by many to supplement the skills kids aren’t learning in school. STEM camps like iD Tech teach real-world skills, inspiring students early on to start transforming interests from hobbies to potential college majors, and even long-term careers.
- STEM Skills = Bright Future
By sending your child to a STEM summer camp, you’re preparing them for a future that is predicted to be full of available, high-paying jobs. At iD Tech, kids and teens can choose from over 50 innovative courses. No matter their skill level, they’re taking the first step towards a brighter future.
For example, do they want to learn how to write code? There’s a summer camp course (many courses, actually) for that. By acquiring such knowledge, students find themselves ahead of their peers when it comes to creating computer programs, apps, and more.
Your child’s future is bright—STEM skills are like sunglasses that take care of the glare, allowing students to more easily find their paths.
- The Experience Keeps Kids & Teens “Charged Up” All Summer Long
Have you heard of “summer brain drain?” Also known as “summer learning loss,” it’s a real phenomenon that affects kids and teens all over the world. One way to avoid it? Keep kids engaged and their brains stimulated through the summer with the right camps.
When you send your student to a program like iD Tech, the skills they learn can develop into something greater, and can also keep them motivated throughout the summer, keeping their minds sharp for the return to school.
- It’s Truly Inspirational!
Remember that one teacher who went out of their way to help make you successful? Well, that’s the goal of the staff at iD Tech. Course instructors make it their mission to create an unforgettable summer for your kid or teen. With real-world experience in the subjects they teach – and a firm grasp of the latest meme’s and all things viral – iD Tech instructors mentor and connect with students in ways many teachers can’t, given the fun, personalized camp atmosphere.
- iD Tech Isn’t Like School or Any Other Camp
iD Tech is the largest and most trusted camp of its kind. The experience is enriching, empowering, and unlike any learning experience your child has ever had. You can count on fun subjects, guaranteed small class-sizes, hands-on projects, and all of the social camaraderie of summer camp.
So, should you send your child to summer camp? Yes, without a doubt. Should you send them to iD Tech? We hope the points above help you make your decision.
I know many of you are in a situation where you’re unsure where to send your rising middle schooler because they’re beginning to age out of the traditional camps. Well I think we have an answer here. Camps are for those ages 7 – 19 and….there’s even a camp just for girls! Winning!
