See how easy it is to have Summer Camp at Home thanks to a Virtual Tech Camp
Are you looking for summer activities? I know I am! This summer I am particularly looking for online camps and activities. I have three boys who love technology and are interested in coding, video game development, electric vehicles, and engineering. So what could be better than a Virtual Tech Camp?!
Summer camp probably looks different for a lot of families this summer. That’s where Virtual Tech Camp comes in. Camp is where kids feel free to try activities hands-on, develop new skills, and meet new people. iD Tech is offering its renowned STEM programs virtually, and at a discount, so families can continue safely supporting their children’s education with engaging lessons taught live by experts.
With this Virtual Tech Camp my kids are not only benefiting from education and skill advancement from experts during the summer break, but they are also getting safe, social interaction with kids who have similar STEM interests.
Each virtual tech camp is project-based, with a specific project completed by the end of camp. The twins are taking Make A YouTube Channel: Animations and Digital Shorts. Littlest is interested in Minecraft Modding. There are classes for ages ranging from 7 to 19 and include game design, coding, animation, machine learning, and 3D modeling. Virtual Tech Camps are for all skill levels. It’s fun and learning in the safety of your home.
Classes are grouped by age, and students receive 2 hours of live instruction per day. I signed the twins up for a weeklong session, that’s 5 consecutive days, Monday-Friday. Classes have 5 students max per instructor, with a blending personalized learning and team interaction.
iD Tech hires all-adult educators who go through meticulous background and reference checks. They recruit the same carefully-vetted talent sought by companies like Google, EA, Tesla, and Disney.
Parents receive personalized instructor feedback delivered via email so you can track your child’s success.
Now, what would summer camp be without a camp shirt? I used my vinyl cutter and some heat transfer vinyl to make my Virtual Tech Camp attendees their very own summer camp t-shirts. I went with sort of a traditional camp look, but they added a computer with the word camp in the center. After all, this is a tech camp where he is on the computer.
Don’t forget about lunch for your summer camp attendees either. I thought it would be fun to put together a finger food plate of fruits, veggies, cheese, and lunch meat. Something to enjoy before, after, or even during class.
What’s summer without summer camp? So many of our summer plans got cancelled this year, and I’m so glad for my kids to still have the opportunity to participate in a camp that feeds their passions.
