iD Tech Camps: Cool Computer Camps

Creating websites, producing digital movies, programming iPhone and Facebook apps, designing 3-D animations and creating video games may sound intimidating. Not for twins Ross and Scott Padalino. At nine years old these twins learned and applied tech skills most adults find challenging. That’s what makes them a good example of the new generation of Digital Kids.


Digital Kids

You too can be a Digital Kid by signing up for a summer program called iD Tech Camps. Over 100,000 kids and teens have learned to create 2-D and 3-D video games, websites, digital movies, [kwlink23971]iPhone[/kwlink] and Facebook apps, robots, 3-D models and animations and more! If you’re between the ages of 7-17 you can attend this week-long, day and overnight summer program, located at 60 universities in Canada and 25 U.S. states!


Tech Twins

After taking a course in Game & Web Design, Ross and Scott decided to take their passion for technology further. They begged their parents to let them go back to iD Tech Camp in 2010 and take two more courses. But their mom told them they’d have to earn the money to pay for camp themselves. So they developed a website for a local company and were paid enough to cover their tuition next summer. And to top that off, they also got a contract to maintain the website!


Cool Computer Camps

iD Tech Camps has small class sizes of an average of six campers to staff. You’ll get to leave camp with a completed project, new tech skills and confidence going into the new school year. The instructors make learning fun and show how technology can impact the future. With so many opportunities for growth, the sky is the limit for these Digital Kids!

All hallows eve, Do not look, For I am the Night, the Night I am, The earth, I am, The air, I am, The fire, I am, The water, I am, Look me in my eye, And see the color of rainbows. I have seen both worlds, Of happiness and darkness, Neither is wrong,  On the Night when its thin, When the spirits can roam, I will be there for you, Through my Darkness.
