Coral Gables, FL, (PRWEB) April 13, 2006
Florida is known for summer with its beautiful beaches, dolphins and summer heat. But, did you know that hundreds of kids, ages 7-17, are spending part of their summer learning about computers, tech, robotics and more at the hottest Florida summer camp, iD Tech Camps, at the University of Miami campus?
These campers still enjoy the summer sun in Miami with breaks throughout the day to play capture the flag, partake in water games or go swimming in the University of Miami pool. Many of these campers enjoy learning about technology and living the dorm life so much that they forgo the beach for a few weeks and choose the overnight option. Carlos, a past Florida summer camper said, “Overnight camp rocks! With a taste of the dorm life and extended time to work on projects or play games, what's not to love?”
On the west coast beaches, in Northern and Southern California, iD Tech Camps offers a surf and tech program at the University of Santa Cruz and Pepperdine University. This hybrid surf and computer camp is the coolest camp idea in two of the hottest surf spots in the world. The campers spend half the day in the computer lab and the other half learning to surf on the famous shores of Malibu or Santa Cruz.
Lazy summers in both Florida and California, “hanging out at the beach”, has changed the past few years with the introduction of iD Tech Camps. Children can still enjoy the summer sun surfing or playing water games, but can now also improve their technology skills at the same time. Maybe, Ann, a parent of a University of Miami camper summarized her son’s Florida summer camp experience the best. “My son got up joyfully every day of camp except for the last day when he was sad that his iD Tech Camps experience was over!”
