Campbell, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2007
iD Tech Camps, a leading provider of summer technology camps, announces the introduction of a new blog authored by their CEO Pete Ingram-Cauchi. Since it's inception in 1999, iD Tech Camps has continued to run the most recommended summer computer camps in the country. Along with a focus on teaching technology, the iD Tech Camps blog succeeds at giving campers and parents up to date information on upcoming camp offerings and new camp trends, as well as allowing campers to get to know the CEO on a more personal level through his new blog. The driving force behind the blog was to allow people to get a behind-the-scenes look at iD Tech Camps and help to inform others on how and why the company and its camps are successful.
The new blog supports iD Tech Camps' commitment to keeping a family atmosphere present at the camps. Pete's entries are a combination of educational and fun information, which is more than one would expect from a typical tech related blog. Sharing his personal life with previous and future campers and parents allows them to learn more about Pete and the iD Family. Readers will learn about new curriculum, the introduction of Guitar Hero and even about Pete's adventures with his young son during their family vacation in Argentina.
"I don't just SAY that the campers and staff are my extended family, but rather, I want them to FEEL like they really are. One way to do that is to open up to them through this blog," explains Pete.
In addition to letting readers learn about his family and his company's philosophy, Pete also introduces readers to iD Tech Camps employees in the blog. Whether it be by sharing pictures of employee's Halloween costumes or a fun internal email, Pete wants to acknowledge his incredible corporate and summer staff. He also uses the blog to recognize his staff that have volunteered in their community, an initiative that is common and encouraged within the company.
As a family company, iD Tech Camps has raised the bar in regards to risk management, quality staff, customized curriculum, as well as good old-fashioned fun. iD Tech Camps employs an all adult staff (no Counselors In Training) to maintain a 6:1 student to staff ratio introducing new locations and supporting curriculum each year. The summer computer camps take place at 50 prestigious universities nationwide, including summer camps at Stanford, MIT, UCLA, Northwestern, Vassar, Columbia, Emory, UT Austin, the University of Cádiz (Spain) and many other campuses.
As evidenced by the blog, one of the main goals of Pete's company is to maintain a friendly and intimate camp atmosphere. Pete has and will continue to touch on many other aspects of life in general in his blog, which relate to iD Tech Camps summer camps and corporate and summer staff.
