  • 2018 Summer Camp Reviews

    Summer 2018 Review: She loved this camp, because despite being shy and reluctant to try new things/meet new people, she knows when she goes to this camp she will be with "her people" (people who really like video games). I love this camp because the staff is diverse, committed, very efficient and organized, and they can clearly articulate what they are teaching the campers. Age of child: almost 10 What would you change about the program, if anything? I would love it if there was a way for kids to keep in touch afterward. My daughter gets kind of attached.
  • Review from the 2017 PSP Summer Camp Survey

    This is the second year that my son attended this camp. He took a YouTube video production class and learned a lot of skills in one week. He had fun every day but wished there had been more time to work on his project. If you could change anything, what would it be? I think it's over-priced for what they offer--it's around $1000 for one week and that's with discounts. It ends at 3pm on Friday and they have a 'graduation ceremony' where they hand out certificates in a hallway area at CU that could be better organized and give parents a better sense that their money was well spent. Age of child: 11 Based on a Summer 2017 experience
  • Fw: Programming Summer Camp? [PSP Tweens Group]

    ID Tech has several locations too, including at NYU. I personally find them to be way corporate, and they exploit the lack of tech education in the city. SO expensive! If NYC were on par with some other cities in the country, we might not be so dependent on private for-profit institutes for our middles schoolers. But studies show that middle school is the right age to introduce science and technology. ID Tech offers more programming classes, including arduino, computer, and apps, and the instructors are good. Don't be afraid of the minecraft either. Kids can actually use code to actually introduce new objects into the game.
  • Fw: Programming Summer Camp? [PSP Tweens Group]

    My son went to ID Tech Camp at Columbia University where my husband works. It was very expensive, even with the employee discount. My son LOVED it and learned a lot by taking a class where he learned JavaScript via Minecraft. They invited the parents to see the work the kids completed and I was impressed with the project he did in one week. He wants to go back this year, but I don't think we can pay that outrageous fee again. If you can make the one-time splurge, I do recommend it.
  • Summer Computer Camps offers computer camps at various NY locations. I enrolled my 12 yo daughter in the Minecraft mod at NYU last session. She attended one day before being diagnosed with strep throat. They were great about it and offered me a credit to use this summer. I can't speak to the quality of the camps, yet, but am very happy with the ease of enrolling and how well they handled our sudden departure last summer. You may want to check out the course offerings/campus locations (they have camps across the U.S.) and solicit other parent reviews to see if it's a good option for your family.

    Camp ID Tech Camp New York Institute of Technology Day Care or Sleep Away-- Day Camp Program: RPG Game Design & Graphic Arts Hybrid Age of Child: 11 Likes: My son loved spending time on the computer creating his own video game. He also learned a little about graphics and created a case for his game. There was a lot of individual attention and the teachers/counselors knew all the kids in the program .. several other classes were running at the same time but they new them all ... There was a "graduation" style ceremony and very nice things were said aloud by the teachers about each and every kid - in front of all the parents. What would you change? We paid for lunch - as both ID tech and I thought there would be a cafeteria but instead they took the kids to one of three places ... it was fine -but my son had a cheeseburger and fries every single day. Would you send your child(ren) again? Yes Do you recommend? Highly recommend Do you have any other information to add? Review from 2012 Summer Camp Experience
