Instructor (Former Employee) – Georgetown – February 2, 2016
I enjoyed working at iD Camp in the summer of 2015. Even though some weeks were stressful managing 10-12 year olds, I always loved seeing how much progression the kids made in 1 week. Doing the overnight part allowed me to do really fun camp activities with the campers that I may not have had time to do in the day. The only downside to this job is that if you do overnight, then its hard to allocate outside of work free time because you only really get a 1 1/2 day weekend. Other than that the pay was great, the management was great and my co-workers became my good friends.
Satisfaction, Free food, Co-Workers, Fun Activities, Interesting Students
Instructor (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – May 26, 2015
I worked as an instructor for iD Tech Camps during Summer 2013 and Summer 2014. I worked for six consecutive weeks each summer, and stayed at the camp location overnight and over the weekends. Each week, each instructor taught a class of eight campers. Classes were focused on technology and game design. At the end of the week, the campers received a diploma and showed their parents everything they learned. Most campers are day campers, but some stay overnight for extra activities.
My managers and my co-workers were all excellent. iD Tech Camps does an exceptional job of fostering a fun and positive culture. Teaching the campers and making a difference was very rewarding, and the job as a whole was a lot of fun.
An engaging and rewarding place to learn and teach game design
Lead Instructor (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – September 4, 2012
A typical day of work involved organizing campers for three meals a day and effectively teaching them difficult concepts of both level and game design. Additionally, it entailed ensuring other instructors had what they needed to teach their respective classes effectively. The management was also very receptive and open to suggestions and were extremely adaptable. The hardest part of the job was teaching in a very loud, crowded room. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing kids genuinely understand and enjoy creating their own levels and actively seek out more information.
ability to teach and do what i love, very receptive management
Lead Instructor (Former Employee) – Winter Park, FL – October 14, 2014
During my summer breaks I worked at iD Tech Camps. As Lead Instructor at Rollins College this summer, I designed the curricula and taught Mobile App Design, RPG creation, Minecraft Level Design and similar classes. I strove to maintain a high energy and positive environment throughout all hours of the day at this overnight camp, designing and leading many activities from scavenger hunts to competitive team tournaments, and working with wonderful co-workers to make it possible. Our higher ups, the regional managers, did a great job in helping us however we can, and the reward of a smiling camper with a project you helped him make was the best part of the job. The hours were long, and there was little time to relax, but it truly was a labor of love.

If you don't mind kids and being paid to act foolish, this is the best job ever. Not only is iD a great place to work if you have no summer plans, but hard work is rewarded and the people, even corporate, are great to work with which can be very rare these days.
The only downside is the time it will take out of your schedule, especially if you don't commute, but the paycheck and friends you'll make are worth it by far.
everything is paid for so your paycheck is actually more than just the number
work with others passionate about video game development, influence the future of game devs
