In case it snuck up on you, school is out this week (or next for some). Are you ready? Are the kids already whining they have nothing to do? Why not keep them occupied and their brainpower fully engaged by signing up for summer camp? But not just any summer camp — we’re talking the top STEM summer camp in Denver. It’s called iD Tech and MHOTC has an exclusive discount.
Sure there are dozens, if not hundreds, of summer camps in the Denver-Boulder area. But iD Tech is different. Students ages 7 to 17 learn to code, design video games, mod Minecraft, create with Roblox, engineer robots, print 3D characters, work with AI, build laptops, design Fortnite-inspired games, learn about cybersecurity, and more.
iD Tech is the only summer tech program that’s been trusted by the top universities on the planet for nearly two decades. In our area, that means you’ll find camps at University of Denver, Mile High Academy and CU Boulder. Here’s a full list of locations.
