Summer camp goes high tech
Times have changed a little for our kids at summer camp. They’ve come a long way from sewing leather wallets. ”It’s very nontraditional because, well for one, it’s mostly indoors.
There’s air conditioning and we’re on computers,” says Rebecca Hibbert, ID Tech Camp counselor. ”We do computer programming, game creation, robotics, web design and film making.”
Welcome to ID Tech Camp at the University of Denver.
The high tech summer camp is for kids 7 to 17 years of age. It costs $1,000 and is one week long. And the campers can actually spend the night. Sorry, no campfires.
Besides just having fun, they’re learning critical computer skills which Rebecca Hibbert says will last a lifetime.
Reporter Dan Daru had a little extra fun at the camp.
He decided to ask several campers if they knew the most important skill one could possibly learn at summer camp: the recipe for s’mores. They said no.
We’re not worried, though, we’re sure there is an app for that.
