HOUSTON,TX - When you think of summer camp, computer programming may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but the kids at iDTech's camp don't want to be any place else.

Kenn Gorman, iDTech's Houston Camp Director explained, "Anything from building a game to recreating a game to programming. We even have robotics and we started a new program with arduinos, they're small little compact computers that the kids will be building and programming."

Kids aged 7-17 take part in these week-long iDTech camps that take place at University of Houston.

Jason Colon who is taking part in the camp said, "I have introduced a new item and a new mob and I've customized both of them to have interactions with the game that no other item has."

Some of you may not have a clue what he's talking about and may consider these kids geeks.

"It is somewhat accurate for the camp to be quite honest, and if you enjoy this kind of thing then you'll fit in quite easily," added Colon

Kids and teens that may shape the future of game programming.

"I've always wanted to do some kind of computer programming related career in my life and I knew that helping my knowledge of how to use JAVA in games and designing games and stuff like that would be a really good asset to me," according to Colon

Having fun and still learning something, what a concept!!
