Skill Level & Ages
Ultimate Gaming Weekends are a teen-specific weekend summer camp program for beginner through advanced gamers ages 12-17 at iD Tech Camps.
Not a serious gamer? No worries – we’ve got you covered. You can also play outdoor sports, relax in the labs, read a book, play retro games and much more. Come check out our multiplayer camp and MMORPG camps! This is a great weekend option to complement any iD summer camp for teenagers.
During open gaming time, you’ll be able to play the game you want, as much as you want. When you play our designated tournament game, you will have access to our online ranking ladder so you can share your top position with friends (and enemies) in real time! You’ll be able to check your ranking over the summer, so if you get displaced, you can sign up for another session and try to regain your throne!
Ultimate Gaming Weekends begin Friday immediately after camp ends and continue through Sunday at 6:00PM (pick-up is 4:00PM Sunday if you are not attending the upcoming week). Students attending the upcoming session of iD Tech Camps or iD Teen Academies will continue to game until activities for the next week begin. Gaming schedules will vary by location.
