Camp Tech contracts leading tech experts to teach workshops in their spare time. Camp Tech Instructors are professionals working in their fields with impressive portfolios of satisfied clients who place an emphasis on providing real-world advice to small business owners, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and people who work in marketing departments at small- or mid-sized organizations who choose to come back to Camp Tech classes again and again.
Camp Tech's Values
At Camp Tech, we measure success by our impact and our fulfillment of our core values, not by our revenue. Our core values are:
We understand that the learning curve with technology can be steep. We empathize with our students, and assist as best we can. We were all beginners once, and don’t forget what it feels like.
We care about the success of our students with regards to the topic they’re learning. If we don’t think someone can be successful with a topic in the format or style we’re delivering, we’ll change the format or we won’t teach it.
Knowledge is power. We understand that the distance between knowing and not knowing a technical skill can cause an inequality and a power imbalance. We strive to equalize that balance by sharing our knowledge with whoever wants to learn.
We like to have a good time at work. Not every day is perfect, but on the whole we like to have fun and create an enjoyable atmosphere for our staff and for our students. We believe people learn more when they’re enjoying themselves.
