DMA SNAPshot: We Love Our Summer Staffers!

By Phill Powell

It takes a lot to operate a huge summer tech camp like Digital Media Academy. There are university locations and student accommodations to arrange. Not to mention all the high-tech equipment and the latest versions of today’s leading software programs.

At DMA, we stand behind our summer support staff, as you can plainly see.

But more than anything else, a tech camp runs on people, and we’re very fortunate each summer to work with outstanding young people who serve DMA as youth activities counselors, teaching assistants and in other key roles.

So this week’s DMA SNAPshot pays tribute to our summer support staff. They’re usually in such a constant state of motion that we’re a little surprised the camera could catch them!

TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE

STAFFED TO PERFECTION

It takes a world-class tech camp to deliver top-notch instructional value along with an unmatched summer-camp experience. At DMA, we know that our people make the difference.

At DMA, kids (ages 6-12) and teens (12-17) discover the coolest tech subjects, like getting to learn app development, which you can use to make way-cool games and apps for your iPhone or iPad.
