Students Hone Their Computer Skills at Camp

Stanford University's Academic Computing group has partnered with Cybercamps, a technology education enterprise, to offer curriculum programs for high school and incoming college students. The one-week sessions will offer detailed instructions for state-of-the-art computer applications such as multimedia programs, digital video, programming, computer presentations and Web page development. The program is designed to supplement and expand on the offerings of high school computer instruction. A number of full scholarships are available for underprivileged students and student-teacher teams.

Cybercamps provides technology education throughout the U.S., offering six progressive curriculums for students of all abilities. The campus-based programs guarantee a computer for each camper, a 6 to 1 camper to staff ratio, and a safe and supervised environment for all ages. Campers receive free e-mail, free Web hosting, and free project storage. Overnight camp and day camp options are both available.

Campers can choose one focus area per week of Cybercamp. Focus areas include Cyber Basics, Web Design, 3-D Animation, Programming, Multimedia, and Robotics. The programs offer well-rounded schedules that include activities such as swimming, scrapbook creation, team building activities, and field trips. Cybercamps, Kirkland, WA, (888) 904-CAMP,
