DO-IT Camps 2000
Summer is right around the corner and for DO-IT that means camps, camps and more camps. The DO-IT Campers program serves to teach children and youth with disabilities how to use computers, send electronic mail, and locate resources on the World Wide Web; prepare for success in college and employment; and network with other students and adult mentors with disabilities. DO-IT Camper activities are incorporated into existing summer camp activities and are tailored to individual camp needs and styles.
This year, in addition to our involvement with camps in Washington, California, Idaho, Minnesota, and Colorado, we have formed new partnerships with camps in Florida, Oregon, Maryland and Wisconsin! Here are some of the camps where you can expect to find DO-IT this summer:
