DO-IT Camps 2000

June 21, 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:

The Washington camps are supported with funds from the State of Washington. Camps outside of Washington are supported with grants from the National Science Foundation (grant #HRD 9800324), Microsoft, and the JELD-WEN Foundation.

If you are interested in attending any of these camps, please contact the camp directly. If you know of camps that serve students with disabilities and who would like to incorporate Internet and/or college or work preparation into their programs, contact the DO-IT office.
