[3:30 PM] Washington MUG (WAP) To Hold Mac Computer Camp For Teens
by Staff

Washington Apple Pi has announced a great summer camp for teens. The Mac User Group will be holding a Mac computer camp in Maryland this summer. According to Washing Apple Pi:

Washington Apple Pi announces it is now taking reservations for its summer computer camp for teens. "This is a great camp for any teen who wants to really make the family Macintosh work at home, school, and on the Internet," says WAP President Lorin Evans. "It is an intensive, fun course that is packed with information presented in as non-technical a fashion as possible." Instructor Pat Fauquet says "When the student is done with the WAP Summer Camp, he or she will be able to take on almost any computer-related project with confidence and succeed - maybe, even get better grades!"

The camp will be held at the WAP office:

12022 Parklawn Drive
Rockville, MD 20852
(301) 984-0300

The Summer Camp is a two-week computer camp for teenagers. It will be held from Monday, July 24 through August 4, 9:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m. (Monday-Friday)

Short Overview:

This is a hands-on camp heavy on fun and light on technobabble. Each camper will:

  • Brush-up on Macintosh skills
  • Master advanced user techniques
  • Learn to use video, sound, graphic equipment, and related applications
  • Master applications for developing Web pages
  • Design, build, and manage an appealing personal Web page
  • Learn Sherlock search technology for home and school use
  • Learn how to network computers
  • Learn to operate a Macintosh in a multi-platform environment

Each final Web page design will be posted on the Washington Apple Pi Web site for 30 days so everyone can see what has been accomplished by the student.

Commercial applications that will be used during the session:

  • Macintosh operating system, Mac OS 9
  • AppleWorks
  • Adobe PhotoDeluxe
  • Adobe PageMill
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • QuickTime 4.0
  • Claris Home Page 3.0
  • Adobe GoLive 4.0
  • MovieWorks
  • Netscape Navigator
  • Internet Explorer
  • Many different shareware and freeware applications and utilities will also
    be used.

You can find a lot more information on the camp at the WAP web site. The camp costs US$600 for the full two weeks.

The Mac Observer Spin: We know what almost every adult Mac user is thinking. 1.) Why didn't they have something like this when I was a kid, and 2.) I wish I could go do this myself because it sounds like fun! You will have to live vicariously through your kids. :-)

This does sound like a great camp that kids will enjoy.
