RCE Computer Camp a Success!

July 19, 2001. At RCE Computer Camp, children between the ages of 7-12 are learning computer skills. Campers are learning how to use computer drawing techniques and tools to make images, backgrounds and designs. Students are designing T-shirts, cups, key-chains, posters, buttons, and magnets.

Campters are downloading clipart, sound files, and photographs, and learning how to use these files to make animated PowerPoint slide-shows, complete with sound. They are learning how to use a scanner to make images in their presentations. Advanced students learn how to create graphs and charts with and without animation and how to create sound files.

Wrights Create Community Challenge

Pete and Pam Wright of Wrightslaw and Harbor House Law Press, advocates for children with disabilities, expressed a desire to help children attend computer camp.

After speaking with Mrs. Mia Swan, program coordinator, Pete and Pam Wright wanted to gain additional support from the community.

Pete and Pam Wright created a web-crafted challenge, the Deltaville Community Challenge. Wrightslaw and Harbor House Law Press askesd local businesses to sponsor a child for the RCE Computer Camp. In just a few days, six more scholarships were available. Eight businesses gave a full scholarship for a deserving child to attend computer camp.

Local Businesses Contribute Scholarships

Because several area businesses contributed scholarships, computer camp is full.

Mrs. Swan said, “When I started this camp, I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough participants for one session. Many children wanted to go to camp but their families just couldn’t afford it. These scholarships enabled more children to attend camp."

"Next year, I would like more children to have this opportunity. With financial help, more children can attend camp. Computer camp is one way to make learning computer skills fun. Words can not express the gratitude I feel for the community support in making the RCE Computer Camp a success!”

A special thanks to these businesses and individuals who sponsored children for the 2001 RCE Computer Camp: Wrightslaw, Harbor House Law Press, Chesapeake Electric Company, FMA Publishing and Printing, The Galley Restaurant, Helen Edwards Real Estate-Isabel K. Horsely Real Estate, and Virginia Darr from Fairfax, Virginia.

Appreciation also goes to Mr. Mike Myers, acting Superintendent of Schools, and Mrs. Kathy Krom, principal of Rappahannock Central Elementary School, for supporting the Computer Camp initiative.
