We've been considering putting together a 'How To Run A Computer
Camp' kit for some time now, as we have had intermittent interest
from other states (Tasmania and New South Wales at one stage, I
believe). We're also considering branching out into doing a primary
school camp (probably year 5-7) in the future.
I personally would like to see such a kit happen - I believe it could
be a very valuable tool. We are slowly working towards such a thing
for our own internal use, and some of our innovations are apparently
now widespread within Scripture Union. There is much more to running
a camp like this than simply the technical material, although that
does take up the bulk of the time before camp, and of course,
adequate technical expertise does help.
If LA would be willing to assist us in preparing such a kit, I feel
that it would be welcome in the camp community - although of course I
would have to discuss it with the leaders before going ahead with
such a project.
Would donating DIRECTLY to your upper sponsor give tax benefits, i.e.
are they a charity as well as a not for profit organisation?
