Featuring
the
International Computer Drivers License

http://www.icdl.ca

The International Computer Driving License (ICDL) establishes a basic standard for computer literacy. It is a qualification that verifies a person's computer competence.

Canadian educators, employers and job seekers agree on the need for a standard definition of practical computer competence in Information Technology.

The concept is governed internationally by a Foundation based in Ireland, which updates the standard regularly and monitors the licensees worldwide. Already 1.25 million Skills Cards have been issued around the world, with a 90% increase in new participants expected this year.

ICDL Canada is an exciting initiative for computer literacy in Canada. Responding to the need for a uniform 'base qualification' in computing skills, The International Computer Driving License™ is a certificate verifying computer user skills in both the home and office environment. The concept is governed internationally by a Foundation based in Ireland, which updates the standard regularly and monitors the licensees worldwide. The Information Technology Association of Canada and the Canadian Information Processing Society have endorsed ICDL Canada.

General Information  Each camper is given an individual self-paced curriculum. The camper's time is split between learning and working with us in our computer shop to build, service, upgrade and repair computers.

The learning portion takes place in our Learning Center. We have hundreds of professionally produced, interactive, self-paced tutorials. There is a complete catalog of these tutorials at www.duncans.ca. We cover every important aspect of today's computing world. Each of our campers can choose what interests them personally from the thousands of hours of learning available.

Complimenting the learning/working experience, the camper is meeting other young computer enthusiasts who are always anxious to share their knowledge and expertise.

Our camp counselors are A+ Certified Computer Candidates and Professionals. They range in age from 12 to 19 years old. They are very experienced in computer construction, Windows operating system concepts, networking techniques and web site administration.

Campers are able to take a supervised break any time they wish. There is a Klein’s Food Market in the shopping center so they can purchase snacks. We have a small lunchroom with a fridge and a microwave and these are available for use by our campers.

If a camper misses a day, they may make this day up at any mutually convenient time.

 

                    Camp Activities
    As every individual camper comes to us with different computer expertise and interests, we quickly evaluate a good starting point for them, and then we navigate them through a series of activities, designed to fill in the basics, expand their interests, and then let them have some fun.

   Here is a partial list of camp activities broken down by suitable time. Naturally none of this is cast in stone. We are very prepared to be as flexible as possible. Often we find that we have to work hard to keep up with our campers learning progress. We are always startled by our campers' abilities, and we know they like to be continually challenged.
