Keyboarding for Kids!!

Keyboarding is becoming more and more of a standard skill needed and used regularly. The goal of this camp is to provide a comfortable and receptive environment where children can acquire these keyboarding skills. Being familiar and comfortable with typing can aid with concentration, reduce the stresses associated with school work and assist the child in recognizing and identifying his/her own accomplishments. This camp will teach keyboarding technique, accuracy and speed, use software that engages the student and reinforces continued practice, include lessons, games, and exercises and much, much, more!!
