On the whole, kids spend far more time on the Web than their parents. In fact, much of their schoolwork takes place on the Internet. The library is quickly becoming a distant second on the list of places kids visit to conduct research for their papers. The Web provides students with quick access to information on an endless number of subjects. Many people see this as a problem, and the Internet has clearly had both positive and negative effects on the youth of today, but they continue to learn from it and many even have the desire to find a Web-based career in the future.

Most new jobs that are created in America are in the technology field. Even though the dotcom boom has come and gone, there are still new tech companies appearing every year. Also, businesses of all kinds need people who are highly skilled with computers. This has led many parents to look past the downside of computers and to focus on the benefits.

Where Can Kids Learn Web Design?

Web design is one of the largest growing fields in the world. Companies of all sizes have begun to do business on the Internet. They know that a website that looks good, sounds good, functions smoothly, and is easy to use can bring in business.

There are a number of camps that will get kids involved in every aspect of web design. Campers will learn how to create text, image maps, scrolls, and much more. They will also get to use authoring tools like Dreamweaver in order to create imaginative web designs.

Any child can get something out of a camp that offers web design. They will learn how to publish their own websites and they will get to interact with other campers in a number of activities. Even if they never go into a computer-related field, they can still take something special away from the camp experience.
