A Brief Background:

Camp Internet is the Education Program of the Visible Light Distance Learning Consortium and the RAIN National Public Internet Network.

Camp Internet was one of the first Internet programs in the world to bring
K-12 students online. Beginning in 1992 students from 4th grade through High School were introduced to the Camp Internet curriculum.

In 1993, the Program was recognized by the National Science Foundation and RAIN Network initiated a† Pacific Rim international educational networking project that continues to this day with partners in China, Hawaii, Australia, Nepal, and Costa Rica.

In 1997, Camp Internet became a Technology Literacy Challenge Grant provider for the US and California Departments of Education, a project that saw Campís teacher training and curriculum delivered to over 350 classrooms under grants and private contracts. In 1998, Camp Internet also started serving rural classrooms under USDA Distance Learning funding and now works with classrooms in four states under USDA support, including Indian Schools for Native American students.

Camp Internet was honored to receive a Smithsonian Innovation Network Award for Education Technology and is now serving schools in the United States and abroad. Over 1000 teachers have received training, and over 25,000 students in classroom, afterschool and library settings have participated.
