During Spring Break, we held volunteer planning sessions at TaborSpace that were very helpful in defining what needs to be done to launch App Camp. But the highlight of the week was our one-day mini-camp (aka Alpha, or Session 0). Three girls spent the day with volunteers Natalie Osten, Kelly Guimont and me (Jean), learning how to brainstorm and storyboard apps, and then seeing their ideas come to life on the iPhone.
It was an exciting day for the girls. Among the great survey comments: "I learned how to make an app, what it takes to make an app, how fun it is to make an app!" All three girls are all planning to attending App Camp (Beta) June 24 - 28.
And it was exciting day for the volunteers. As Kelly put it, "This is exactly what I dreamed App Camp would be like when we first started planning."
