Camp fun is just a click away
4-H'ers at the Yellowstone/Stillwater 4-H Camp pose for photographer Shannon Sharp.
The memories of camping last long after the campfire is out for those who attend the Yellowstone/Stillwater County 4-H Camp. On the last day of camp each year, 4-H'ers and their families watch a slide show program featuring photos of all the camp participants. Later, campers can relive their memorable experiences just by going to a special web site and viewing their own camp photos.
The "official" camp photographer is Shannon Sharp, Stillwater County camp coordinator and leader of the Springcreek Stockgrowers 4-H Club in Absarokee. Shannon has a digital camera which stores pictures on CD. She uses a laptop computer and a projector to present the 3-foot by 5-foot slide show.
"I think digital technology is still so new that most people do not realize how simple it is," says Shannon. "When I take the pictures, I try to catch every camper, so that their family will get a better idea of the fun that happens at camp."
When camp is over, Shannon uses the MyFamily web site to post approximately 300 photos of campers and leaders. A small annual fee is charged by the web site.
"The MyFamilyweb site is very easy and allows for great privacy. The only way to access the website is to have a password which is given to all campers on the last day of camp," says Shannon. Campers can also print their photos from the web and share them with friends and family.
Shannon, a former 4-H'er who did projects in yeast breads and belly dancing, says she plans to continue her photography work. "I really enjoy taking the pictures of the kids and leaders," she says.
The Yellowstone/Stillwater County 4-H Camp is located at the Beartooth Mountain Christian Ranch near Dean, Montana.
