Using your own PC laptop, we present 6 topics over 4 sessions, complete with hands-on exercises. Wi-Fi and Web browsing, Know your Laptop, Word Processing and Filing, Maintenance and Safe Computing, Email, Open Session Q&A. Your laptop must have Windows 7 or Vista – no Windows 8, no XP, and no Macintosh.

Comments from Last Year‘s Attendees

I learned more in these past couple days than in the past ten years of using a computer.

Everything you taught us seemed so simple and basic, yet I didn’t know any of it!  I was doing everything the hard way.

I feel so empowered now!  I can understand what my kids are saying when they talk about computers.

Fill in the Gaps
If you want to be more proficient with your computers, attend our  hands-on boot camp.  The teaching is geared to beginners but not complete beginners – you need to already be comfortable with the mouse and minimizing/maximizing/closing windows. We find that people who have used their computers for years learn a lot as well.  This is for Windows-based computers – either Windows 7 or Windows Vista, no XP or Macintosh.

The materials for the class include a printed workbook and a DVD of tutorial videos.

The pre-Escapade workshop begins June 28, 2013 with the first session at 1 pm and continues thru Sunday Morning, with lots of fun time in-between!
Participants may arrive on the Camplex between 8 am and 12 am Friday,
June 28, and remain parked in their full hook up site for the duration of Camp
Re-Boot and Escapade. To register for this event, please call Kim in
Livingston at 1-888-757-2582. Don’t delay….as the workshop is limited to only 16 registrations! ($139.00 for a single or couple with one laptop using Windows 7 or Vista)

We picked topics that we consider the most important foundation for any computer user.  Each topic consists of 3 parts 1)demonstration 2)hands-on assignment; 3)review.

Topics covered include:

  • Know your computer; make & model, operating system, hard drive size, memory size, support website, shutdown and sleep options, what to do when things go wrong
  • How to write a letter with software on every computer (WordPad), save it, and find it again.  How to print it on someone else’s printer if you don’t have one by copying it to a USB drive.
  • File Management, using Windows Explorer, folder structures, finding files, copying and moving files, identifying file types.
  • How to backup important files to CD, and keep your computer clean and safe
  • How to Use WiFi to get online and browse, search, set up favorites.
  • How to access your email using webmail.  Email ‘netiquette.’

This is for Windows-based computers – either Windows 7 or Windows Vista – sorry, we can’t include any Windows 8, XP or Macintosh.

A ‘topic’ consists of 3 parts 1)demonstration 2)hands-on assignment; 3)review.
You bring your own (Windows-based) laptop computer. The price includes instruction from both Jim and Chris Guld (Geeks on Tour), an exercise workbook, a DVD of video tutorials. and we encourage attendees to become members on the Geeks on Tour website.  That way, they can watch more tutorial videos and ask questions in our forum.  The learning continues!

  1. Would love to attend. What if you sign up and for emergency reasons can not make it. How many a year do you have and where? Sounds like a very valuable, usable session.

  2. When? 9-14-2012?

    And where???

    I learned a lot from you in one morning and would be interested in attending this if we can make the Escapade.
