Camp GTA is the best place to be!

At camp GTA we always try to have fun and focus on our activities to create a safe and fun environment, while teaching the kids leadership and social skills. We have lots of fun keeping in shape by doing outdoor activities along with creative related ones like Arts&Crafts and many other activities. We also have fun events where the camp groups get together and we participate in positive, fun activities and have BBQ’s. All of that amount to an awesome summer for kids where they learn important life skills, while having lots of fun and making friends!

Camp GTA: The Fun in Social Media

Camp GTA FOYT(Focus on Youth Toronto) has many great programs such as Social Media. Students are learning about how to promote and take advantage of one of the top social media websites. Websites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

A lot of students such as myself are loving this program. Not only the students are having fun, they’re also getting paid! This will motivate young teens and give them experience for future professional jobs. The students will undergo 2 days of training, 1 day of orientation, and  7 weeks of work. The rules of the workplace apply in general. If you are late there are no exceptions, you could get fired unless you have a legitimate reason as to why you are late.

Slider Post 1

This is a slider post! Notice the “Custom Fields” below – they are how you customize this slide. Essentially, all you NEED is the following:

1. featured_slide_img

The “featured_slide_img” custom field will allow you to enter a URL to the image of your choosing. Just upload it from the “Add Media” button above this text-editor and grab the File URL from the image. Remember it needs to be 940 x 284 px to fit into the slider.

Some optional things you can add:

2. featured_slide_caption – Quite simply, this field will add a basic text caption to the bottom of your image. No HTML, sorry! This version of the Nivo Slider doesn’t support that yet.

3. featured_slide_destination – Want this slide to link to somewhere? Add your destination URL here.

4. launch_this_in_a_lightbox – Want to launch a lightbox from the slide? Use this one instead of the “featured_slide_destination” and whatever link you put in there will load into a lightbox. Keep in mind there are limitations to this – it’s probably best to just link to images unless you are pretty comfortable with the prettyPhoto slider settings.
