The Amherst H. Wilder St. Croix Camps are located 25 miles east of Hinckley, Minnesota. The camps provide rehabilitative programming for both male and female juveniles referred by either social services or probation. One of the programming pieces consists of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug curriculum. During this project, the integration of technology and chemical dependency curriculum was explored. The computer program Alcohol 101 for Hish School provided students attending the on-site public school a new way of learning and exploring alcohol use and consequences. Along with providing students a new learning opportunity, teachers and other staff learned about the program's potential uses. A curriculum guide consisting of a unit plan for teachers and daily assignments for students to follow as they proceeded through the program was created to meet the specific needs of the St. Croix Camps.
