Re: free/cheap cams for kids group

If you photo subjects are mainly landscape during day time. I think a used smartphone will work fine. It is easier to find used smartphones these days. I would say, you can find decent quality smartphones for $20. Especially CDMA ones. (During the holidays, Virgin Mobile was even offering a new phone for $20). The kids will likely use a smartphone to take photos themselves anyway. And at their age group, chances are they already have a smartphone.

There are numerous outlets which people can recycle their old phones. Most of them are charged by micro USB. You can ask the place that volunteer to collect cell phones to see where the phones ended up. I think some of them may ended up in charity (or liquidators working for charity).
