Default Cheap Cameras for Children

I belong to a non-profit wildlife organization and we are looking to purchase 10 digitital cameras for children to use during our wildlife classes. I suspect if we can afford them, they are not worth buying, but thought someone might have some experiences in this area.

We don't have a dollar amount set - would like to find out how much we would have to spend.

Thanks

Maybe some camera manufacturer might have special pricing for educational use...just to get kids familiar with their brand. You might also look at manufacturer refurbished cameras. How much it costs depend on the features the cameras have...for nature shots do you say want something like an ultra zoom camera (that will cost you more).

Thanks Mike

Good suggestion - I'm embarrassed to say I hadn't thought of it, especially since Olympus Headquarters is in the same township.
I will try them first.

We don't need ultra zoom because they will take photos of our resident animals and can get fairly close, so that's a help.

Default Try Canon

I know Canon has a community relations involment department and they sometimes assist community related programs. If you call them they will give you a contact.
