Best camcorder for preteen to download videos??? Any recommendations?

My son asked for a camcorder for xmas.  He wants to film his friends doing bmx bike tricks and download it to youtube. (With my approval, of course.)  Any recommendations for an inexpensive camcorder that will do the job?

For a high rated camcorder for beginners, look below:
