Applications are now open for the annual Communications and Media Career Exploration Camp for high school students, which will take place June 25 to 28, 2017.

Our camps have helped many students explore our field and decide whether to pursue a communications degree in college.


At camp, students perform all of the tasks required to create a television magazine show and a newspaper—print and online. Students can shoot video on digital video cameras, edit using state-of-the-art non-linear editing systems, do studio production, perform on-camera, take still photos, write stories, and engage in layout and design using the most advanced software products. Plus, our Communications faculty members and students mentor campers as they work to create these media products. Students will receive copies of their television show and newspaper.

Campers stay in residence halls, eat in the student dining facilities, and participate in evening events planned by our university staff.

The price is very reasonable--$90 for four days and three nights. Camp fills quickly, and current high school juniors will be admitted first.
