The CFCR Community Radio Summer Camp will be a youth empowerment project focused on skill-building in the realms of Radio, Media, and Podcasting. Participants will be immersed in a creative, supportive atmosphere where they will learn and be challenged through daily activities. The intended outcome will be for the youth to walk away feeling empowered, with all of the skills to host their own live radio or spoken word program. The final projects produced during camp will hit the airwaves on 90.5 FM.
Dates: July 24th - 28th, July 31st - August 4th.
** Campers will be split into two groups - one group will attend mornings (9am - 12pm) the first week, one group will attend afternoons (1pm - 4pm). For the Second week, the group that originally attended mornings will then attend afternoons, and vice versa. If you are only able to attend either mornings or afternoons, please note that in your application.
Ages welcome: 12 - 17
Available spots: 20
Applications will close on Friday, June 30th, 2023 at 6 pm. Accepted applicants will be notified in early July!
CFCR is committed to selecting a diverse group of participants and will review applications with this in mind.

A special thank you goes out to the Community Initiatives Fund for making this project possible.
We are welcoming back Dana Durell, our Spoken Word Camp Coordinator. Dana works with youth at the Saskatoon Open Door Society (SODS) and has extensive experience with podcasting camps!
We are also welcoming Shalyn Nicole, the Music Camp Coordinator. Shalyn is a volunteer host for CFCR, and also held the position of CFCR Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator and will return to that position in 2024.
We are so excited that we will be extending Youth Summer Radio Camp this year in a few ways. Radio Camp will be a 2 week period, and we have 20 available spots. Previously, Youth Summer Radio Camp taught the ins and outs of Spoken Word Programs. This year, we will also be providing campers with knowledge to create their own Music Program.
The duration of the camp will be held in person at the CFCR station (267 3rd Avenue South - Downtown)
Although it is not required, campers are encouraged to bring a computer/tablet capable of downloading and running an open-source audio editing program (Audacity) to be able to work independently on their projects. Microphones & headphones will be provided for use at the station when campers are not in the production studio.
Workshops and presentations will be led by CFCR Staff, CFCR Volunteers, and outside community leaders.
