CFCR 2022 Youth Summer Radio Camp - Apply Today!


May 17, 2022

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, with downloads available online!

Dates: Wednesday, August 10th - Sunday, August 14th, 9 am - 4 pm

Cost: Free

Ages welcome: 12 - 17 

Available spots: 6

APPLY TODAY!

Applications will close on Thursday, June 30th, 2022 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. 

Contact Shalyn at volunteers@cfcr.ca if you have any questions! 

A special thank you goes out to the Community Initiatives Fund for making this project possible.


CAMP INFO:

We are welcoming back Dana Durell, our Camp Coordinator. Dana works with youth at the Saskatoon Open Door Society (SODS), has extensive experience with podcasting camps, and is a volunteer host at CFCR!

The first day of camp will be held over Zoom as an introduction to the Camp Coordinator, expectations and equipment overview and to begin brainstorming ideas for the campers' radio segments. This would require campers to have access to a device capable of using Zoom.

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.
