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 online 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 CFCR airwaves, with downloads available online. Due to COVID-19, we are hosting the camp online once again via zoom. Youth will be encouraged to remain engaged with the station, and when we are able to onboard new volunteers in person for live studio training, participants will be welcomed to come in person and check us out!
Dates: Monday, August 23rd - Friday, August 27th, 2021, 10 am - 3 pm
Ages welcome: 12 - 16
Available spots: 6
CFCR is committed to selecting a diverse group of participants and will review applications with this in mind!
Camp Coordinator: We are welcoming back Dana Durell, our Camp Coordinator from 2020. Dana works with youth at the Saskatoon Open Door Society (SODS), has extensive experience with podcasting camps, and is a volunteer host at CFCR!
Participants will be guided through activities using zoom, and have breakout sessions to work on their projects on their own time. The Camp Coordinator will be available in a group chat or by email if the youth have questions during their breakout sessions.
Participants will need access to a computer and a zoom account, as well as the ability to download a free open-source audio editing software program called Audacity.
A USB microphone will be delivered to the camper's home before camp. The microphone is a free rental from CFCR and will be picked up after the camp has completed. The microphone will be disinfected ahead of time and after camp as well.
Workshops and presentations will be led by CFCR Staff, CFCR Volunteers, and outside community leaders.
