NEW: 2024 Ravens Podcast Journalism and Sports Camp

August 12 to August 16 for all children 13-16 years old

Our Podcast Journalism and Sports Camp is a fun and friendly day camp for teenagers aged 13-16 who want to explore audio podcasting while they exercise both their bodies and their minds. This camp offers fun and educational podcasting activities for young teens and is meant for those who are fascinated by telling stories, hearing what others have to say and then giving voice to those stories. This journalism camp offers a unique opportunity to learn in a university setting. The Podcast Journalism and Sports camp is a collaborative effort between the Carleton University School of Journalism and Communication and the Department of Recreation and Athletics.

Registration is open

The other half of the day will be a sports camp. Podcast Journalism campers will be trained how to use industry-standard audio recorders, microphones and other gear for hands-on activities that will provide an opportunity to conduct interviews and learn basic audio editing and storytelling skills. Every camper will get a chance to work on a podcast before the end of the week and then listen to their work as a group.
