On the Air – Summer Creative Camp Partnerships
Join us for two weeks of podcasting and radio fun with 91.3FM CJTR Regina Community Radio and the University of Regina Conservatory of Performing Arts.
We will be offering two different camps that spend four days at the Conservatory and one day at the CJTR studio. We are looking first for staff from the CJTR membership, especially those trained in using the broadcasting board in the studio for the live broadcast portion of this camp that takes place on the last day. Each group will be up to 12 youth ages 11-14 for the weeks and themes indicated below:
- July 11-15 – Podcasting & Radio 101 – campers will learn the in’s and out’s of writing, recording, and broadcasting a podcast for distribution on air or online. Campers will go from scriptwriting to recording a podcast in the short period about a topic of their choice.
- July 25-29 – Radio Play 101 – campers will learn the in’s and out’s of writing, recording, and broadcasting a radio play for distribution on air or online. A radio play is all about storytelling and acting all done through audio – sound effects, recorded dialogue, background noise, and more.
