Sign up for one of WTJU’s 2021 summer radio camps!

Want to get behind the mic and make some great radio? Then join WTJU this July for one of our summer 2021 radio camps!

NOTE: At this time, we are planning to offer WTJU’s summer camps both in-person and virtual simultaneously. Families may choose whichever option they prefer for the same fee. If public health directives make in-person camp impossible, camps will pivot to all-virtual.

What:
Students will learn the basics of audio production, conduct radio interviews, produce a short audio piece, and host a radio show on 100.1 FM!

In order to nurture a creative environment and practice social distancing, WTJU’s radio camps are capped at a small number of students with a lot of support from camp staff. For the 2021 camps, we will have a student-teacher ratio of approximately 2.5-to-1.

In-person campers must wear masks and practice social distancing in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Who:
Upper Elementary and Middle school students.

High school students can apply for a separate internship by contacting wtju@virginia.edu or calling 434-924-0885.

When:

Middle School radio camp (ages 11-14): July 12-16, 9am-3pm daily.

Upper Elementary School radio camp (Week 1)  (ages 8-11): July 19-23, 9am-3pm daily.

Upper Elementary School radio camp (Week 2)  (ages 8-11): July 26-30, 9am-3pm daily.

Extended day child care with pickup by 5:30pm is available for an additional fee

Where:
This year’s camps will be delivered both in-person and via remote instruction:

  • In-person campers participate at WTJU’s studios: 2244 Ivy Road, Charlottesville. In-person campers must wear masks and practice social distancing.
  • Virtual campers participate via Zoom, with home-based audio activities. Each student will check out an audio recording kit from WTJU.

Note: If public health directives make in-person camp impossible, WTJU camps will pivot to all-virtual.

Why:
Because community radio is awesome and WTJU’s record library is a thing to behold.

Cost:
$300 
per student. Sibling discounts available. And scholarships are available for those with a financial need. Inquire with Nathan at nbm9he@virginia.edu or 434-924-0885.
