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

Want to get behind the mic and make some great radio? Then join WTJU this July for one of our summer 2020 radio camps!

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, WTJU’s summer radio camps will be delivered via remote instruction this July. 

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, WTJU’s radio camps are capped at a small number of students with a lot of support from camp staff. For the 2020 web-based camps, we will have a student-teacher ratio of approximately 2-to-1.

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.

Where:
This year’s camps will be delivered via remote instruction (Zoom), with home-based audio activities. Each student will check out an audio recording kit from WTJU. Local home delivery is available within Charlottesville and the Albemarle urban ring.

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