 2010 Young Journalist on the Scene of a Story

There are still spots available for WHYY’s award-winning summer camps! Register your son, daughter, niece, nephew, or grandchild today.

 WHYY’s summer camps give teens the tools they need to become producers of the media that shapes their world. Our intensive media production experiences foster creativity, problem-solving, and teamwork in a fun and challenging setting.

This summer, WHYY is offering two exciting hands-on production experiences: the WHYY Young Journalists Summer Camp and the WHYY Film Academy.

WHYY’s summer camps are perfect for teens currently in grades 9-12 who are looking to produce their own media in a fast-paced, professional environment.

Young Journalists Summer Camp

A two-week intensive experience, the camp teaches multi-media journalism in a real-world setting, as young journalists produce their own video, audio, and web stories. Facilitated by the staff of WHYY’s award-winning Public Media Commons, Young Journalists Summer Camp features lectures and training sessions from the renowned staff of WHYY’s news department and provides students with the opportunity to use WHYY equipment to produce news stories based on their interests.

And excellent experience for teens interested in news, video or audio production, photography, writing, or blogging.

Young Journalists Camp is offered in two sessions: June 27-July 8 and August 15-26.

Cost: $1250/$1200 for WHYY members.

The scholarship deadline for the Young Journalists Camp is THIS SUNDAY May 15!

WHYY Film Academy

Over the course of three weeks, young filmmakers in the WHYY Film Academy produce their own short movie from script to screen. After learning the basics of shot composition, storyboarding, scripting, location scouting, and continuity editing, the teen filmmakers spend their last two weeks shooting scenes in Center City and editing at WHYY’s state-of-the-art facilities, equipped with Final Cut Pro workstations.

Perfect for teens interested in film, acting, writing, and video production.

WHYY Film Academy runs July 11-29.  

Cost: $1850/$1800 for WHYY members.
