2018 CJSF Radio Kids Camp Returning This August

This August, CJSF 90.1 FM’s Radio Kids Camp day camp will mark ten years of introducing young people to the wonderful world of radio! Exploring topics ranging from interactive media to sustainable communities in a fun summer camp setting, CJSF’s Radio Kids Camp has also engaged its participants in the world at large throughout the years.

CJSF 90.1 FM is a community radio station on the SFU Burnaby campus that aims to make space for all voices on the airwaves, including young people in our community. At the Radio Kids Camp, day camp participants aged 8 to 12 will have the opportunity to produce their own show and learn about recording, sound editing, sound effects and DJing – all while enjoying familiar summer camp activities like workshops, games and field trips to local cultural venues and media outlets.

At the end of the week, Radio Kids Camp participants will create their own live radio program on CJSF, playing music that they choose and broadcasting the stories that they have created during the week. Throughout the week, campers will learn radio journalism skills that will aid them in thinking critically about the world and creatively expressing their passions and ideas.

The camp will run from 9am to 4pm during the weeks of Aug. 13-17 and Aug. 20-24 and costs $175 per participant, including service and processing fees. There are a limited number of spots available for the Radio Kids Camp (subject to waitlist), so please register as soon as possible!

To register for the 2018 Radio Kids Camp, go to our Eventzilla registration page at eventzilla.net/user/cjsfradio and pick an intake date. Registration for the Aug. 13-17 intake and Aug. 20-24 intakes will end at 8pm on Aug. 9.
