CKUT Radio Camp
Age: 10 to 17 years old.
Did you hear on the radio that there’s something new in our Camp programming? With CKUT Radio Camp, you will get the chance to try out the world of radio! In collaboration with CKUT*, McGill University’s community radio station, we have designed a one-week intensive program to introduce you to this fascinating medium!
How does radio work? And a sound studio? How is the musical programming chosen? And the interviews with celebrities? Answers to all these questions and more, and intense activities are all programmed into this great camp!
To be sure the experience is interesting for everyone, 10-13 year olds, and 14-17 year olds, will have their own groups, and the camps will be held in alternating sessions. Also, the CRC gang will finish their week by participating in a live CKUT broadcast!
New for the 14-17 year old group: 2 specialized two-week sessions!
We are offering 2 new two-week long specialized camps for teenagers aged 14-17. In the first week teens will get the full radio experience using CKUT's recording equipment and studios, and learning all of the basic radio production skills complete with two live-on-air programmes hosted by the campers.
