The CFCR Radio Summer Camp will be a youth empowerment project focused on skill-building in the realms of Radio, Media, and Podcasting. Participants will be immersed in a creative, supportive online atmosphere where they will learn and be challenged through daily activities. The intended outcome will be for the youth to walk away feeling empowered, with all of the skills to host their own live radio or spoken word program. The final projects produced during camp will hit the airwaves, with downloads available online. Due to COVID-19, they are hosting the camp online via zoom. Youth will be encouraged to remain engaged with the station, and when CFCR is able to onboard new volunteers in person for live studio training, participants will be welcomed to come to the station in person.

CFCR is committed to selecting a diverse group of participants and will review applications with this in mind. 

Camp Coordinator: Dana Durell. Dana works with the Saskatoon Open Door Society (SODS) and has experience with podcasting camps. 

Participants will be guided through activities using zoom, and have breakout sessions to work on their projects on their own time. The Camp Coordinator will be available in a group chat or by email if the youth have questions during their breakout sessions.

Participants will need access to a computer and a zoom account, as well as the ability to download a free open-source audio editing software program called Audacity.

A microphone will be delivered to the camper's home before camp, as well as healthy snacks for the week. The microphone is a rental from CFCR and will be picked up after camp. The microphone will be disinfected ahead of time and after camp as well.

Workshops and presentations will be led by CFCR Staff, CFCR Volunteers, and outside community leaders.
