It's time for Radio Camp!

Come to the studios of 88.5 WFDD for a week-long immersive radio experience. During this week, middle-school students interested in technology, journalism, storytelling, and the world of radio get to produce and take home their own radio story.

Do you know anyone who would make a good Radio Camp interviewee? We'd love to hear from you!

At Radio Camp, students learn:

  • The basics of audio recording in the studio and in the field
  • How to conduct an interview
  • How to edit sound using the same software as radio professionals
  • Other skills, such as how to write, record, edit, and create their own stories for broadcast.

Still on the fence? Well, some past campers have a message for you:
