jamCAMP: Breaking News & Multimedia Journalism

By Aida Donahue

July 13, 2022

White River Junction, VT –  jamCamp's Breaking News & Multimedia Journalism program helps kids to learn about the behind the scenes of journalism and news broadcasting, while being encouraged to use a hands-on approach. They create their own stories and reports and are taught how to use cameras, interview, edit, and write their own local reports on White River Junction, VT. Each camper is given the opportunity to both acquire new talents and discover their passions during this life-changing week of non-stop creativity.

Along with making their own reports, campers are able to meet with professional journalists such as Maggie Cassidy (Managing Deputy Editor at VT Digger), Jim Kenyon (Columnist at The Valley News), Will Parsons (CNBC Segment Producer), Elizabeth Wilcox (Freelance journalist), and Rob Gurwitt (publisher of Daybreak). These visits allow the kids to get direct advice from people working in the field.

From around the region...
