My business partner told me about this camp. One of the things that caught my attention was the diversity amongst the campers. It was boys and girls of all races. The fact that the camp is being organized by a national broadcaster, professional guest speakers, media projects and lunch being included provides the most value and quality for the price.

“This camp has had a big impact on my daughter. I sent my daughter to this camp because she has a tremendous desire to major in journalism. I wanted her to get first hand knowledge and experience. She has already given me a to-do list of what to get for her to pursue journalism like an I-pad, editing software and internships. It has help my daughter to possibly decide which college to attend. I believe my daughter will be successful because of her attending this program.”
