Do you know an aspiring DJ between the ages of 10 and 14? Or someone who wants to have fun learning how to create and edit audio content? If so, KPOV's Summer Radio Camps are just for them! Camps will be held June 24-28, July 15-19, and August 5-9. All camps are from 9 a.m. to noon at the KPOV studio.

Youth Radio camp teaches youth what it’s like to be a DJ, record interviews with friends, talk live on the air and tell stories with sound effects, music, and humor. KPOV will also work with the group to produce a one-hour radio show broadcast on KPOV’s Youth Radio Hour and made into a digital copy campers can share with friends and family.

Check out this video from KTVZ of campers having fun and making radio at the 2019 Spring Break Camp.
