Tri-Valley Television is offering students in middle and high schools again this summer an opportunity to learn about video production and broadcasting.
This unique TV Camp will give students an overall picture of the production process, help them prepare for related courses in video production and provide an edge for a future in the broadcasting industry.
Now in its eighth year, the Tri-Valley TV Camp includes an introduction to studio production, field production, writing, producing and digital video editing. The day camp consists of a total of 20 hours over a week. It is open to students in grades 6 to 12. Participants will work within a group to produce a TV program that will air on TV30.
"This is the only video camp available locally that provides students with a real life experience in a working television station," said Melissa Tench-Stevens, executive director at TV30. "The campers' edited program will be broadcast on television and may be viewed all over the world on our website."
TV30 is offering two 20 hour camps this summer. The first camp will take place June 13-17, the second from July 11-15. TV Camp will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. The camp fee is $535 and registration is limited.
