Radio Camp for Kids and Teens at Community Radio Station KXCI

How cool is this, if you're a kid or teen in Arizona you can sign up for "Radio Camp" at community radio station KXCI 91.3 FM this summer. The week-long day camp teaches kid the ins and outs of radio broadcasting and culminates in the group running their own radio show.

If you're a radio-obsessed kid in Tucson, the teen class (week of June 23rd) has a few more slots and there's also a kid class (for 9-12 year olds) in August.

I love it when college and community radio stations encourage kids and teens to get involved. I've been at stations with high school student DJs and I'm always super impressed when kids that young are interested in radio.

Do you have kids and teens at your station? Do you think you'd ever host a summer camp?
