Summer Media Experience
for High School Students

iCAMP Academy

Are you a Philadelphia high school junior or senior with a passion for media? Join us as a media developer-in-residence at WCU for an exciting week!  

iCamp is a free media academy held at West Chester University from July 8-14 2018. We invite high school juniors and rising seniors from the Philadelphia School District to join us in making media that matters. We produce films, games, podcasts & audio, and web sites, but our passion is working with youth to effect social change.

Learn new skills.  Make new friends. Live in a college dorm. Work on challenging and fun projects. Craft media that represents your voice and your perspective.  No prior experience necessary!
