iCamp Media Academy

July 21-27 Residential at WCU Main Campus

For Summer 2024 iCamp offers two programs for students attending the School District of Philadelphia: iCamp for College Credit and iCamp, a one week residential media academy at WCU.  

Now in our 8th year, iCamp at WCU is a social-justice oriented media camp for students from the School District of Philadelphia. Our team of WCU Professors, Media Experts, and Philly-based social justice activists brings technical expertise and a race-conscious orientation to help Philly youth build and develop media projects that express their voices and perspectives.

Students spend a week with us in residence at WCU’s beautiful suburban campus. Live in the dorms, eat at the student cafeteria, relax in the library and the student rec center. Your days will be full of activities, from early morning til late at night. Dedicated classes with hands-on training help students quickly build proficiency in media making. You’ll pitch your ideas and get feedback from other students and our team of experts. By the end of the week, you’ll show your project in a Launch Party for your friends, family, and community members. 

Students move into the dorms on Sunday afternoon 7/21, with work beginning Sunday evening. Each day will have dedicated training classes (~4 hours/day) and time to explore campus and make friends. Evenings will be in the dorms, playing games, listening to music, talking, and working on projects. The week goes by in a hurry, but the memory lasts a lifetime.
