Cronkite students in the classroom

High school outreach

Don’t wait until college, join the Cronkite School’s hands-on experiences just for high school students!

Camp Cronkite, our summer enrichment media camp, is where high school students from across the country come to grow their media skills—and get a taste of college life! Campers leave with real media skills and work to bolster (or kickstart!) their professional portfolios. By day, Cronkite faculty, staff and student guides lead campers in hands-on learning in our state-of-the-art building on ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus; then, campers retreat across the street to Gordon Commons, our residential hall, for supervised R&R.

Students are immersed in a variety of topics and skills within journalism and mass communication including digital journalism, broadcast journalism, sports journalism, digital marketing and so much more. At Camp Cronkite, students learn new approaches and get hands-on experience across a variety of media techniques. With tons of opportunities to grow one’s knowledge and skills, you will not want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Students and families, you can learn about Camp Cronkite, our just-for-high-school-students summer camp.
