High School Outreach Programs

The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication offers a series of enrichment programs for high school students, which are led by faculty, staff and student counselors. For health and safety reasons related to the pandemic, these programs are going virtual for the summer of 2021.

Students who submitted their applications to the three Cronkite Camp programs for the summer of 2020 that were canceled — Summer Journalism Institute, High School Media Innovation Camp and the Cronkite Sports Broadcast Boot Camp — will be given first review for program opportunities in 2021.

If you have any questions, you can reach our camps team at CronkiteCamps@asu.edu.
