Week 4: July 24-28, 2017
During the week the campers will be trained in all aspects of the field of sports broadcasting. The goal will be for the kids to be able to announce a game by the end of the week. We will teach interview techniques, the proper way to prepare for a game, and vocal delivery. This will be a hands-on camp where the kids will learn by doing. The goal is for each camper to leave the week with a real idea as to what it takes to broadcast a game. We will focus on the differences between calling a game on TV and the radio. We will study voices of legendary broadcasters and what makes them great. The campers will learn the basics of audio editing and studio recording as we build to the end of the week when the campers will combine all their new skills to call their very own game at Camp KO. The other campers will be the players in the games we will broadcast so it will be up to our kids to interview and gain information on their subjects. This is going to be a unique and fun week that will be perfect for any kid who loves sports and thinks they might eventually want to be a sports announcer.
