The University of Sudbury is offering two camps this summer for high school students interested in either journalism studies or indigenous studies.
Each five-day camp, offered in French, will introduce students to these fields of study through a series of fun and interactive workshops.
The camps will take place July 7-11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at the University of Sudbury.
The invitation to participate is extended to all francophone students in Ontario that have completed Grade 9.
The journalism camp will offer a variety of practical activities in the field of journalism, such as the production of a radio show, reading a news bulletin in front of the camera and photojournalism.
Students will also explore various aspects of communication, including social media and interview techniques.
The indigenous studies camp will interest those wishing to learn more about Aboriginal culture. Students will explore this culture and its links with various traditions and values.
Through a variety of activities, students will explore the relationship between the land and its natural resources that inspire a variety of cultural aspects such as indigenous artistic expression, symbolism, in addition to various traditional ceremonies.
Both camps are free. The deadline for registration is June 20. For students who live outside the city of Sudbury, free accommodations in the Lucien-Matte residence are available.
