Camper Dee Jays broadcast 6 hours a day over the FM band every summer at Camp Lohikan! It's a real radio station! Campers and our Radio Activity Instructors write shows, conduct interviews, broadcast camp news… and even play music! “E” (everyone) rated music of course.
Campers into Radio Broadcasting are usually interested in joining Lohikan’s Dee Jay Clinic which is scheduled 4 times this summer. Campers participating in the Dee Jay Clinic learn everything there is to learn about being a Dee Jay! You’ll learn about the dee jay equipment, how to set it up and operate it… everything from the lights, mixers, amps, speakers… and lots of wires! You’ll learn how to put together a music set and add digital effects. And you’ll get to perform your talents LIVE! Yep, you’ll headline a super evening dance extravaganza this summer!!! The Dee Jay Clinic is a FREE CLINIC! Sign up here.
Video Production is great activity for those who want to learn how to shoot video (i.e., be a camera operator), be video taped (be a reporter or actor!), edit video (produce a movie!), or all of the above!
Campers receive instruction from specialists in the field using the latest digital equipment including camcorders, editing software and computers.
Campers write, shoot, edit and produce their own video shows in camp! And they’re really good!!! Campers have produced music videos, comedy acts, broadcast news shows, and lots more.
What’s great is that our dining hall is equipped with a high powered video projector which is used during meal times so everyone gets to screen the latest camper video work of art! A star is born at every meal at Camp Lohikan!
The computer room is where you’ll find specialty instructors conducting classes in desktop publishing, graphics, web design, digital art, digital photography software, digital video editing and more.
Next to the computer room is the computer game room. This is the one activity in camp where campers are restricted in the amount of time they can schedule in the elective program… The computer games are popular and little instruction is needed. In fact, you might say the campers know more about the games than the adults!
The Email Activity is a busy place during the summer! This is where you can compose send your emails every day! You can send emails to mom and dad, friends and family... every day if you want! You just sign up for the email activity and you're in! The Email Activity is part of the camp program and included in the camp tuition.
Campers can also receive emails during the summer. Emails are printed and collated and delivered to the camper with the daily cabin mail. Sending emails to the campers is managed through CampMinder, the same service that hosts the camp's daily photo gallery.
A camp newspaper is published and distributed every day at Camp Lohikan. Campers write, type, proof, and publish their work with the help of specialty instructors. All camper contributions are accepted including jokes, cartoons, fictional articles, reporting, etc. It makes good reading at lunch!
In addition to the Media Arts Program there’s a lot more arts goin’ on at Camp Lohikan… Check out the Theater Program, Dance Program, Music Program, Circus Arts Program & Flying Trapeze, and the Creative Arts Program.
