Carolina Sports Journalism Camp
June 27-30, 2018
The Carolina Sports Journalism Camp is now accepting applications. Rising high school juniors and seniors with an interest in sports and media are encouraged to apply. This four-day residential workshop will include instructional sessions on sports broadcasting, sports writing, sports photography and much, much more. Students will be housed on UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus.
The Carolina Sports Journalism Camp will include classroom study and practice in the field. The camp will feature visiting sports reporters and sports personalities. Students will take a behind-the-scenes tour of UNC’s sports media facilities. They will cover a press conference, write a sports feature story and experience what it's like to work on a sports media deadline.
Students will participate in an undergraduate sports writing course taught by Carolina Sports Journalism Camp lead instructor Tim Crothers. Crothers is a former senior writer for Sports Illustrated and author of three books: "The Man Watching;" co-author with Roy Williams on Williams' autobiography, "Hard Work: A Life On and Off the Court;" and "The Queen of Katwe," which has been made into a Disney feature film. His work has also appeared in New York Times Magazine and ESPN The Magazine.
Apply today and explore a future in sports journalism.
