Sports Link Summer Camp June 25-27

As part of the College of Communication, Information, and Media’s Summer Workshop Series, Ball State Sports Link is hosting a residential summer camp June 25-27 on campus.

Ball State’s Mediapalooza workshop is a robust summer experience for middle and high school students and teachers looking to become better leaders, writers, storytellers, designers, editors, photographers, videographers and more! No prior experience necessary.

The Sports Link camp is led by Senior Director of Sports Production and Associate Lecturer Chris Taylor, along with the “Voice of the Cardinals” and Adjunct Faculty Mick Tidrow.

Held on the beautiful campus of Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, workshop participants will utilize the same state-of-the-art facilities, classrooms and technology that our degree-seeking students use.

The camp will focus on three aspects of sports media production: content creation, storytelling and play-by-play. Sessions will advance participant’s skill set in interviewing, on-air presentation, content creation and story development.

The 3-day camp is $350 for students staying on campus, and $300 for commuting students and includes a $30 meal card. Any middle or high school student or teacher who has an interest in learning or expanding their knowledge and experience as storytellers and media content producers or designers are welcome.

Our residential workshop participants will stay in one of Ball State’s new or updated residence halls. Residence halls are air conditioned and feature semi-private bathrooms (pods shared by a small number of rooms). Each room is equipped with a bed, desk and dresser. Participants must bring their own bedding, toiletries, shower towel and luxury items. All residence halls are located within close proximity of a dining facility with numerous food options, including the ever-loved Starbucks.
