Radio Fairfax - Listen Live!

FPA offers students interested in Television and Radio production a great outlet to learn, experience, and create.  Each summer we offer 1 week Radio and 2 week Television Camps, which certifies participants in the use of our production equipment and as FPA station producers.  Once properly trained, participants can begin volunteering and earn production experience throughout the year by helping in the various public access programs created at FPA or even create a show of their own.  

In the case of the Radio Camp, students learn the use of our WRLD radio studio equipment (audio board, mics, tapes, and recording decks) and learn the procedures on how to conduct a radio show.  During the camp, students will work in creating individual show segments such as, news reports, traffic updates, or a specific student-selected themes. Together they will then finalize the project to create a 1-hour radio show to air at our station.

We also have two versions of our TV 101 Camps.  An indoor television studio production camp or a field production / documentary-style camp.  For each TV 101 Camp, students will learn about the equipment and the wide variety of crew positions needed to create a successful television project. The first week generally consists of learning the use of the equipment and crew positions; while in week 2 the students work together to create a 30 minute program.  Our instructor will guide the students through all the production phases and explain the importance of proper planning and preparation.   

The FPA summer camp fee includes the yearly FPA membership cost of $26 dollars and the station has an early 5% summer camp registration discount for enrollments completed by May 31, 2018.
