Looking for a way to inspire your teens this summer? Check out SPOT 127 Summer Boot Camps. 

These two-week-long camps offer Valley high school students intensive, hands-on training in multimedia production under the guidance of SPOT 127 staff, KJZZ Phoenix journalists and other media professionals. The cost for the program is $250, which includes lunch. Some scholarships are available for students based on financial need.

Participants spend two weeks learning to report, write, shoot and edit audio and video stories with the latest equipment. It is an excellent opportunity for students to get hands-on production experience and to develop multimedia pieces that can be used in portfolios and scholarship and college applications.

July sessions at SPOT 127 will offer a variety of experiences in digital media with a close connection to topics that impact the lives of high school students. Students write stories on a specific topic, gain new skills, expand upon existing skills and create an assortment of exciting projects.
