is where you come to put the ME in Media.
The media is full of stories. And stories are told in all media. At Camp iGirl you will learn how you can shape media—for yourself, your community and beyond. You’ll take a critical look at the media that is all around you and learn how you can make the world a little better, a little more real…so it reflects your own reality. Your story. Your change. • Let your voice be heard and advocate for change. Learn how to know yourself and use your skills to make the world better. • Watch your confidence soar as you start living your story instead of someone else’s.
In addition to working in the classroom, you will: • Explore media careers with hands-on field trips. • Express your creativity in an acting or performance workshop. • Visit Camp Alice Chester swim, paddleboard, and make s’mores.
• Be a college student for the week and live in the dorms. • Work with outstanding Alverno faculty, students and inspiring women in the Milwaukee community.
The camp week will end with a parent program to showcase all of your hard work to family and friends.
Sunday, June 22 - Friday, June 27, 2014 Fee: $295 on or before 4/6 - $320 after 4/6
