The tour includes an overview of the station and an opportunity for the students to get in front of the camera and create a PSA. Groups of no more that 20 at a time will get the chance to come in take a tour of the station and then will get a chance to get in front of the camera to create a public service announcement. The group will be given one DVD (more available upon request for a cost).The tour lasts about 45 min.

* The cost for the tour is $10.00 per scout or sibling at a minimum of $100.00.  If you don’t have 10 scouts or siblings, the total cost would be $100.00

* Adults are free

* We offer tours weekdays between the hours of 10am – 5pm and we don’t schedule tours on Saturday

Parent Testimonial:

"The TV station tour for the cub scouts was fun, insightful, captivating and creative. We learned about editing, production and every child had a chance to be in front of the camera and do an announcement. The kids had a lot of fun and the staff did a fantastic job. I would recommend this to everyone who is curious to have a behind the scene look at how a TV program is made."
