Youth Tours

 

We provide tours for youth that want to learn more about video production or for those looking to earn their communication badges for scouts. 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."
