Join us July 8 - 11
An experience like no other.
Media Now at Drake University in Des Moines is where students and advisers choose a single-track to immerse themselves in the three-night, four-day overnight camp experience. Participate in hands-on projects and showcase them in a campus-wide awards ceremony to cap off our time together. It’s an awesome opportunity to deep dive into that area of interest and hone your skills. No matter what level you arrive with, we’ll push you, encourage and train you to move to the next.
We keep our class sizes small so each student gets maximum attention from the instructor, room to collaborate with their peers and space to apply what they're learning. After 13 years of Media Now, we are confident we have the right formula of learning and fun to make this a highlight experience for any student journalist or communications student.
Looking for year-round or on-demand training? We have that too.
