*The 2020 camps have been canceled due to the on-going COVID-19 situation. Please contact BCAT staff with any questions.

BCAT and SWTV are once again partnering for another summer youth program at our stations, called Teen Video Boot Camp. In Teen Video Boot Camp, teens will take turns running a video camera, audio equipment, acting and directing, and create their very own short film in just one week! Have fun being a part of a production team, make new friends, and learn to produce quality videos. The final day will include a screening of the film for friends and family!
