If your son or daughter is a middle or high school student and is thinking about choosing some form of video production for their future career, Tri-Valley Summer Camp is where they need to be this summer. Offered by Tri-Valley TV, this unique TV Camp will give your student an overall picture of the production process, help them prepare for related courses in video and provide an edge for a future in the industry.

Now in its fifth year, this day camp includes an introduction to studio production, field production, writing, producing and digital video editing. The day camp consists of a total of 20 hours and is open to middle and high school students who will be in grades 6 – 12 next fall. Participants will work within a group to produce a TV program that will air on TV30.

Two sessions will be offered to campers. The first session will take place June 17-21. The second session will be available from August 5-9. Tri-Valley TV Camp will run from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. each day. The fee is $495 and registration is limited.

“For the past four years, students have produced a one hour special that aired on TV30 titled “Tri-Valley Youth View,” said Melissa Tench-Stevens, Executive Director of Tri- Valley TV. “Students not only had the opportunity to work with our staff at a real television station, but have interviewed Mayors, Congressmen, up and coming rock bands, newspaper editors and others. We have had inquiries all year from residents waiting for us to open the registration. Our staff enjoys working with the students, and some of the campers have gone onto working with us at the station. It is a win-win for all,” she commented.

For more information and to register for the Tri-Valley TV Camp, visit the Tri-Valley TV website at and click on the Summer Camp icon or call the station at 925.462.3030. The camp is located at the Tri-Valley Community Television Studios of TV28, TV29 and TV30 which is on the grounds of the Pleasanton Unified School District, 4663 Bernal Avenue, Suite B in Pleasanton.
