IndyKids Summer Camp


At the IndyKids Kid Reporter Program Summer Camp, students were guided through an in-depth exploration of media literacy and how to become critical journalists. During the week-long camp, students explored every aspect of producing the IndyKids print newspaper. Students selected topics, interviewed subjects, researched and wrote their articles, learnt about political art, photography and podcasting.

The articles they wrote, featured in our latest newspaper, not only looks at the current policies in migration and mass incarceration, which are separating families, but also how this relates to the long history of separating families in the U.S, through colonization and slavery. IndyKids journalists also looked at the latest teachers strikes and how this is impacting students and their families. Questions? Contact us at

Listen to the podcast IndyKids reporters made about their hopes, dreams, fears and passions.
