Pick the track that best suits your staff. We offer a variety of options including: BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED, ADVISER ONLY and the GO FOR IT! tracks. Coverage during your track session will include items such as ladder planning, theme development, staff organization, time management, yearbook trends, etc.
New to Yearbook or just trying to enhance your current book? The Beginner or Intermediate track will help you with cover design, caption and headline writing, as well as yearbook production and deadlines. Beginner is best if you have a brand new staff. Try Intermediate if you just need a refresher on the essentials.
Ready to make BIG changes to improve your current book? The advanced track is geared toward schools that create their book at a competitive level and have an advanced understanding of trending design, captions and writing. If your staff has mastered the fundamentals, or you have a seasoned staff with a competitive edge the Advanced track is the right one for you.
The adviser track is available for any adviser at camp. This track is recommended for advisers at camp without a staff and for new advisers. Feel free to stop by for one session or all of them. You would attend these sessions in place of any book building sessions noted on camp schedule.
The “Go For It!” Track has an additional cost involved. This sequence is designed specifically for those staffs that are positioned for, and aspire to, producing the highest levels of journalistically focused yearbooks. Following the guidelines and trends set by the two national press associations, “Go For It!” Advanced sessions will be led by two nationally recognized yearbook authorities whose publications programs have been critically acclaimed. Specialized training that will empower staffs to “kick it up” a notch will be provided by these two instructors.
The cost per staff is $850 to provide this intensive instructional learning and production environment. The “Go For It!” $850 cost is in addition to the base cost of $375 per student or adviser. Enrollment will be limited to 10 staffs with no more than 8 staff members and one adviser per staff. A staff having more than 9 registrants will be charged $125 per additional attendee. This charge will be added to the original $850 staff charge (i.e. if a staff has nine students the “Go For It!” fee will be $975 and so on).
