Kid journalists create a newspaper at Salvation Army summer camp!
The kids put on a show at the end of their week – called “Follow U” – to showcase what they learned from the professionals on staff who taught them about acting, sound and lights, set design, art, hair and make-up, dance, choir and more.
One such pro on the teaching staff this year was our very own Christin Davis, managing editor of The Salvation Army’s New Frontier Publications.
While many of the kids focused on the performance and production end of things, Christin taught the kids interested in a different form of storytelling about journalism!
Eighteen kids participated in the production of The Crags Caller, an 8-page publication that told stories from the week at camp. Pint-sized reporters interviewed subjects, checked facts, filed stories, met deadlines and ultimately saw their words on the printed page.

We want to thank all the talented professionals who shared their time and their gifts with our camp kids. God bless you! We know it was a week they won’t soon forget.
