Meet the Hamilton Spectator’s 2013 media relations summer campers

Thanks to everyone who applied for the Hamilton Spectator’s 2013 media relations summer camp (#mediacamp).  The free annual camp for local nonprofits and community groups will run June 25 and 27. Campers, with the help of PR pros volunteering as camp counsellors, will polish, practice and then pitch story ideas to a panel of reporters and editors.  We’re looking forward to hearing some great story ideas from a pretty cool crew of campers:

  1. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Hamilton and Burlington
  2. Locke Street Festival / Locke Street Merchants’ Association
  3. Green Venture
  4. YWCA Hamilton
