Summer camp as we know it just isn’t a thing this year. But what if you could take the best of what summer camp has to offer, and brought it to campers who need it the most right now?

This week’s episode of Adweek Radio focuses on Camp ADventure, a free virtual summer camp for students who lost their advertising internships this year due to Covid-19. The camp brings together strategists, art directors, copy writers and more for eight weeks, all while working on passion projects and being mentored by some of the top minds in the industry.

Hear from Courtney Foster and Kevin Nguyen, founder and co-founder of Camp ADventure, as well as A. Walton Smith, founder of Black Woman Owned and head of content and community engagement at We Are Rosie.
