What is a Master Camp?

Every year, the Catholic Media Conference devotes Wednesday to Master Camps. A Master Camp is a day of intensive educational sessions designed to build depth of knowledge in a specific area. The afternoon sessions build on the learning from the morning session, for more than five hours of learning within a specific discipline. The five tracks and sessions are detailed below.

What are the benefits of attending a Master Camp?

Master Camps are designed not only to inform, but to provide hands-on experience that will allow attendees to gain depth of knowledge in a key area impacting Catholic journalism. Attendees may choose from five different topic areas.
