Twenty-seven high school students from the Twin Cities joined ThreeSixty for two journalism-packed summer camps that brought our teens to the Star Tribune newsroom and WCCO rooftop, the Mpls. St. Paul Magazine boardroom and Mall of America social media nerve center—and plenty of other fun stops in-between.

We couldn’t have pulled off our ambitions without the following journalism and communications professionals. Whether stopping by for an hour-long journalism tutorial, setting up a tour on our behalf or engaging with students during a frenetic speed-networking block, their advice and expertise proved invaluable to the camp experience.
