Digital Storytelling is one of our greatly anticipated programs. These classes provide the opportunity for kids ages 10 through 15 to learn to tell their story in a week long program.  One of our classes is already sold out with the others filling up. Get your applications in soon. These classes begin the 25th of July and finish up August 5th. It will be great to see the returning students who are always willing to share their experience with the newcomers. The program is so good that adults have asked to participate.

El Camino TV (ECTV) is finishing up their 2015-2016 ECTV year. They are wrapping up a great season of the freshest youth series around. We look forward to next years’ journalists and rumor has it, some of the students will be roaming the halls and studio of CAPS during the Summer.

Ventura Rocks @ CAPS is rolling along. We just filmed our fifth episode featuring Shawn Jones and band.  What fun to have such talent in the studio and see our staff and crew working hard to produce a prime product and to have Pam Baumgardner booking the bands and hosting the show. Go to the CAPS Media websites schedules for dates and times to see the show.

On a different note, the CAPS crew covered the Ventura Chamber hosted Election Forum for the Board of Supervisor’s seat on July 7th. This forum is the first in our intense election programming where we cover and broadcast a variety of election forums held later this year. We are also proud to announce the return of the Video Voter program for Election 2016. Video Voter invites candidates to share their platform with the viewers and answer questions about issues important to us all. CAPS Media’s purpose is to uphold the 1st amendment and offer the citizens the opportunity to share their voices and speak out.

We need your help to fund our radio station to be able to share more bands and their music with you.  CAPS Media a non-profit membership organization that is here to create an engaged and informed community through participation in electronic media.
