WNIN CAMP TV Auditions
Your Child Could Appear on TV!
Send you child's video audition to WNIN today!
WNIN is now accepting video auditions for children in grades K-5 who love reading and would like a chance to appear on a national television series called CAMP TV. Auditions must be submitted by Friday, March 24th.
CAMP TV focuses on playful learning for students in grades K-5, with a summer camp theme. Each episode contains a segment called "Tell Me a Story," comprised of read-alouds of popular picture books, featuring children from communities across the country as readers. You can watch one of those segments here.
In Summer 2023, one of the children reading for a “Tell Me a Story” segment will come from right here in the Tri-State! WNIN will select a child from the submitted video auditions to participate in the project. The child will be professionally filmed reading a popular picture book at a filming site in Evansville, Indiana. This footage will then be sent to the producers of CAMP TV, and the child’s reading segment will be broadcast nationwide!
How to Submit a Video Audition

About CAMP TV
CAMP TV is a national television series focused on playful learning for students in grades K-5. Just like real camp, each day (episode) has a fun theme like Sports Day, Career Day, Space Day, and more. Campers are greeted by an enthusiastic head counselor who introduces the daily camp theme and chaperones viewers from one engaging, educational activity to the next.
This series features everything 5- to 10-year olds love about summer camp - hands-on activities, performing arts, movement, nature and animal content, science, literacy, virtual field trips and more - all led by the enthusiastic and fun-loving “head counselor” Zachary Noah Piser and “co-camp counselor” Mia Weinberger.
