Programs

As a school, develop content for immediate release across platforms — bring your students and advisers from all publications.

Focus on the business end. Success is more than great stories and design. Discover how to market your program to increase your audience and sales.

Ignite is a great place to go to open your eyes to the yearbook world and further your technical skills to be ready for the upcoming year. It’s a great head start.
Nathan '16, La Cañada High School
We thoroughly enjoy the week filled with amazing classes, instructors, cover design artist, helpful tips on current trends, photography and program techniques that help to kick start our yearbook. We all work hard, eat well, and have fun meeting new friends from other schools.
Jennifer Godwin Minto - Adviser, Polytechnic School
Going to yearbook camp brought my staff two very important things: 1) how to make our yearbook better than it has ever been through their amazing, caring staff leading and guiding the staffers to a successful year of publishing and 2) our time at camp allowed us to become closer with our staffers, but also to become closer with our adviser, helping us communicate and increase productivity while doing so. Meetings friends from a different state is also a very large positive… Sign up for camp!!
