It is our hope that by the time our Summer Academies take place, Champlain will resume normal operations. Of course, the safety of our visitors, current students, staff and faculty is our highest priority and first responsibility, and we will continue to take guidance from local, state, and federal health authorities regarding any need to extend the closure of our campus. If you are interested in attending the Media Production Academy, please register, and we will provide continual status updates. Should we be unable to host the program, your deposit and program fee will be refunded.
