Aspiring radio journalists gathered at the University of St. Thomas to work on interviewing, audio editing, scripting, and voicing. The theme for 2022 was Indigenous narratives, and students conducted their interviews at Hoċokata Ti, a gathering space at the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community in Shakopee.

The 2022 partners were MIGIZI, KRSM and American Indian Family Center.  MPR News provided mentors for the six students.

Radio Camp was created in 2017 by ThreeSixty Journalism and MPR News, in memory of longtime MPR News employee and ThreeSixty champion Toni Randolph. Radio Camp participants are automatically eligible to be considered for a full-tuition, four-year scholarship to study journalism at the University of St. Thomas.
