What is AdCamp?
AdCamp is a one-week program that introduces students in grades 10–12 to the many facets of advertising—strategic planning, the creative process, media management, account planning and more. During the week students receive lessons in teamwork, presentation skills, networking and interact with advertising professionals and college professors. They apply what they learn from these industry experts to create a compelling marketing campaign.

AdCampers need your financial support as a program sponsor or a scholarship provider to multicultural students. You can also host industry immersions, conduct advertising lectures, assist in the development of their marketing campaigns and much more.
“Leo Burnett was proud to partner with the AAF to bring the AdCamp program to Chicago. We were beyond impressed with the level of talent exemplified from the high school students selected to participate in the program. We had a great time interacting with the students, leading classroom activities and industry immersions, as well as hosting job shadowing opportunities. This was a wonderful way for us to engage our community and future talent pool by helping them explore the variety of careers the advertising industry has to offer."
