    Mr. Camp has been a member of the TV Production department at Columbia since the 2006-07 school year.  He teaches all levels of TV Production including the Introduction and Advanced classes, as well as the CHS News classes.  He says the best part of his job is working with the students each day, because they are not only talented, but driven, insightful, and a lot of fun.  Under Mr. Camp's watch, the students in the Columbia Cable Network have won a high school Emmy award, earned multiple high school Emmy nominations, and won and placed in various other video contests, including winning the grand prize at the Ugotbrains Safe Driving video competition.

    Prior to coming to CHS, Mr. Camp spent ten years working in the TV News business.  He started in the local origination department at Cablevision in Piscataway, NJ.  There he was one of the company's lead reporters/anchors, and served as an editor and videographer.  After staying at Cablevision for 4 years, Mr. Camp then moved on to the Fox News Channel in New York City.  He began as a writer in the news department, and then became a producer for the channel's affiliate news service.  There he helped gather and produce news stories from all over the country and overseas.  Mr. Camp left Fox after 4 years, and began working for ABC News in the company's digital news division.  There he produced live breaking news coverage broadcast over the internet and select Cable providers, as well as a weekly celebrity entertainment show.  Since coming to CHS, Mr. Camp still does freelance work at Fox News on weekends, holidays, and during summer vacation.

    Mr. Camp is married with two children.  He received his BA in Mass Media & Journalism from Rutgers University in 1995 and his MA in Education and Technology from Seton Hall University in 2011.
