The Retro Network Summer Camp 2022 presented by Old Time Candy opens June 20 and is sure to be the event of the summer. There will be a lot of fun to be had by all, and nostalgia will be at the center of it all.

For two weeks, The Retro Network will play host to several summer-themed content events. There will be new summer nostalgia features to enjoy, as well as some special videos premiering on TRNTV. In addition to that, keep your ears open for retro summer-themed editions of your favorite podcasts on The Retro Network. There will also be plenty of summer fun to be had across the TRN social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. A schedule of events will be released soon.

One of the main highlights of the event will be our writing contest. We’re giving everyone a chance to join in on the fun by writing their own essay/article with a theme of summer nostalgia, with prizes being awarded for the top 3 entries!

Prizes to be Awarded:

  • 1st Place: $75 Amazon gift card, lunchbox of penny candy from Old Time Candy
  • 2nd Place: $25 Amazon gift card, lunchbox of penny candy from Old Time Candy
  • 3rd Place: TRN Gift Pack, lunchbox of penny candy from Old Time Candy

All you have to do to enter is write your own essay/article that is based on summer nostalgia and submit it. A panel of judges will determine the winners, and they will be announced at the end of the two-week event. All entries will be published on The Retro Network, and will be promoted across our social media channels, so if you’re a fledgling writer, this is also a chance to get exposed to a new audience!

  • The essay/article submitted needs to be original, and not published before.
  • The essay/article needs to be at least 500 words in length.
