The 2015 Camp took place from June 14th-26th, 2015. It consisted of four camp programs: Photography, Movie Production, Digital Animation and 3D Graphics, and Music Industry (Singer/Songwriter, Recording Arts, Music Business, and Performance/Ensembles). You can find articles about the 2015 camp in the Media Section of our website. We hosted 94 students and the camp and it was a wonderful learning experience for the students. Our 2015 LYNX Camp video is available on our Youtube page here.
LYNX Camp Mission
Our mission is to effect change by preparing high school students
to successfully pursue their artistic passions through higher education.
Our students are exposed to the skills they need to foster
creativity, learning, and community in a higher education environment in order
to reach their full academic potential.
LYNX Camp Vision
We envision a world made smaller, and more fully human, by the artist’s
interpretation of the human experience. Our students come to us with passion
for artistic expression. Our goal is to send them into the college environment
confident of purpose, ready to succeed.
LYNX Camp Values
Academic and artistic rigor, creativity and innovation are bedrock
principles of the College of Arts & Media community and the cornerstone of
how we define excellence. As champions of creative excellence in art making and
artistic expression we support risk-taking,
intellectual freedom and social responsibility.
We believe in a culture of
shared discovery. Our students learn by doing, and as emerging peers, are
important contributors to the knowledge exchange. We value rigorous investigation, critical thinking, diversity,
collaboration and invention.
We are committed to learning both inside and outside the
classroom. The accessibility, diversity and cultural energy of Denver make the
College of Arts & Media a better place to teach, work and learn. We strive
to offer reciprocal experiences to the citizens of this great city and pay it
forward by extending our reach and impact in the global community.
