Camp Format Information:

Due to state and university regulations we are not able to offer residential options this summer. We are still waiting to find out if we will be able to offer day camps on campus. We recommend that if you are interested in any of these camps, you still apply before our March 15th Priority Deadline. We will not ask for any payment until we have made a more definitive decision about the location of camp, be it on campus or virtual. Last year, we ran virtual camps that were very successful. If COVID forces us to hold camps virtually again, we know that we will still be able to offer engaging and exciting arts camps. Thank you for your interest and we hope that you apply for the 2021 LYNX Camps!
