Summer camps for high school students
We are excited to offer camps on campus again this summer! We are also offering some virtual camp options. The on campus camp programs will be conducted in a safe way and will still be fun, educational, and engaging like always. Please review our full Covid Safety Policy. We are not able to offer any residential camp options this summer.
The LYNX National Arts and Media Camps are summer immersion programs for high school students interested in music and the arts hosted on the University of Colorado Denver campus and sponsored by the CU Denver College of Arts & Media. The camps are designed to provide students with an educational preview of the college programs offered in the College of Arts & Media while also providing students with an inspiring and memorable summer camp experience. We host high school students from many different states and countries at the camps which enables a diverse and enriching experience as students bond over a shared passion for the arts.
