ABOUT CAMP LOST
In four years you will be a professional in the field of digital entertainment. Producing new concepts for television or developing new AAA-games and anything in between, you still have four years to decide which direction you want to go. Before you enter these intense four years, we want to give you an unique opportunity to meet your fellow students at the introduction festival Camp Lost, exclusively for new ADE students.
For four days and three nights, you will have your first taste of what it is like to be a student in Breda. You will meet new people, do fun group activities and experience the Breda nightlife. Together with all the other freshmen of the Academy of Digital Entertainment you will sleep in tents and participate in the many activities that Camp Lost offers. During these days you will find out that everything you stumble upon is the work of ADE students, and you might be capable of doing these things in a few years’ time as well.
FOR THE PARENTS
University of Applied Sciences – a huge adjustment in the life of an adolescent, but also in the life of the parents. A new school, a new city, a new house.

With constant surveillance and medics on the terrain, we create a low-risk environment for your child’s health, safety and your peace of mind.
