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 three days and two 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
College – 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. All very exciting for your child, but might be hard for parents. All these changes begin with the introduction festival of a new study. Leaving your child with hundreds of other adolescents in the hands of an unknown organisation can be a little difficult and we totally understand this.
NHTV University of Applied Sciences and the organisation of Camp Lost 2017 wants to ensure you that your child is in good hands. 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. If your child decides to join Camp Lost, you and your child will be provided with contact information so you can always keep in touch with the organization. If you have any questions now, visit our FAQ section or contact us via the CONTACT section.
