CU Denver’s LYNX National Arts and Media Camp

If you’re interested in a career in arts and media you should check out the awesome summer camp that CU Denver’s College of Arts and Media puts on every summer. From the web site: The LYNX National Arts and Media Camps: are summer immersion programs for high school students interested in contemporary music, film, or visual arts. The camps are produced by the CU Denver College of Arts & Media and they have developed a reputation as one of the best high school summer arts camps in America. The camps are designed to be previews of our college programs. At the camps, students learn from CU Denver faculty, get a taste of college life, get mentored by current CU Denver students, and bond with other arts high school students from throughout the country. The camps take place on the CU Denver campus in downtown Denver, home to a thriving arts and music scene. We strive to inspire students, expose students to the latest arts and media technology, and help students to learn about college and career options in the arts!

Camps run from mid-June through mid-July and there are a variety of options.

iThrive (substance abuse) Classes Starting in January

 What is iTHRIVE and How Can We Help?

AN EARLY INTERVENTION SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROGRAM

iTHRIVE is an early intervention program for teens 12-17 years of age that are struggling with alcohol or drug abuse.  It’s also a program that works closely with the parents of the participating teens giving them the support they need to help their struggling teen.

There are 6 meetings in a session meeting once a week for two hours from 6:30-8:30 pm.  An hour long intake must take place before enrolling for a 6 week group. We offer groups in 3 locations.

In the teen sessions, youth receive skills needed to understand why they use, what their triggers are, and how to stop the abuse.  It is a safe and supportive arena in which to listen, share and learn. While the teens meet the parents meet separately.  The parents learn how substance abuse affects the developing adolescent brain, better communication skills, how to set boundaries and get support from other parents who are experiencing the same thing. 

The cost of the 6-week session is on a sliding fee scale depending on family yearly gross income, (please call for fee).

TO REGISTER call us at 303-776-8184 to schedule an intake with both the teen and the parent/guardian.

To learn more about iTHRIVE, visit our website at www.thrivingteens.org or give us a call.
