In the fall of 2015, an idea hit us: how fun would it be to provide a camp for Nebraska high school students to get involved with audio and video production? Many young people do not realize the amount of career opportunities there are in the field of communications, and may not have the opportunity to try it out while in high school. Plans began to form, we received permission, and here we are today – thrilled to be planning the second annual Digital Expressions Summer Media Camp. We think campers will enjoy our campus, the classes they take during camp, the projects they get to create, and the time they will share with us.
