Cameron University opens multimedia camp for teenagers

Lawton_You could be the creative genius behind the next "Pirates of the Caribbean" or "Spiderman".  They are blockbusters, thanks in part to wizardry on the computer.

The Cameron University Multimedia Department could be the best place to get that sort of training this summer.  For the first time, it's offering a Multimedia Summer Youth Camp.  The camp will be two, week-long sessions with afternoon classes.

Chair of the Multimedia Department Professor Donald Aguilar wants people to see Cameron has a lot to offer in the field of computer graphics and design - using pictures, sounds, and a computer to make movies or animations.  "The whole reason for us being here is to help the multimedia industry, that's the web design industry, training development industry that's right here in Lawton," Aguilar said.

You'll eventually be able to see the students' final work for yourself on the CU website once both camp sessions are over.

The camp is open to students age 13-18.  Sessions run from 1:00 til 4:30 each afternoon.  the cost is $40.
