Summer Camps for Kids in Colorado

The weather is changing quickly and summer is just around the corner. We may have a few more snow showers before everything is said and done (April is one of Denver’s snowiest months) but I think we are all ready for the weather to stay on the warmer side. That also means that school will be out soon and the kids are going to need some fun activities to stay busy this summer. I know my daughter really enjoys going to camps during the summer and the nice thing is, there are camps for every kid out there. From sports camps to theatre camps to music camps, you are sure to find a camp that will fit your kids to a tee. Below is a list I have compiled of some great camps to check out:


Dinosaur Ridge – For the dinosaur lovers in your family, this is the perfect camp to send them to. See 150 million year old dinosaur bones from Late Jurassic floodplains and stream channels all while learning everything there is to know about the dinosaurs.


Osmond Equestrian – For those of you who have a child who likes to ride, this camp is sure to make them happy where all their horse dreams can come true.


TIGAR Gymnastics & Cheer – The owner of TIGAR, Beth Deasy, has one moto when it comes to kids: they should grow up to become adults who love who they are and what they do and at this camp, they will learn to develop such self-knowledge and a passion for life. Kids can have it their way too if they want their parents to accompany them at camp or if they are ready to rock solo, up to them.


School of Rock Denver – If you have a child who loves all things music then this is the camp for them. School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and much more. Each student will be exposed to weekly private music lessons as well as group band rehearsals to prepare for their final concert at the end of camp.


iD Tech – Ranked the #1 summer tech camps for kids and teens ages 6-18, this day and overnight camps is perfect for aspiring programmers, video game designers, engineers, photographers, app developers and much more. iD Tech has programs specific for girls, teens, tweens and young learners.
