Colorado Summer Camps Directory & Parent Resource Guide

As a parent, you want the best opportunities for your child. We know that a quality Colorado summer camp experience can have a profound, positive and lasting impact on a young person's life. Camp offers a unique opportunity to enhance a child’s development, and should be considered an essential part of a child’s education. 

Great camps thrive on nurturing kids’ natural abilities. Campers are encouraged to be curious, and education driven by curiosity is a truly transformational opportunity. Camp is a place where kids can “come of age”, benefiting from new experiences that serve as a catalyst for growth. It is a place where kids can feel safe being themselves and accepted for who they are. 

With supportive leadership, Colorado summer camps help campers learn to be more independent, without the safety net of Mom & Dad close at hand. Campers gain confidence by learning new skills, successfully completing challenges, and working together with new friends toward common goals.
