The Denver area has a variety of summer camp options that offer a way to bridge the gap between mid-May and August for working parents or those looking for ways to expand their kids’ mental and physical horizons. Camps provide a great way to teach the kids independence, make new friends, learn new skills and entertain kids while parents are at work.
Academic day camps, sleep-over camps or camps teaching kids camping and outdoor skills are all available in our wonderful state of Colorado. No matter a child’s interest in science, math, the outdoors or the arts, there is a camp that will give kids a chance to learn new things this summer. Spaces are limited, so plan your summer now for a seamless flow from spring to summer. This link from the Denver Post will offer tips on preparing kids for overnight camps. http://www.denverpost.com/summercamps . While the idea of having your child spend a week away from home may seem scary at first, it can do wonders for building confidence for kids who are properly prepared.
