The Denver area has a variety of summer activities. Summer camps offer a way to bridge the gap between mid-May and August for working parents. They can also provide ways for kids to expand their 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.
