Looking for a fun and safe way for your child to spend their summer? Commerce City summer camps are the place! Children and teens enjoy a variety of activities including arts and crafts, games, team-building activities, swimming, field trips, and more. We maintain low child to staff ratios while providing a safe and friendly environment.

There are separate camps for 6-10 and 11-15 year olds  and camp runs from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. June 8 - August 7. Register for all or individual weeks. Space is limited, so enroll early!

Please read parent information manual prior to filling out enrollment forms.

New in 2015
  • New Registration Timeline/Deadlines-please review!
  • There is a new site for the northern Adventure Trek. Reunion Metro District is allowing us to use the pavilion at Southlawn Park located at Southlawn Circle and Reunion Parkway. This is the closest park to our previous site that has a shelter, open space, restrooms and an option for a tornado shelter.
  • Yasmin Cassini, Recreation Coordinator, now oversees both the youth and adventure trek camp programs. This allows one coordinator to oversee all the licensed programs to help streamline the camps. Jacob Cox is still with the city, we just reorganized some responsibilities.
