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 2 - August 1. Register for all or individual weeks. Space is limited, so enroll early!

New in 2014
  • Teen Scene is now Adventure Trek. New name, new adventures!
  • Attend a licensed, partial-week Adventure Trek camp. Teens have the option of a Monday through Friday or Tuesday through Thursday camp. This year we have this option at both sites!
  • New drop off and pick up times for Adventure Trek. Morning drop off is 7-8am, afternoon pick up time is 5-6pm.  This allows for more time to enjoy the adventures!
