Your Guide to Colorado Summer Camp Listings 2015

Believe it or not, now is the time to start researching Colorado summer camps. If you’re scratching your head in disbelief, I recently registered my daughter for our favorite overnight camp, Camp Chief Ouray, for the third year in a row. We got in by the skin of our teeth because that week (and a few others) already have wait lists. In February.  Lesson learned : Do not procrastinate. To help you wade through the many camps, The Denver Post recently published a Colorado Summer Camp Guide.

Engineering for Kids: How This New Centennial Facility Can Change Your Kids’ Future

When the new Denver company Engineering for Kids® reached out to Mile High Mamas to partner, I immediately thought of my 7-year-old son. As an avid science and math lover, I knew he would love their programs that are dedicated to exciting kids ages 4-14 about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) studies in a fun and challenging way through after-school classes, summer camps, clubs and parties. What I did not expect: My math-challenged 9-year-old daughter to catch on fire with engineering. Over Spring Break, the three of us toured their facilities at the Streets of SouthGlenn. Denver parent Iris Lozano recently left her successful career in Merger and Acquisitions and Operations to lead the organization. Her husband Sidney consults and oversees instructor training and quality wh...

What would you think of a summer camp where the arts are a vehicle through which children learn content, world history, take on big ideas through hands-on and imaginative activities and solve problems through critical thinking? Where the instructors aren’t college students on summer break but rather, nationally-renowned visual artists, NASA consultants, puppeteers, improvisational actors and photographers and mixed-media masters? Welcome to the Mizel Museum’s Creative Journeys summer day camps in southeast Denver where kids ages 3-14 of all backgrounds and interests engage in meaningful learning through the arts.

(Camp) Memories Light the Corner of My Mind: What Summer Camps Are You Doing?

I almost cried on my final day of camp. But here’s the really sad thing: I wasn’t even the one who attended. Last week, my children wrapped up their first ever “grown-up” camp with Avid4 Adventure. We’ve done casual sports and art camps through the school or county but this was our first real deal. My kids participated in their Multi-sport Camp and every day was dedicated to a different pursuit: kayaking, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing.
