The Colorado governor has given us new safety guidelines and announced that children’s day camps and youth sports camps will be able to open on June 1 

“I know this has been a very different school year than many students were expecting, and thanks to the success of our social distancing efforts so far, Colorado kids will be able to enjoy day camps and youth sports camps this summer in as safe a manner as possible.” Governor Jared Polis said.



We expect that Denver and other cities/counties will follow the state’s guidance and we feel confident that we will run MOST Camps this Summer! BUT BEWARE THAT THERE WILL LIKELY BE A 10 or 25 CAMPER MAX SO SIGN UP TODAY, SPACE WILL GO QUICK WITH THIS NEWS!
