Students make puppets at Denver Camp
Denver Camp included a field trip to a ranch for horseback riding
Denver CAMP is an educational summer program designed for DPS students in 4th through 8th grades from homeless or low-income families who do not have access to summer programs. It provides social, physical, and intellectual activities for students in Denver during the summer through a collaboration of non-profit organizations that offer a variety of activities including art, science, reading, tennis, swimming and much more.
Without programs to keep young minds stimulated, evidence shows that student learning slows or stops in the summer months and achievement gaps between advantaged and disadvantaged children widen. Research also shows that children gain weight more rapidly during the summer, and parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.
Denver CAMP provides a fun, supervised, enriching environment for DPS students in the summer months, helping them to stay academically and physically active.
“Without Denver Camp, there would have been no summer activities for those 125 kids who were in our program.”
Chanin Deane, Denver CAMP program coordinator
