The Best Summer Camps in Colorado

Colorado’s diverse landscape and vibrant cities make it an ideal state for exploring and learning alike. Adventure and wilderness camps are popular choices, as are academic and tech camps. Whether your child wants to trek through the Rockies or attend an academic camp, they’ll enjoy learning alongside their peers in a stimulating, breathtaking setting.

Camps vary by length to accommodate your child’s needs and preferences. They can spend the night at a Colorado sleepaway camp, for example, or head home after a day jam-packed with activities. Some camps are just for boys, some are just for girls, and others are coed, and there are camps that specialize in attending to children with special needs so everyone can enjoy a comfortable and rewarding summer.
