Help kids unplug this summer; CSU brings popular summer camps to Castle Rock

RAM Camp NR graphic2

In just a few short weeks, the final bell will ring, backpacks will be hung up and school will be out for summer. While that’s a time for kids to chill out, it’s also a time for kids to get bored. The Town and Colorado State University have the solution. CSU will be offering fun and healthy camps at the MAC all summer long.

Parents keep your kids active this summer and sign them up for one of four state-licensed camps designed to engage kids ages 5-15. The CSU camps are available from Tuesday, May 29 through Friday, Aug. 3. The camps will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Miller Activity Complex and Philip S. Miller Park. Before and after care will also be available.

CSU is partnering with the Town to provide parents the opportunity to keep their kids engaged and healthy over the summer season. There are four camp themes to choose from for kids up to 15 years old – perfect for those who are too old for a babysitter but too young to work while out of school.

The camp themes include:
FunLIFE – While participating in a variety of sport, physical and classroom activities, campers will learn about nutrition, fitness and healthy lifestyles. Noncompetitive activities may include field and team games, yoga, hiking, swimming, and other outdoor activities. (ages 5-15)
Multi-Sports – This camp will appeal to campers who may not be interested in a full week of a specific sport but would rather try new things. Activities may include lacrosse, ultimate Frisbee, flag football, field hockey and cricket. (ages 5-15)
Music and Movement – Jump start the day with martial arts, dance, kick boxing, aerobic games, group sing-alongs and tumbling. This non-contact camp includes activities that help campers learn and develop rhythmic skills. (ages 5-15)
Outdoor Adventure – Designed for older campers, this camp will help tweens and teens experience some of the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. Activities may include biking, hiking, geocaching and outdoor exploring. This camp also includes a half-day at each of the following: Castle Rock Zip Line Tours, EPIC Adventure Tour and the EPIC Sky Trek (ages 10-15)

While overseen by Parks and Recreation staff, the camp counselors are students from Colorado State University and Arapahoe Community College. Camps start at $195 per week. Before and after care is an additional $5 per visit. Registration, and more information, is available at CRgov.com/Camps.
