Summer Camp Spotlight: Town of Castle Rock Youth Camps Serve Ages 3-14

March 24, 2021

Summertime is for exploration, adventure, discovery, and learning. From sports to coding, robotics to creative arts, the Town of Castle Rock’s Parks and Recreation Summer Camps offer programs to meet every child's interest!

Summer camps provide a great opportunity for children to develop critical skills and learn the values of teamwork and sportsmanship in fun, creative, and safe environments. Led by top-tier professional instructors who are passionate about teaching and child development, our summer camps help your child get the most out of their summer.

Weeklong camps allow kids to take some risks and try new things that they don't have the opportunity to do at school or might not have otherwise chosen.

Kids can participate in camps that encourage creativity and imagination, such as game development, science, and creative crafts. They can choose to learn new physical activities, such as fencing, soccer, flag football, lacrosse, baseball/softball, or kickball. Or, they can dive into STEM camps and learn problem-solving and critical thinking through LEGO model building, robotics, or code and cipher development.

Choose from a wide variety of both full and half-day camps, as well as specialty camps.
