Summer Camps For Kids 2018

Summer Camps For Kids At The Taft House | The Meadows Castle Rock CO

I know we just finished spring break, and I’m sure we’ll see a few more snowflakes in The Meadows, but it’s also time to look forward to summer break! Sure, you’ve probably planned a weekend here and there, and maybe a “Big Trip,” but what about every other day? What are your kids going to do to keep busy? This summer, The Meadows master planned community has a few fun summer camps for kids planned and here is a quick overview so that you can plan ahead.

Creative Tweens Camp

Tweens can have a tough time finding fun in the summer without a device – at least mine have in the past. The Meadows is offering a chance for them to express their creativity each Wednesday in June. The summer camp will help your tween between the ages of 9 and 13 find their own unique voice through art. Each week, class will begin with your kid creating a Gratitude Art Journal. Then they’ll move onto the week’s main project, which will feature them creating artwork with clay, abstract acrylic painting, mixed media art, and more. The summer camp promises to be a fun way for your tween to express their creative voice! Your child can attend one or all of the classes, it’s up to them. You can register and learn more here.

It’s your chance to drop your kids off at The Grange for a few hours for fun, educational activity. Each session will be held from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. It will give you the opportunity to run a few unassisted errands or get some work done in peace. My kids have been to quite a few of these afternoons, and they have had a blast! They see friends from school and meet new friends in the neighborhood. Learn about each week’s activity and register here.
