Guide to Summer Camps in Colorado Springs: A Resource of Day Camps, Sports & Dance Programs, STEM Camps and more!

Spring has nearly arrived in Southern Colorado, which means it is time to think ahead to summer camps. Early registration has begun for most programs, so we compiled this Guide to Summer Camps in and around Colorado Springs to help you plan. This list covers everything from outdoor adventures to dance, sports, and art. We recognize many moms spend extensive amounts of time piecing together week-to-week activities for the summer. We hope this guide is a helpful one-stop shop for all your summer camp wishes!

Pikes Peak Athletics

Pikes Peak Athletics offers swim camps geared toward achieving comfort and safety in and around the water. These camps take place during the workweek Monday-Friday and are offered to all levels of swimmers, starting at age 4.

Campers will engage in two group swim lessons daily, focused on learning and consistently repeating skills in the water. PPA also understands the importance of safety, so swimmers will participate in interactive safety lessons each day. Campers will receive the opportunity to practice their lesson skills and socialize with new friends in daily recreational swim.
