Extended Learning Summer Camps

Registration is now open.

Please note: Due to historically low enrollment and state-specific licensing guidelines, we will not be offering ECE camps this summer. Four-year-olds who turn 5 by October 1st may register for Discovery Link camps. Our community partners Kid SmART and Springboard are offering ECE programs. Please visit their websites for more information.

Are you looking for fun and engaging experiences this summer? Cruise into summer camps with Denver Public Schools – Extended Learning and Community Schools (ELCS).
