Sun Camp. Fun Camp!
Keep your child active and engaged while on break! Wheat Ridge Sun Camp is a state-licensed day camp for children ages 6 to 14; offered during Jefferson County Public Schools' summer and winter breaks.

Sun Camp daily activities include amenities at the Wheat Ridge Recreation Center like rock climbing, racquetball, gym time and swimming; as well as board games and arts and crafts. In the summer, we frequent nearby Wheat Ridge parks, Anderson Pool and go on exciting field trips every Wednesday!

Most activities are done as a whole group, however we split into two age groups (6 to 9 and 10 to 14) while we're in the Activity Rooms at the Recreation Center.

The maximum number of children we can provide care for each day is 39. While we would love to serve more children and families, our small camp allows us to really get to know each child and build lasting relationships with families like yours year after year!

Our friendly and energetic staff know how to have fun, yet our first priority will always be the safety and well being of your child. Whether your child is attending camp for the first time or returning for the fifth summer in a row, thank you for choosing and trusting us to care for your child!

Sun Camp Objectives:
  • Provide a safe, accepting and caring environment for each child.
  • Encourage the development of new friendships.
  • Build self-confidence through a variety of group and team-building activities.
  • Practice positive discipline techniques and help children develop and use conflict resolution skills.
