Denver Rocky Mountain Chess Camps
Founded in 1995, the Rocky Mountain Chess Camp is one of the countries oldest, largest, and most successful children's chess camps in the country. National Chess Master Todd Bardwick, nationally recognized and full-time chess instructor from Denver, organizes and runs the camp. Chess Camps are co-ed, for all ability levels, and are open to ages 6-18. Participants will be divided into similar ability groups (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and age groups for sessions focusing on all aspects of the game including scorekeeping and chess etiquette. Students will compete in mini tournaments for trophies and as well as play in a simultaneous exhibition against an instructor. For 2017, camps are June 12-16 and July 10-12, 9am-4pm.
Hands-on History Summer Camp at Golden History Museums
Hands-on History summer camp is a fun-filled weeklong day camp at the Clear Creek History Park. Campers use their hands as much as their brains in Dirty Jobs and they’ll time-travel to the 1800s when they learn how to prepare biscuits on the wood stove in Pioneer Kids. Camp themes include Art Explorers, Pioneer Kids, Dirty Jobs, and Decision Makers. Camps are divided into 6-to-8-year-olds and 9-to-12-year-olds.
