SPREE Camps are educational, outdoor, and active programs. Education will be hands-on and engaging, but will require listening, respect, and cooperation by campers. Structured lessons will be broken up by snacks, free-time, quiet time, and other activities. It may be helpful to discuss the educational component with your child if they attend camp to ensure this program is a good fit.
While we do have indoor facilities, we are outdoors in all sorts of weather at SPREE camps. Please dress for the changing Colorado climate. We will adjust location or structure of activities, if needed.
Camp runs from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Please note 3:30 – 5:00 pm requires an additional after care fee.

SPREE is my favorite camp. It’s why I come here every time I can!
SPREE is hands down (my child’s) favorite camp EVER and she has dedicated a spot in her room specifically to "SPREE Memories."
When I dropped my daughter off at SPREE this morning, she ran as fast as she could to SPREE HQ out in front of me. I have never seen her act this way about school or a special camp before. She LOVES SPREE Camp, thank you for this opportunity.
