Summer fun at the Commerce City Recreation Center

COMMERCE CITY – Summer is a great time for exploring, and the Commerce City Recreation Center offers several opportunities for youth and teens to explore their environment, their skills and their favorite pastimes.

From camping to cooking, from fitness to field trips and more, recreation programs offer area youth a variety of ways to keep their minds and bodies active.

Girls 12-16 will want to check out this new program, Girls in Motion, created just for them. Participants will meet each week for a few hours of fun learning about and taking part in a variety of activities, from hiking to cooking, to art, fitness and more. Each session ends in an all-day field trip. The first session starts June 8, so hurry to sign up.

Camping is another great summer activity, and teens 12-17 will get, and give, back to nature with the ‘Youth on the Divide’ program. The Recreation Center has partnered with the Continental Divide Trail Alliance to provide an unforgettable experience in the mountains. Teens will spend two days learning about the environment, restoring and rebuilding trails, and having tons of fun. This trip is July 9-11.

For more information on teen summer programs, contact Jenna Johnson at 303-289-3674.

For younger residents and their friends, check out Sports-apalooza. This fun program features kids’ favorite gym games, without the lecture. This is a great way to get heart rates up and get some exercise this summer, with a new game every Monday. Games include dodge ball, Medic, Doctor Pin, tag games and more.

For those interested in exploring their creative sides, try the Bob Ross Painting class, offered this summer as a half-day workshop for youth 8-13.

Want to get out of the house for the day? Kids 6-14 are invited to join us on an exciting excursion to Water World, Pirate’s Cove, the Golden Splash Pad and the Greeley Family FunPlex – all places we’re going in the next few months.

Kids age 6-11 won’t want to miss our overnight camping trip, coming in August. We’ll hike under the stars, team build, cook our own meals and make s’mores. Spots are limited for this fun trip – register early.

And don’t forget our preschool program for children 4-5. We offer two programs, Krafty Kids on Mondays and Movement Madnesday on Wednesday; both classes are 10 a.m.-noon. Krafty Kids offers crafts, activities, games and social interaction, while Movement Madness focuses on giving children new and exciting ways to get exercise while having fun.
