[ARCHIVED] City Council Approves Budget for Six Week Summer Camp

Summer Camp 2020 NewsFlash

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, COLORADO-June 17, 2020-There will be lots of happy campers this summer when the city-run, licensed Adventure Bound Summer Camps return starting Monday, July 6. City Council approved a supplemental budget request during last night’s meeting allocating up to $65,000 toward the program.  

“Our Summer Camp provides much needed childcare for community members returning to work,” said Recreation Manager Alexis Wolf. “Every summer has a story and this one will be dramatically different, but our staff is excited to connect with campers and help families during this difficult time.”

This summer’s camp will run for six weeks, ending August 13 and will look significantly different than in past years. Enrollment is limited based on the needs of families and the community. Participants will be prioritized based on employment, need, income, and residency, along with other factors.

In order to maintain consistent groups (per current health orders), camps will be offered on a weekly basis only, Monday through Thursday. There will be no daily registrations or prorated camps for partial attendance this summer. In addition, the specialized ASSET camps will not be offered this summer. The weekly cost is $175 per child, with partial scholarships available to those who meet specific income eligibility criteria.

Due to the limited enrollment criteria, families seeking childcare must submit an application that will then be reviewed by staff. Once applications have been vetted, staff will reach out directly to selected families no later than Monday, June 29.

Summer Camp Application & Registration Form, as well as additional camp information, is available online at steamboatsprings.net/summer. The first round of application review will take place next week, so all materials must be completed by 8AM on Monday, June 22 to be considered.

Prior to submitting an application, we ask that parents review the Summer Camp Parent Handbook and COVID-19 Mitigation Plan to ensure that they are comfortable with the new policies and procedures that will be in place for camps this summer. Links to this information are available online via the Summer Camp page.

If you have questions, encounter any issues with the online application, or are unable to complete the necessary paperwork online, please contact Parks & Recreation at 970.879.4300.
