9th Grade College Readiness Camp

For DPS students and their families

 
9th Grade Camp Application 2018

 Each summer, this unique three-week program offers students entering 9th grade an opportunity to participate in classes, field trips and other activities focused on expanding their knowledge and skills in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) and language arts.

Over the course of three weeks, camp participants attend a 60- to 90-minute class Mondays through Thursdays, with field trips and teambuilding activities scheduled each Friday. Classes are taught by MSU Denver faculty, assisted by MSU Denver students who serve as tutors and mentors, and are held on the MSU Denver campus. This year camp will be offered June 11-29th and will serve students from Bruce Randolph School, Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy, and Manual High School.

The summer camp program, sponsored by the Colorado Department of Education’s 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant program, Denver Public Schools and MSU Denver’s Center for Urban Education (CUE), is designed to strengthen young people’s motivation, readiness and planning for success in high school and beyond. Since its inception in 2012, the summer camps have served nearly 400 entering 9th graders and hired more than 70 MSU Denver students as mentors.
