Camp of the Creative ArTS
We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our camps for June. We currently do not have any camp scheduled for July, however, if we feel can safely run camps, we will post a schedule as soon as possible. The safety of our campers, their families, and our staff is of utmost importance and at this point, we do not feel comfortable moving forward with our scheduled summer programs. We look forward to the opportunity to sing and dance and create together again!
If you are currently registered for a June camp you will be contacted about a refund as soon as possible.
We wish you all well as we navigate this difficult time. Thank you for your support and understanding.
Jennifer, Kelly, Katy, and Vanessa
Camp of the Creative Arts
We are a summer program providing high quality, meaningful, creative experiences for children, 3-6 years of age, in the areas of Visual Art, Dance, Music, Spanish and Yoga.
Since 2009 we have served nearly 1000 Denver area families, many who return year after year!
We offer several, week long camps that focus on engaging kids in the creative process while making friends and having fun. This is a perfect first time camp, taught in a safe and nurturing environment! We provide fun and meaningful experiences for children to explore the world around them through the arts, language and movement.
Located in NW Denver, CCA was created in 2008 by Northwest Denver teachers specializing in language and the arts. All driven and inspired by the creative process, we came together with a vision to develop a high quality arts enrichment program for kids.

Visual Art, Yoga, Music, Spanish or Dance.
