About CCN Colfax Community Network (CCN) advocates for and works on behalf of families and children residing in low-income transient housing (primarily residential motels) along Colfax Avenue. By providing information, services, and programs, we strengthen and improve family and community life. These summer camps are a chance for children to experience a full day of activities and you get to be a part of this! Each week is packed with new experiences and activities that open the mind. The camp runs Mondays-Thursdays from Monday, July 18th through Thursday, July 26th (excluding July 4th).
What will I be doing?
You will help out with the camp and be a mentor for a child at CCN. Each day will be different but here’s an idea of the type of activities you will participate in: swim, hike Red Rocks, play kickball at the park, compete in an egg-drop contest, help run lemonade stands, and so much more! Because of the instability and transient home life of many of the camp participants, it’s highly encouraged to be able to commit consistently 2-4 days a week for the entirety of the camp.
- Lunch/snacks for the day
- Comfortable shoes and clothes
- Swim supplies on swim days (Thursdays)
- Fees, when necessary
If any volunteers are over 18, they need to complete a background check. You will need to contact Lauren to reserve your spot to volunteer.
