Not only is Arvada High School’s Sports Camp free, “to me, it’s like Disney World,” said athletic director Dan Quaratino.
“We’re providing lifelong experiences that the kids will never forget,” he said. “You share this experience with everybody.”
The Arvada Sports Camp will be held from July 29 to Aug. 1, running from six to eight p.m. each night at Arvada High. The all-sports camp provides an opportunity for K-6 students to play a number of sports including volleyball, soccer and football.
“Some sports and clubs can be extremely costly, and our kids just don’t have many opportunities,” Quaratino said. “This is providing for our kids.”
The program brought in 293 students last year, and the school hopes the camp will continue to grow — with possible plans to connect with new partners, such as chiropractors or the Chamber of Commerce, in future years, he said.
Parents can register their students for the camp online at arvadasports.com. Additionally, Quaratino invited family members to enjoy a dinner and watch their kids engage in camp activities on Aug. 1.
“Even if they don’t ever play a sport, it’s giving the kids and family members just a fun atmosphere,” he said. “It’s so crucial to get our community together.”
