City of Thornton offers three summer camp options. We have two full-day camps for ages 5-13 years old and a partial day camp for ages 2½-10 year olds. All camps provide a safe fun-filled summer of activities.

Kid Camp provides a variety of learning experiences incorporating social, emotional, imaginative, cognitive, and physical development. This is the perfect camp for families looking for creative and educational summer activities that do not require full-day attendance. These experiences take place in a fun environment where children discover through their play, projects, organized activities and interactions. Come join us for a variety of arts and crafts, yoga, fitness and sports, cooking, science and fun educational activities!


The city of Thornton Kid Camp is a state licensed program. Completed registration packets, including up-to-date physicals and immunization records from the child’s physician, are required before your child can start classes. For additional information, parent handbook and enrollment forms, please visit the link to the right of the screen. *No classes July 4.

All forms must be completed in their entirety and returned at least one week prior to the start of class.

During the summer months all city of Thornton preschool classes are held at the Carpenter Recreation Center. Classes will resume at the Thornton Community Center in the fall.
