Helping Kids Grow

Douglas County Libraries (DCL) is offering 11 weeklong, half-day kids camps this summer at various DCL locations throughout the county. These engaging, interactive camps give kids ages 5-12 a chance to experience fun activities, learn new things, and even make new friends.

While Camp DCL is a great value for the cost, it is sometimes financially difficult for families (for many different reasons) to send their kids to camp. That’s where the DCL Foundation and generous donors and sponsors like Tammy Lopez of Castle Pines Allstate are making a difference.

The DCL Foundation recently granted 13 summer camp scholarships to local children who wouldn’t have otherwise been able to attend. Those kids will get the chance to discover something they love, connect with other kids, build relationships, and gain self-confidence. We’re thrilled to be a part of that!

Thank you for supporting DCL and the Foundation in your giving. It has a direct impact on our ability to inspire the love of reading, connection and discovery in our youngest community members.

“Due to a scholarship, my son was able to attend [the spring] LEGO Superhero Camp in Castle Rock. It is not possible to explain our gratitude for this opportunity and how it positively impacted our son and our family. Thank you. Thank you from our entire family. We appreciate you and this incredible library system!” – Susan J.

 

You’re invited to the Foundation’s annual Fete des Fables Gala on Friday, September 27, at CU South Denver, where you can celebrate and support the literacy and library programming that makes a difference in our community. Join us!
