2020 Summer CATCH Camp
We are excited to announce that Summer CATCH Camp will be offered in collaboration with the Summit School District. Summer CATCH Camp is open exclusively to graduating K-5th graders of Summit School District, with camp locations at Dillon Valley Elementary, Frisco Elementary, Silverthorne Elementary, Summit Cove Elementary, and Upper Blue Elementary. Summer CATCH Camp will combine a traditional day camp experience with science education, literacy activities, and activities from the Second Step Social-Emotional curriculum. Thanks to a wide variety of community funders, this program is offered on a sliding fee scale and includes breakfast and lunch. This program spans the entire summer and is divided into nine 1-week sessions.
Due to COVID-19 the program will be offered within multiple small groups of no more than 10 students at Dillon Valley, Frisco, Silverthorne, Summit Cove, and Upper Blue Elementary Schools. Please note that transportation will not be offered for the 2020 summer and we ask that students are registered for a program in close proximity to each student's home.

Health & Safety
For over 40 years, Keystone Science School’s top priority has been the health and safety of those we serve. As developments progress with COVID-19, we have remained proactive in assessing our standard precautions against the latest recommendations from the CDC, WHO, and local health authorities.
We’re also continuing to follow the strict protocols required by Colorado child care licensing and American Camp Association accreditation to create a clean and sanitary environment. Please refer to our comprehensive health and safety pages which explain both our long-standing best practices, as well as new actions implemented in light of COVID-19:
Drop Off and Pick Up Options
Keystone Science School has made several changes to camper drop-off in an effort to manage risk of all parents and campers. Campers will immediately participate in a brief health pre-screen before exiting their vehicle. Upon completion of the pre-screen, all campers and families will be asked to follow social distancing guidelines as outlined by the CDC.
Keystone Science School reserves the right to refuse any camper from participation if a health screen is failed. This protocol means that KSS will not be allowing campers to travel as an unaccompanied minor and all pick up and drop off locations outside of the camper’s registered program location have been suspended.
Drop-off and Pick-Up
Drop Off: 8:30am-9:00am
Pick Up: 4:30pm-5:00pm (I.D. Required)
We are grateful for a community of generous individuals, corporations, foundations, and our local government whose contributions make this program a reality for local Summit County families and their children.
