 Blueprint 4 Summer

Are you ready for summer? Are your kids wanting to learn to mountain bike? Do you have an aspiring actor? As a parent, are you concerned about summertime learning loss? Do you need reliable before and after camp care? ReSchool Colorado, an initiative of the Donnell-Kay Foundation, has partnered with Blueprint4 Summer to offer a free, web-based resource to families to help research and plan their summer learning activities.

Blueprint4 Summer Colorado allows families to search for camp sessions in a variety of ways, including: activity type (sports, dance, STEM, music, etc), scholarship availability, before and aftercare options, cost, location and much more. Though not required, parents can sign-up for a FREE Blueprint4 Summer CO account and can bookmark favorite summer sessions, save your search results, and print a calendar that maps out the summer plans, color-coded for each of your children.

Northfield Nighthawks Boys Soccer Summer Program

The Northfield Nighthawks Boys Soccer program is proud to bring you its first summer of soccer camps! Northfield soccer camps are designed to mirror the fun, technical, attacking and goal scoring culture that Northfield High School continues to embrace.

Led by current head coach Jason Keever, each camp focuses on maximizing time spent on the ball, with an emphasis on proper technical repetition that progresses into application through game-like situations. During the week all players are grouped according to age level and/or ability, and each group will have a technical coordinator throughout the week.

All players will learn, practice, and then apply various skills across an overall attacking themed environment, including: 1v1 attacking, cutting and turning of the ball, breaking pressure,  controlling/serving flighted balls, and striking/finishing. Each day will finish with small sided games, and there will be a surprise autograph signing by a current Colorado Rapids player!
