Programs

Gold Crown Enrichment offers a variety of programs throughout the year. Depending on the community's needs, our staff implements new events to best serve youth. We also work with schools in Jeffco Public Schools to introduce students to new technologies.  At our Summer Camps, we focus on the social and emotional development of teens in addition to exploring creative interests.  Be sure to check back each season to see what new opportunities are available.

2024 Summer STEAM Camps

3D Design Craft

What is possible in the world of 3D Printing? Go beyond Thingiverse (digital designs for physical objects) and embark on a journey to create your own unique products and creations using 3D design software. At camp, we expand beyond the basics while encouraging campers to explore and experiment with various 3D design programs. But, it doesn't stop there – the real magic happens when your creations come to life through 3D printing technology. Witness your designs transform from digital concepts to tangible objects (that you can take home) as we delve into the fascinating world of 3D printing.
