Boost Camp fun learning

Around 100 youngsters will wrap up a fun and educational summer on Friday, Aug. 2, when the Access Roaring Fork’s summer Boost Camp at Rifle Middle School ends.

Access Roaring Fork is a nonprofit organization that partners with schools to help students develop academic and social skills in a safe and healthy environment with extended day programs.

The camp began July 8 and ran daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Certified teachers led morning reading and writing exercises. The children, ages 6 – 11, were fed a free lunch, and afternoons were spent in fitness, arts and reading activities, overseen by counselors. Field trips occurred on Fridays, some as far away as the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction.
