Rodarte Community Center Gears up for Spring and Summer Camps


The Rodarte Community Center, part of the City of Greeley’s Culture, Parks and Recreation Department, is gearing up for their Fun in the Spring and Summer camp programs. These camp sessions are designed to provide a broad range of activities such as STEM, arts & crafts and recreational programs, as well as field trips, engaging students and getting them involved in different projects while they are on vacation from school. Registration will begin Feb 4 for Fun in the Spring, which will be offered March 11-15. Fun in the Sun early registration for those with a financial need will be open March 4-31. General Registration for the summer camp will be open April 15-May 17.

The Rodarte Community Center revamped their program in 2018 along with their expansion that added three components to the existing facility. The construction project included a new ADA accessible ramp on the west side of the facility, along with a vestibule and a reconfigured front desk. Customers and parents now enter into the front entrance on the west side of the facility, are greeted by a Customer Service Representative, where they are cleared to gain access to the rest of the building which can only be accessed by a proxy card reader.

The goal is the keep students safe while attending programs at the Rodarte Community Center, whether they are participating in the After School program, Fun in the Spring/Sun program or boxing program. They also purchased child-tracking software, called “Brightwheel” to check participants in, track activities, incentives, academic progress and upload lesson plans. Parents can download the Brightwheel App where they gain access to these features.

Upon arrival to pick up students, parents scan a QR code through the “Brightwheel” App or enter a unique pin to have approval to pick up students. Parents are able to give additional approval for other family members to pick up their children as well. Parents can view photos and videos of their children while in attending programs at the Rodarte Community Center. Parents may also message staff and have direct lines of communication with their children. “It is very accessible and easy to use. The fact that staff consistently add information makes it nice to know of upcoming events, what my children are up to during the day and a direct way to contact me about my kids without having to call me while I am work,” said Jessica Diaz, a parent of three in the program. “Check in and out is a quick and easy process as well.”
