P.A.S.S. Camp

Pioneer Athletic Super Summer (P.A.S.S.) Camp is a DU summer tradition. Entering its 23rd summer, P.A.S.S. Camp provides a weekly sport camp environment for campers ages 5 – 11.

P.A.S.S. Camp is a developmental sports camp focusing on sportsmanship, teamwork and the fundamentals of sports. Campers will have the opportunity to experience the Division I varsity fields, courts and rinks.

We provide all required sports equipment. All camp activities take place on the University of Denver campus.
