A DU summer tradition and the perfect mix of play and practice for ages 5-11!

Pioneer Athletic Super Summer (P.A.S.S.) Camp is a weekly sports and wellness summer camp for campers ages 5–11. Entering its 26th summer at DU, P.A.S.S. Camp is a DU summer tradition for the University and the Denver community.

P.A.S.S. Camp focuses on sportsmanship, teamwork and the fundamentals of sports. Campers will have the opportunity to experience the NCAA Division I varsity fields, courts and rinks that the Denver Pioneers call home.

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

For participants beyond a beginner level, we recommend attending the Denver Pioneers summer camps.


We'll see you in 2020!

Sports Majors

During each week of P.A.S.S. Camp, campers will work with coaches who specialize in one of our five offered Sports Majors including college athletes, high school coaches and local professionals. These coaches will give your children the opportunity to experience practices and games first-hand and potentially introduce them to their new passion.

Majors rotate daily, and the skills learned in each are revisited throughout the week allowing campers to fully explore the sport.
