Boys & Girls Club of Metro Denver's Gates Camp

2013 Gates Camp Breakfast A Huge Success

March 18, 2013

The annual Gates Camp Breakfast helps support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver’s Summer Camp Program in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Over the course of seven weeks of summer, more than 500 young members experience the wonder of the Rocky Mountains while learning important life lessons and building life-long friendships. For many of the campers, it is their very first experience in the outdoors. This year, attendees listened to an uplifting message from CBS4 Sports Anchor Vic Lombardi.

Gates Camp is a residential summer camp facility located at the base of the Indian Peaks Wilderness area west of Boulder, Colorado. The unique camp offers Boys & Girls Club members, most from economically-disadvantaged families, a chance to escape the sometimes stark realities of city life and gain new perspectives. At Gates Camp, kids can be different, experience new activities, learn a variety of new skills, and try new behaviors. Campers have the opportunity to make deep connections with both nature and dedicated staff. Simply put, Gates Camp gives kids a chance to be kids—in the neighborhoods where the campers live, that’s a luxury they don’t often have.

Norris Design has been contributing to Gates Camp for over 8 years, providing not only camper sponsorship, but also developing and producing the Camp's promotional videos each year. 

This year, the breakfast raised over $100,000, which will help send over 500 Club members to camp this summer.
