You may know Chris Daniels best as the energetic frontman for blues band Chris Daniels & The Kings, but lately it’s other people’s music that’s been on his mind.

Arts and crafts used to be part of summer camp. Now? They are summer camp.

The Denver Art Museum has camps for future filmmakers, fashion designers and architects. Kids can focus on everything from the culinary arts to comic book illustration as part of the Colorado Academy’s summer programs. At Boulder’s Imagination Circus Arts camp, the kids have high-flying aspirations.

Campers can learn everything from juggling to the trapeze to acro-stunting, said ICA founder Marcy Gallardo.

"The majority of the kids attending the camp are trying this out for the first time," Gallardo said. "That’s what makes it such a great experience – anyone can try it."
