It's that time of year again.  The kids are finished with the school year and the start of summer is here.  How joyous it would be to have the summer off from work and just get to be a kid again, but I digress.  Most of us would like our kids to be active and doing things all summer long, but most of us also don't want to spend this month's mortgage on sending our kids to summer camp.  Here are 6 low cost and free summer programs in the Denver area.
