MY Denver collaborates with community organizations and youth advocates to bring life to the activities in our centers while providing safe, supportive and quality environments in which young people can play, learn and grow.


Denver recreation centers offer both structured and drop-in activities for MY Denver cardholders when school is out. This could include afterschool, during school breaks and some evening and weekend fun!


Programs are available in a safe environment and are designed to contribute to the academic and social development of all children and youth. Activities vary, falling under five categories:


  • Sports and Wellness
  • Urban Arts and Culture
  • Science, Technology and Education
  • Social Recreation
  • Community Engagement

Denver’s active lifestyle knows no age limit, and older adults and seniors are just as active as anyone. Some already get a free or discounted membership through programs like SilverSneakers® and now, MY Denver PRIME is taking care of those who don’t.

Just like the MY Denver Card gives all Denver kids free access to Denver’s recreation centers and pools, the MY Denver PRIME membership expands free access for all the city’s residents ages 60 and older.
