For the fourth year in a row, Denver University and the Gary and Leslie Howard Family Foundation, team up to provide a weeklong camp for 9-11 year old inner-city kids in the Denver area. Check out the pictures below for a glimpse inside the camp that offers hockey, education, and fun at no cost to these kids and their families.
