About Us


The Clear Creek Rock House is a dynamic youth outreach located in Idaho Springs. We offer free mentoring, tutoring, after-school activities and events, and summer programs for the 6th through 12th graders of Clear Creek County. We have developed our programming through the 40 Colorado Assets by the Search Institute to ensure success with our youth. The Rock House has a mission to offer support, guidance, and advocacy for adolescents while they learn and develop, socially and academically.

Clear Creek County is a stunning location within the Rocky Mountains just 30 miles west of Denver, along the I-70 corridor. Household incomes are heavily dependent on tourism, gaming, mining, or long commutes elsewhere, which directly impact our youth. The population can also be transient or secluded depending on their location, which presents a different kind of challenge to overcome in interpersonal relationships and community support. The Rock House provides adolescents a foundation of stability and positive influence where they can feel safe and flourish.

In April 1999, civic and government entities recognized the significant need for a safe, supervised meeting place with programs and activities for Clear Creek County’s 500-600 teens. Community leaders then spent a year developing and planning. The Clear Creek Rock House was established on September 30, 2000 with Loaves and Fishes. In 2001, the Rock House was relocated in a store-front of downtown Idaho Springs and then moved to its current location off of Highway 103 in 2006. The building has undergone numerous renovations, including a new all-purpose outdoor court, to meet the needs of our organization. After school, you will always find our doors open and a smile to greet you.
