SuperKIDS Expo Returns April 20th in Lafayette

SK Camp Guide presses in March

After four long years, Yellow Scene Magazine is bringing back SuperKids!

From 2009-20219 SuperKids was the largest family event highlighting camps, schools, extracurriculars and community services along with lots of fun for the kids; bouncy castle, rock-climbing wall, activities, performances and more!

This year, our Superhero theme is Barbie, but everyone is encouraged to dress up in their favorite Superhero costume!

The Return of Superkids is in Lafayette this year, at Jax Outdoor Gear at Hwy 287 & S. Boulder Road. The fun runs from 10 am – 3pm on April 20th, 2024. Rain date April 27th. (*We will not cancel for light sprinkles or gray skies, only torrential weather.) Wear your favorite superhero costume and bring your superhero heart for a great family day.

Coupled with the event, is SuperKids Camp Guide, which publishes March, 2024. In addition to the largest camp directory and the largest circulation in town, we have four great features, camps for kids on all spectrums, the history of the Black Cowboy, and AI impacts on society and of course the FREE Camp Listings.

Camp listings are free, so be sure to check last year’s camp listing out and make sure yours is updated. If you are not listed or need to make an update fill this form out.

Shavonne Blades grew up on the West Coast but moved to Colorado in High School. She left for California after school and returned to Colorado in 1990. She got her start in media at the age of 21 in Santa Cruz, California as an advertising sales rep. Having no experience and nothing more than a couple of years as an art college attendee she felt the bug to work in media at a young age. She learned that by helping her customers with design and marketing, their campaigns would be far more successful and has made a 30+ year career in design, copywriting, and marketing for her clients. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPy4MMdcfLg. She has always chosen to work in Independent Media and believes deeply in the need for true, authentic Community Journalism. She is proud that YS has never compromised journalism standards in its 20+ history and continues to print YS on paper monthly while also expanding web coverage. She has worked at 3 Alternative Weeklies and founded Yellow Scene Magazine in 2000.
