On September 5, Kent Denver's Upper School held its annual Club Fair. Students and faculty sponsors from 46 clubs pitched a wide range of activities to new and returning Upper-Schoolers.
Upper-School clubs include some of Kent Denver's most high-profile extracurricular groups such as speech and debate, robotics, the Sun Devils' Advocate, Model UN and mock trial. Other clubs appeal to more unique interests, like bee keeping, Ultimate Frisbee, knitting, and rugby. There are also clubs for sports fans, women in business, entrepreneurs, inventors, writers, and students who want to gain "life skills." Click here for a full list of this year's offerings.
While the range of interests represented by these clubs is amazingly broad, there is one unifying element—they are all student-driven organizations. Any student can propose a club, recruit a faculty sponsor, join the official roster of clubs and welcome members. Sponsors provide assistance where needed, but students provide the core leadership and energy for each club. For this reason, the club list changes from year to year based on student involvement and interests.
