Dream BIG Baseball Camp will be under the excellent leadership of Geno Espineli.

Geno Espineli came to Denver, by way of Texas, in 2011 after an eight-year Major (and Minor) League Baseball career. Growing up in a single-parent household, Geno sought guidance, mentoring and discipline through the game of baseball. He realized that his coaches were his biggest influences throughout his career and found his calling in coaching and private instruction. During Geno’s high school, collegiate and professional playing days, he helped run numerous day camps and enjoyed teaching baseball techniques to players of all skill levels and ages.

Geno attended the University of Texas and Texas Christian University before graduating with a degree in Sport Industry Operations from Metro State University. He is now a carer firefighter/paramedic in the City of Lakewood, and he enjoys spending his days off outdoors with his wife and two daughters.

Each and every child will get the proper attention and instruction so that they can improve and have tons of fun at camp!

Dream BIG Day Camp is excited to welcome back Karl Wimer to the helm of Boys Lacrosse this summer. Karl is a long time lacrosse coach with a focus on developing kids in all aspects of their lives.

Karl played high school lacrosse in Colorado, winning a State Championship with Cherry Creek, where he was All-America and the first winner of the Doc Stabler Award (top scholar/lacrosse player in the state). Karl graduated from Yale University where he was All-America on the 2nd ranked team in the country, and also lettered in football. Upon graduation, Karl spent a year in Manchester, England, coaching and developing lacrosse. From 1992-94, Karl helped develop field lacrosse in the Czech Republic, and coached the national team in their first World Championship in 1994.

Since then, Karl has coached and played in various countries around the world, and all over the US, from youth to high school to club levels. Karl was also involved in the early development of the CityLax lacrosse Club in Denver and continues to work in inner-city lacrosse development. His youth club teams (he has coached hundreds of kids pre-K through 8th grade) consistently finish in the top two of the highest divisions. His favorite challenge is working with athletes from other sports and providing them the tools and direction to be successful in lacrosse.

In addition to being an accomplished executive marketer and award winning cartoonist, Karl has a real soft spot for mint chocolate chip ice cream, The Princess Bride, and hitting the bumps in knee-deep powder. He is a father to his 18 year old son who shares his passions.

The curriculum uses the thrill of cooking to expand each camper’s taste for of healthy, seasonal food, and is specifically designed to let little chefs explore and excel! While touching and tasting, campers use all their senses to cultivate a taste for eating nutritiously and seasonally abundant whole foods.

The fun, engaging and creative Coolinary cooking instructors add a sense of fun and excitement as they combine the love of cooking with nutritional information, jokes, geography, math skills and history to inspire a lifetime love of healthy family cooking! Campers will take pride in practicing a culinary skill, and will get to enjoy the fruits (or vegetables) of their labor at the end of each class.

By the end of Coolinary Camp, the campers (and their grown-ups) will have online access to a collection of unique Sticky Fingers recipes to share – and repeat – with their families at home. Note: Any and all dietary restrictions can and will be accommodated.
