Father Son Retreat

Dad, are you asking yourself: where is the time going?

Are you finding yourself thinking more and more about your son's social life?

Would you like just a few moments to laugh with your son again like the good old days?

As your son begins to navigate his way through the daunting teen boy-world, many memories are surfacing for you from transforming your young super hero to learning how to act like a man.

Join other DCSD fathers and sons on an overnight retreat in the middle of a forest in Larkspur, Colorado. Expect to engage in games, campfires and rich conversation with your son and other dads in our community. Leave feeling more connected with fond memories to cherish for years to come.

  • Sleep in a heated cabin with real toilets.
  • Play games and engage in great conversation.
  • Eat two fabulous meals in a cozy dining hall.
  • Enjoy s'mores by a campfire.

For current DCSD 8th and 9th grade sons and their fathers.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
