Arizona summer camps for boys and girls

Arizona Camps

Summer Camps in Arizona

Arizona summers are notoriously hot and dry, but that doesn’t mean the kids don’t need to stay active and engaged as they wait for school to start again, and the scenic desert landscapes are ripe for learning and exploration. That’s why there are so many great summer camps in Arizona, from Flagstaff to Tucson and everywhere in between. Here’s what you need to know about choosing a camp in Arizona for your child.

Camping in the Grand Canyon State

Arizona’s geography is distinct among the United States, featuring expansive deserts and natural marvels like the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. These settings offer unique opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, and studying local ecology.

Even though sand and cacti may come to mind first, Arizona is also home to many excellent cities and cultural centers. The area surrounding the city of Phoenix hosts numerous summer camps, in Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler, Peoria, and other famed Arizona towns. Going to camp near a city will give your kids the chance to explore the best of both worlds: museums, tech hubs, and other intellectual pursuits along with easy access to the great outdoors.

The weather is great for playing sports, and a whole lot of the summer camps in Arizona are sports focused. Basketball camps are one of the most popular types, possibly because the game can be played indoors, but there are also camps for baseball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming, and much more.

Many of these camps are coed, and there are options for either day programs or residential programs. Whatever your child’s needs are, and whatever they’re interested in, there’s an Arizona summer camp for them.
