Summer Camps for Kids in Arizona
ACTIVE, AFFORDABLE, FUN, SAFE!
Day Camps Ages 5 - 12 | Sleepaway Camp Ages 7 - 17
Sleepaway Camp Activities
Horses are amazing animals. Loyal and loving. During the horseback riding sessions campers will learn how to take care of the horses, brushing and feeding them before taking them on a trail ride through the forest. Inexperienced camper’s horses will be tethered to an experienced trainer from Carters Farms giving a “one on one” trainer to camper ratio to ensure the camper is safe through the ride. Like most of the activities, Campers will have multiple opportunities to ride and enjoy this experience.
Nature Hike to Jesse James Hideout
Overnight Camps in Prescott are known for being embedded in nature. Thirty-to-forty-foot boulders surround this popular nature hike to Jesse James hideout. Your guide, Marline Newton, has been giving these tours for many years. Learn about the various plants and trees as you hear about the legends of Jesse James many exploits.
Fire Circle / Smores
Who doesn’t like to sit around the fire, sing songs, roast marshmallows and make Smores? This is maybe the most popular activity at our camp. Occasionally we get rained out, or there is not enough rain, so the Forest Service won’t let us make fires. If that happens, we move into the activities center and take our party there.
Tug of War
It’s Cabin vs Cabin. And there can only be one victor. Who will take the honor of being the Camp Tug of War Champions?
Volleyball is an all-time favorite. Time passes by quickly as you build teamwork, friendships, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Arts & Crafts
One of the nice things about being outdoors is your mom can’t complain if you make a mess. Maybe you want to leave your handprint in washable ink on a tree. Make a beaded bracelet for yourself and your mom. We have many fun arts & crafts projects for you to choose from. You are only limited by your imagination.
Jesse James loved his gold. And now you can follow in the steps of the old-time miners in the great American gold rush! Your leaders will be teaching you to pan and you will go home with a vile of gold as a souvenir (fools gold).
Pack your swimsuit or plan to air dry, but you will get wet! We will crank up the music and create a giant wall of Foam!
Get your popcorn, hot chocolate, and blanket – it’s movie time! Sit with your cabinmates and laugh, cry, and get lost in a different reality.
Canoeing on Gold Water Lake
Safety is first – especially with water sports. Canoeing on Gold Water Lake is simply magical. For younger campers, two counselors canoeing – 1 to 2 campers in the middle. Everyone has life vests and canoers are supervised by our staff and Canoeing Service Staff. These waters shimmer in the morning moving along with the wildlife amount the pine trees.
Carters Farm is back with all their animals, Horses, llamas, pigs, chickens, and more! This is an up close and personal opportunity to pet them, hold them, and of course take the ultimate selfies! Overnight Summer Camps have never been better.
Sleepaway Summer Camps are active. You’re going to need your water bottle for this one. Cabins will battle for the ultimate prize – to see who will be the soccer team champion!
Sometimes Summer Camp kids just need to chill with their friends and play board games. We have them all. Bonding with your cabin mates never got better.
What can be more fun than this! We have multiple Superslides to do your thing with your friends. Summer Camp for kids is all about fun in the sun – and we have a lot of it!
Team competition brings out the best in all of us. Sleepaway summer camp kids will compete with their cabin mates on the field playing Flag Football. Exercising the body and mind is what overnight summer camps were made for.
Under the amazing starlight this is a one-of-a-kind experience in the dusk hours before it gets too dark. It’s a ton of fun, we will follow it with a hay ride or outdoor movie!
Can food be an activity? We think so. Our kitchen staff will serve three wonderful meals a day and beyond that we will have healthy food competition. How much watermelon can you eat? Who can finish the bowl of ice cream the fastest? Only time will tell.
The best way to describe GaGa Ball is a “safer and more exciting version of dodgeball”. The entire game is played inside of a GaGa ball pit, which is an octagon-shaped area surrounded by a 3-foot fence. The favorite sport among Sleepaway Camps in Prescott!
This is just too cool. Everyone gets their own wand and bubble filled container to make the biggest bubbles that they can. Watch as the bubbles merge and glisten in the sunlight!
Spooky nighttime hayride. That says it all. The campers always like to scream and tell stories. One of the most fun things you can do sitting down.
Have you ever been away from the city looking at the sky? The stars take on new meaning. Campers will enjoy the Prescott Astronomy Club taking them on a tour of the heavens. See the craters on the moon. See planets that are not visible with naked eye. Catch a glimpse of a falling star and make a wish.
SPOTLIGHT SINGING / DANCING
This is your chance to show us your stuff. Karaoke with music, lip sync, or show us your dance moves. Go solo or mix it up with your friends. This is always a good time.
Free time & camp store
Sometimes we just need to unplug and do nothing at all. We love to make homemade ice cream and going to the camp store is a favorite past time.
As busy as our kids summer camps are, there is value in kicking off your shoes and putting your toes in the stream, or taking an afternoon nap.
I originally took my son here as part of a one week special. We immediately fell in love with the staff that we decided to sign him up for the weekly class and their summer program. This place makes it a fun learning environment for everyone, definitely recommend it!
