Active, Affordable, Fun, Safe!
The BEST Summer Camps in every State | Age 5 - 17
In today’s world, all parents are trying to balance the difficult task of finding childcare for their children that is active, fun, safe, and affordable. This past year children have had to stay at home, and this breeds challenges all on its own. Almost all camps in Arizona have canceled field trips in 2021 as packing kids in vans and buses greatly increases exposure. But we know kids need to exercise their minds and bodies to be healthy.
While BIG AIR is all about fun, the Esparza family takes the health and wellness of its team members and guests very seriously. Luis Esparza and his wife, Suhaireirene R. SuadyBarake, are both physicians in Sports medicine and Infectious Disease. Utilizing their expertise, along with guidelines from the CDC and Arizona DHS, the pair have created extensive safety measures that will be in effect at Big Air Chandler.
These include enhanced cleaning of the equipment and frequently touched surfaces through the day, a nightly deep cleaning, and hand sanitizing stations available throughout. Employees will be temperature checked prior to each shift, and they will be required to wear masks. Capacity will be limited to 50%.
We are parents just like you and we have run Summer Camp in Arizona for 28 years! What we have learned is how to create a camp experience that kids love and parents appreciate.
Additional things that separate us from other camps:
- We are a much smaller camp. Most of the larger summer camps have up to 800 to 900 kids in one facility. With that many children in one place it is harder to maintain the safety guidelines and there is a larger chance of exposure.
- Major activities every day. Kids get bored quickly. We have a very active camp that includes fun, special activities throughout the day& are included with your tuition!
- Our groups are smaller. We divide our campers by age. Siblings outside of their regular age groups can still be together, but in general, a 5-year-old has a different expectation of arts and crafts, movies, etc. than a teenager. We have 5 glass-walled rooms. Each room has a teacher supervising the age group. We rotate through the activities by groups. For example, the 5-year-olds might be doing an arts project while the 6/7-year-old group is doing sports. The 8/9-year-old group is building a Lego project. The 10/11-year-olds are doing Laser Tag. The 12 and above group a gaming competition. Then every 30 minutes they switch to a different module. We have plenty of experienced adult supervisors and teachers to lead each group and to ensure they are all participating. Again, smaller groups mean close supervision to make sure hands are clean, not sharing food, etc.
