Meet The Director


Michael Erickson

Program Director

As the CEO of SummerCampAZ, I started offering Summer Camps over 29 years ago.

My daughter, Trinity, grew up in these camps and I watched her grow emotionally in her interpersonal relationships with other campers, develop discipline, responsibilities, and leadership. Trinity was always smart, but in Middle School, she became bored with her studies and fell into the video game trap. Her grades slipped and as parents, we tried everything to no avail.

Desperate, we sent her away to an academic camp at Berkeley. Being away from home, independent, studying among college students at 12, she became remotivated with her studies, entered college at 14 and was president of 2 clubs, made the Dean’s list, and graduated from Chapman University in 2020.

I can honestly say that Sleepaway Summer Camp at Berkeley gave her the opportunity to grow beyond what we could offer as parents and was life-changing for her. Summer Camps have made such an impact on her, that when she is not working in her field, she can be found running several of our own summer camps.



It doesn’t get more active than this. Big Air, & Urban Air. Together they incorporate over 400 camps throughout the USA. While each park is slightly different, some of their core activities include trampolines (obviously), rock climbing, dodge ball, zip lining, battle beam, obstacle courses, and more!
