The Proud Parent Parade
As parents ourselves, we understand the struggle of short attention spans and long school breaks. We also totally get that too much of a good thing isn’t always a good thing. That’s why we designed our camps in Arizona to be different from other camp programs for kids.
Our approach to camps is something we’re proud of. We’re excited to introduce everything that Camps for Kids offers to your kids.
No matter your approach to parenting or camps — your focus is on your kids. We’re proud parents, too. We know how to toot our kids’ (and our camps’) horns.
Weekly Themes and What That Means
Weekly day-camps are for kids ages 5-12, some are for ages 7-17.
Organizing our camps by theme sets us apart. It also sets some really clear and very kid-graspable expectations. Letting kids choose their camp experience gives them more confidence and commitment.
Children who attend themed camps automatically share similar interests and hobbies with their peers. The unifying bond of a theme can help counteract the nerves and newness kids may face when attending a camp.
All that is good news for parents and makes for a much more enjoyable experience all around.

Do Camp a Little Differently This Year
We believe in a healthy balance of entertainment, education, enrichment, experienced staff, and exploration.
That was a tall order to fill when we started Camps for Kids over 30 years ago. And the gadgets and technology of the younger generation aren’t making it any easier. But every year, we’ve successfully connected campers with their imaginations, courage, determination — and just had fun!
You want your kids to be happy and healthy, safe, and successful. So this year, try your school break differently at Camps for Kids.
