Summer Camp 2022 Guide
Summer Camp AZ is the one summer destination everyone can agree on.
We understand the struggle of short attention spans and long summers. We also totally get that too much of a good thing isn’t always a good thing. That’s why we designed Summer Camp AZ to be different from other summer programs for kids.
The Proud Parent Parade
Our approach to summer camps is something we’re proud of. We’re excited to introduce everything that Summer Camp AZ offers your kids.
No matter your approach to parenting or summer camps — your focus is on your kids. We’re proud parents, too. We know how to toot our kids’ (and our camps’) horns.
Here are a few distinguishable traits about Summer Camp AZ we’re proud of:
- Low camper-to-staff ratios
- Hiring teachers and staff with experience
- Peer groups with more similar interests and ages
- Character-building and development opportunities
- Daily educational STEM content
- Partnerships with local businesses
- Early drop off and late pick up times
- Affordable, reasonable prices
- High-engagement, fun kids’ activities
Your summer campers will be too busy to say they’re bored, but they might start bragging about how magnificent summer camp is.
Weekly Themes and What That Means
Weekly day-camps are for kids ages 5-12.
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 summer camp.
All that is good news for parents and makes for a much more enjoyable summer all around.

Explore the details of each theme and all of the thrills that week has to offer.
No matter which camp or week is the most enticing, the daily format includes:
- Early morning activity ease in
- Morning rotations
- Afternoon rotations
Mornings and afternoons rotate between host sites. Our Summer Camp AZ site is carefully scheduled and coordinated to ensure kids have as much exposure to the attractions as possible.
Almost all our host sites are trampoline parks, with a few dance exceptions. Each host site does offer slightly different attractions depending on the company and location.
