Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps in Phoenix 2021


Living in Phoenix means our hot HOT summers need to be filled with busy camp days for our kids. Because we know, if we don’t plan our kids summers, we then become the “camp directors.” We know that finding the perfect summer camps mean fun-filled, and stress-free summers! We are eager to present our 2021 Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps in Phoenix, and we hope it provides you some insight as you make your summer plans!

We need to extend our greatest appreciation to all of our summer camp sponsors who made this guide possible!  When you sign your kiddos up for one of the camps listed below, please let them know that Phoenix Moms sent you their way!

Logic and Leadership Academy

200210 Medium ad sized 600x250 - Copy

Online learning and social distancing have made it harder for teenagers to stay motivated and engaged. We have created a unique virtual program to help students thrive in these challenging times. This course comes from 28 years of professional development research. We have found that stability, happiness, and success come from understanding leadership and social skills. But you cannot force teenagers to learn these principles. Students must learn how to apply them in their own lives and at their own pace.

In our program, students meet 4 days a week for 3 weeks for fun and interactive activities that relate to students’ interests. Students work one-on-one with a certified life coach to set goals, form successful habits, and plan for their futures.

This program is a $650 value, but due to COVID-19, LSA is offering this program for $350. Use code: MOMCARES and receive $25 off your registration!
