Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps in Phoenix 2022


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 also know that finding the perfect summer camps mean fun-filled, and stress-free summers! We present to you our 2022 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!

We’ve taken college-level curriculum and turned it into a fun and interactive 4-day course.

Phoenix Herpetological Sanctuary

The best way to learn about the animals is from the animals themselves! Each day includes activities that are STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) oriented, but these academic components are hidden within animal interactions, activities, games, and helping care for the animals. We utilize observations of animals that cannot be handled so that the learning can continue even if the touching cannot.

All camps are designed to be age appropriate.
