Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps in Scottsdale 2024


Living in Scottsdale 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 2024 Guide to Summer Camps in Scottsdale and surrounding areas, 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 Scottsdale Moms sent you their way!
