Scottsdale Moms Summer Camp Guide


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 Scottsdale Moms Summer Camp Guide, 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!

Leadership Society of Arizona

What is the key to success for teens? Success isn’t just about doing well in school or getting into a good college. A child is only truly successful when they learn to be happy and confident with who they are.

Happiness is the goal for this one-of-a-kind youth summer camp! Hosted at Arizona State University, the Logic, Leadership, and Life Skills summer program is the only place where teens can complete licensed professional development training. We’ve taken college-level curriculum and turned it into a fun and interactive 4-day course. Students will set new goals, learn leadership skills, and get individualized attention from our certified teen life coaches.

Cost: $350. $25 Discount Code: MOMCARES

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.
