2016 Summer Camps

For the first time, we are holding week long camps instead of our typical Session 3. The camps are included in your membership and will be held Monday – Friday from 8:00am-11:00am at various programming facilities. Each week of camp will be a full session of classes with certification on the last day. So if you are planning on signing up, be sure you can attend for the entire week.

The ONLY way to sign up for the camps is to call 602-305-7655 starting Tuesday, April 19th at 10:00am. Each camp is limited to the first 30 members (regardless of level) who register for that week. During the initial registration period, each member can sign up for ONE CAMP only, at any of the listed locations, regardless of where you currently attend programming classes.
